Welcome to the Rural Municipality of La Broquerie
In the municipality of La Broquerie we’ve always known we have something special. Here, in the heart of beautiful Southeastern Manitoba, we’ve built a fully bilingual community that we believe captures the essence of healthy country living – a community that is safe, cooperative and friendly, a community that is respectful of its heritage while embracing opportunities for progress, a community that is small enough to care, but is also big enough to prosper.
La Broquerie is Manitoba’s fastest growing rural municipality. During a time when many of Manitoba’s rural communities have experienced decline, La Broquerie’s peaceful country setting and vibrant community life have helped attract new people and new business to our community. It has also helped encourage many of our young people to stay, live and work here. The result is a dynamic and youthful community where the average age is 28.8 years, nearly 10 years below the provincial average (2006 census).
A Place of Heritage
Since our community’s founding by French Canadian pioneers in 1883, La Broquerie’s residents have shared a common desire to preserve their French culture and heritage. The town maintains an elected cultural community whose focus is to promote and preserve the French Canadian culture locally. To this end, La Broquerie hosts an annual festival, Fête de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste in June. This event is enthusiastically celebrated in the true French tradition, and provide wonderful opportunities for everyone in the community to come together and socialize.
Due to extremely dry conditions expected this spring, please be advised that NO burning will be permitted (including fire pits, burn barrels, etc.) within the boundaries of the Rural Municipality of La Broquerie effective May 3rd, 2016 and until further notice. These measures are being implemented to increase life safety, alleviate potential damages to properties and to curb unnecessary fire protection costs. Persons found in contravention of this restriction is subject to fines and in the event the Fire Department is called out to extinguish outdoor fires as a result of non-compliance, the Municipality will assess all costs incurred to extinguish the fire to the property owner. Fines, penalties and all other costs incurred are authorized and regulated by the Municipality’s Fire Prevention and Control By-Law No. 09-2015 click here Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
