  • MLOA office on the move


    We would like to advise our members and friends that the MLOA office at 1020 Lorimer Blvd in Winnipeg will be closing on Jan. 31. We will be running a “virtual office” for a while before transitioning to a new office space later this year.


    In the mean time, we have a new mailing address. Effectively immediately, please direct mail for MLOA to:

    PO Box 68117, Osborne Village RPO
    Winnipeg, MB, R3L 2V9

    For deliveries or in-person business please contact MLOA executive director Paul Turenne at 204-772-1912 or
    Paul is also available at those coordinates anytime for member inquiries and regular MLOA business.

    We ask that you please delete our Lorimer Blvd. and old Gamble Place addresses from your records. FYI, the Manitoba Hotel Association will continue to be located at the Lorimer Blvd. office. We would like to wish our longtime office companions at MHA the very best and thank them for years of friendship and support in the time since our organizations’ offices first became co-located nearly 10 years ago.
