Tolstoi is a hamlet in the Municipality of Emerson – Franklin, Manitoba, Canada. It is located along Manitoba Highway 59 at the junction with Provincial Road 209, approximately 90 kilometres (56 mi) south of Winnipeg and 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) north of the Tolstoi Port of Entry at the Canada–United States border.
Tolstoi was founded by Ukrainian immigrants in the 1890s, one of the earliest Ukrainian settlements in western Canada. Once a thriving community, Tolstoi's population has declined dramatically in recent decades. Its current population is generally older, as most young people have left for jobs in Winnipeg.
The community is served by a grocery store, Ukrainian Catholic and Ukrainian Orthodox churches. The Tolstoi Hotel and Bar closed in 2008.The community is also the home to the Tolstoi Seniors Centre which is located in the former two-room school house. The hamlet also has a Ukrainian National community hall which is rented out for social events.
Tolstoi is the transfer point for microwave (S-band) television signals between Winnipeg and North Dakota. The closest weather station is at Emerson.
