Beausejour

Trip Planner Canada  /  Manitoba  /  Beausejour
Beausejour is a town in the Canadian province of Manitoba, located in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead. It is 46 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg, just west of the Canadian Shield and Whiteshell Provincial Park. The French name means "beautiful place to live (abide)".HistoryIn 1906, the "Manitoba Glass Works" was founded, in a town now known as Beausejour, by Joseph Keilback and his partners. Sustained by a nearby deposit of high quality sand, it was the first glass container factory in Western Canada. Glassblowers from Poland and the United States, supported by local labour, used silica sands to produce bottles for breweries and soft drink companies in Winnipeg. In 1909 it was taken over by a Winnipeg businessman, who expanded production to include jars, medicine bottles, and ink bottles. At its peak, the Manitoba Glass Works employed 100 workers, but because of its inability to compete with Eastern Canadian manufacturers, was purchased in 1913 by a Montreal company and relocated to Redcliff, Alberta. The factory site remains, and was designated as a Provincial Heritage Site (number 41) on 27 September 1989.In 1912, the Town of Beausejour was incorporated.It is the birthplace of former Provincial Premier and Governor General Edward Schreyer. Edward Schreyer School is named after him in his honour.Beausejour was the setting for the 1990 film The Outside Chance of Maximilian Glick, and was largely filmed there.
