Renovations to the Winnipeg courthouse building were completed and the main entrance was reopened to the public with more physical accessibility than ever, the province said Monday.
“We are pleased that the major renovation work at 408 York Avenue is complete,” said Justice Minister Cameron Friesen.
“The many improvements ensure that visitors can enter the building, go through security and navigate the space safely.”

Friesen said the reindeer, which is priced at more than $ 6.1 million, includes a new entrance hall, a universal barrier-free restroom, a scooter-sized elevator and barrier-free improvements to public areas.
“These updates ensure that all Manitobaans have access to our main court building,” said Minister for Families Rochelle Squires.
“All Manitobaans, including those with disabilities, must be able to access court services and these renovations will make it easier for them.”
