Welcome to Canada’s Most #NotoriouslyCharming Downtown

Thank you for visiting the official website of the Downtown Moose Jaw Association (DMJA)! Incorporated in 2019, the DMJA’s objective is to aid, stimulate, develop, and beautify the Moose Jaw Downtown Development Area. Our downtown is exciting, vibrant and has so much to offer locals and tourists, year-round! It is truly Canada’s Most #NotoriouslyCharming Downtown!

Why is it “Notorious”?

Well, legend has it that the World’s Most Notorious Gangster, Al Capone, spent time in Moose Jaw’s downtown underground tunnels to escape the feds in his home of Chicago. That’s also the reason Moose Jaw is sometimes referred to as “Little Chicago”.

While we don’t condone any of Mr. Capone’s dirty deeds, we’re also not running away from our history. Instead, we find #NotoriouslyCreative ways to tell our story, starting with the Tunnels of Moose Jaw’s “Chicago Connection” tour.

Beyond that, we’ve redefined the “Notorious” term, and we trust while you’re here you will find Moose Jaw #NotoriouslyFriendly, #NotoriouslyEntertaining and #NotoriouslySoMuchMore!

We’re undergoing a website update, and will soon have a comprehensive directory of our downtown shops, restaurants and services. In the meantime, you can explore shopping, dining and tourist activity options with these links to Tourism Moose Jaw and the Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce.

Clothing, Accessories, Health & Beauty, Souvenirs and much more – you’ll find it in downtown Moose Jaw!

Possibly the hardest part of your visit will be deciding what to eat. You’ll find a #NotoriouslyDiverse selection of meals and snacks from around the world. Start planning your Moose Jaw menu here.

From world-class hotels to more modest accommodations, there’s plenty of options for an overnight (or three) in downtown Moose Jaw.
