Default Winnipeg, where to rent a home?

I been told Winnipeg isn't a good city to live in due to high crime there. My struggle is to find a good place to rent with 2 bedrooms to start with at a good price. I am planning to apply for work at the Airport there, so I might want something close by. Is it a good area to live, crimewise and rentwise?

I think if you go looking for crime you will find it.
If you want to live in a nice area close to the airport pick St. James.
If you want to live in a really safe area pick St Vital, or North Kildonan.

I lived in Winnipeg most of my life and never had a problem, my family still lives there and have never had a problem.

You don't want to live in the core areas, that would be dangerous.

Best of luck, I miss Winnipeg but NOT the winters, lol.

I now live in Florida.

Hi!
I been living in Winnipeg for at least 17 years, i am from Trois-Rivieres Quebec..
Well its true that there is a lots of crime here but usually its around aboriginal people if you mind of your own business you should be fine...i like it here i really never had any problem with anyone.. Like all city there is alway crime some more some less... but i am sure you will like it here....in the summer at 10:00 the sun just goes down.. i love it ...

Just try not to find appartment around the downtow area... St-Boniface is french its not too bad too, St-Vital is a quiet area also there is St-James but which is close to the Airport...

Good luck
