City Information

The City of Little Canada is a unique, historic community. Did you know that we received our name from French Canadians who settled here long ago? Our citizens are proud of their French Canadian heritage and we work hard to maintain our unique identity despite our busy metropolitan surroundings. We are centrally located on the northeast hub of the metropolitan freeway system, only minutes from the Minnesota State Capitol and downtown St. Paul and 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis.
