Welcome to the Rural Municipality of La Broquerie

pic-cow.jpgIn 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.

The R.M. of La Broquerie approved a new Dog Control By-Law (By‑Law No. 6-2016). The by-law requires all dog owners in an urban centre which include the Villages of La Broquerie, Marchand, Zhoda and rural residential areas to obtain a license for their dog(s) effective January 1, 2017.
The annual fee for a license for spayed female or neutered male dog is $15.00. For each intact male dog or non-spayed female dog the license is $25.00. Each dog will receive a dog tag at the municipal office upon obtaining a license. A reminder that as per sections #12 and 14(a) of the By-Law, a person shall not own, harbor, keep or have in possession or control more than two (2) dogs per household.
Every dog owner must produce, before a license is issued or renewed for the dog, evidence of a current rabies vaccination status for that dog from a licensed veterinarian.
A dog owner does not have to produce evidence of a current rabies vaccination status in order to obtain or renew a license in respect of his dog if he can produce a statement in writing signed by a licensed veterinarian certifying that the dog cannot be vaccinated for rabies for medical reasons.
If you or someone you know have a dog it is strongly recommended to read the new Dog Control By-Law. A copy can be viewed at the following link.
