Weston is a neighbourhood in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada located south of the Canadian Pacific Railway Weston Yards, west of McPhillips Street, north of Notre Dame Avenue, and east of Keewatin Street. It is a working class residential and industrial district with some retail establishments along Logan Avenue and on Keewatin Street. Historically the neighbourhood was nicknamed "CPR Town" due to the large number of railway workers who resided there. As the number of jobs at the Weston Shops declined, correspondingly, so did the neighbourhood. About 80% of the housing stock was constructed before 1960. Weston's population was 5,785 as of 2001. Aboriginals comprise 23.9% of the population and Visible Minorities 23.6%, including over 1,000 persons of Filipino origin. The average household income in the neighbourhood was $34,588, or 65% of the Winnipeg average.
