The Winnipeg Manitoba Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) under construction in Winnipeg, Manitoba.[2] The intent to construct the temple was announced by church president Thomas S. Monson on April 2, 2011, during the church's semiannual general conference.

The Winnipeg Manitoba Temple will be the ninth temple built in Canada and the first in Manitoba. On December 3, 2016, a groundbreaking ceremony to signify beginning of construction took place with Larry Y. Wilson, executive director of the church's Temple Department, presiding.[3]
