Minutes

Forms part of Fonds 12. Series consists of minutes for the Council of the Municipalite de St-Boniface, the Town of St. Boniface and the Ville de St-Boniface and/or City of St. Boniface. In addition to Council business, the minutes contain minutes and/or reports of committees created by Council (i.e. Committee on City Property, Finance Committee, Wood Purchasing Committee, Health and License Committee, Fire Committee, etc.).

The minutes begin in 1880 when St. Boniface was incorporated as a municipality. In 1893, St. Boniface was reclassified as a town and the minutes refer to the Ville de St-Boniface. Following incorporation as a City in 1908, the minutes continue to reference the Ville de St-Boniface in French and later the City of St. Boniface in English. Minutes are recorded in French until 1907. In 1908, minutes appear to have been recorded in French, with an English translation. Eventually, the French version contained very little French, with the bulk of minutes recorded in English even though a second copy was designated as the English Version. Both versions were retained.

In 1917, a monthly alphabetical index preceded the minutes for each month. The practice continued until 1932. In 1932, separate index volumes were created with subject matter organized alphabetically and page numbers provided for associated minutes numbers (minutes are first numbered in 1932).

Most of the minutes and indexes were originally filed in large binders. Where possible, they have been removed from bindings and rehoused in file folders to facilitate access. Council Minutes were filed chronologically and this arrangement has been maintained. The series is complete.
