History

The Honorable Duff Roblin P.C. and Maitland B. Steinkopf MBE, QC formed the concept of a Manitoba Centennial Centre in 1960 to commemorate Canada’s centenary and initiate a broad scheme of urban renewal in Winnipeg’s Point Douglas Area.

“The Centre will grow and will serve succeeding generations in Manitoba as a permanent focus for the performing arts, the sciences and the cultures of the wide spectrum of our people.”

Centennial Concert Hall, as part of the Centennial Centre, was built as a Canadian Centennial project. A team of professionals worked together to create this $ 8 million, 253,014 square foot venue with a seating capacity of 2,305.
