By combining both neutron diffraction and magnetization measurements the magnetic phase diagram is completed for Mn3-xFexSi system. The antiferromagnetism is realized in x < 1.25, and then ferromagnetism appears in x ≥ 1.25. The Néel temperature increases gradually with increasing x, and the Curie temperature for x > 1.25 seems to continue smoothly from the value of TN. In the low temperature region for x ≥ 1.25, canting ferromagnetism takes place.
