Laurier Branch

Laurier is in the Parkland region of Manitoba, approximately 155 kilometres north of Brandon.

Laurier was identified as a railway point on a map in 1896 with the Canadian National Railway arriving the following year. The post office was opened as Fosbery, and charged to Laurier in 1897 to honour Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Prime Minister of Canada at that time.

Laurier is home to four Manitoba historical sites:

  • Fosbery / Laurier School
  • Laurier Notre Dame des Victoires Roman Catholic Cemetery
  • Laurier Poineers Monument (located in Laurier Centennial Park)
  • Union Grain Elevator / Federal Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator

Prairie Mountain Credit Union, which had branches in Ste. Rose and Laurier, provided financial services in those and the surrounding communities of McCreary, Eddystone, Alonsa, Ochre River and others since 1941. Prairie Mountain Credit Union merged with Sunrise Credit Union on April 1, 2018.
