Dubbed Manitoba’s fastest growing community, Niverville lies just 20 minutes south of Winnipeg’s perimeter. Along with unprecedented growth, this town of nearly 5,000 is quickly becoming a regional hub for commerce, health, and wellness. It also has convenient highway access to Winnipeg via three major routes. 

Niverville has long been known for its philanthropy, community spirit, and innovation. The Niverville Heritage Centre campus is just one example of the town’s one-of-a-kind facilities. Funded and built by the community for its seniors, the eight-and-a-half-acre complex includes life lease, assisted living, and supportive living units alongside a personal care home. It’s one of the only facilities in Canada where couples can live out their senior years and remain together to the very end. 

Also on campus, the Open Health medical centre provides primary healthcare services for the entire region. Doctors, nurse practitioners, mental health workers, dieticians, and other specialists work together in a holistic atmosphere. An abundance of chiropractors, massage therapists, physiotherapists, and other health professionals also have offices throughout town, making sure the region is well looked after. 

While the senior population is thriving here, the most recent census indicates a low average age of 32. Suffice to say, Niverville is home to a vast cross-section of residents, including an equally strong contingent of young families and children.  

Amenities abound, including a hardware store, furniture store, pharmacy, and supermarket. It’s all here. A wide variety of licensed and non-licensed restaurants provide options for every palate or mood. 

Live. If you’re looking for a home, there’s something here for everyone—rentals, condos, multifamily, and detached homes. Also, there’s no shortage of ready-to-build lots, if that’s your style. Four beautiful new developments lie within town limits, offering stunning views of prairie vistas, ponds and walking paths, playgrounds, and even a golf course.  

Recent residential growth has led to the announcement of a new state-of-the-art high school, set to open in the fall of 2019. This school, Niverville’s third, will have indoor access to the forthcoming Community Resource Centre, a multimillion-dollar sports and recreation complex that aims to give student athletes the advantage of regulation-size courts, running tracks, and a brand-new ice arena. The new high school will also house a daycare centre upon completion, complementing the daycare options already available. 

Younger students attend the recently upgraded elementary school, and the current high school is scheduled to be transformed into a middle school. Preschool programs are available in the elementary school. 

Work. As the residential neighbourhoods grow, so does commerce. More businesses are setting up shop in the area on an annual basis, creating a growing number of local jobs. The Heritage Centre and medical clinic alone provide the community with over 300 jobs. 

Along with a vibrant retail sector, the community is also home to a huge diversity of trades. The business park, too, is the site of many up-and-coming operations. 

Play. Recreational and organized sports include soccer, baseball, hockey, curling, wrestling, and martial arts for young and old. Two gyms, walking and cycling paths, and a variety of indoor and outdoor skating rinks can keep an active person busy year-round. A variety of fitness classes can be found throughout the seasons, including yoga, CrossFit, boot camps, and sessions for moms and tots. 

When it opens, the Community Resource Centre will provide even more indoor opportunities for recreation and fitness. Hespeler Park, in the heart of the community, is a great place to head to for picnics, summer tournaments, cross-country skiing, a family stroll, or a cooldown at the splash pad. The park is also home to a natural wildlife habitat teeming with birds and bugs of every variety. Even family pets have a place to run and play at the off-leash dog park. 

If your family has an interest in the arts, a local dance company provides advanced instruction for kids of all ages in a variety of disciplines. Art and instrumental classes happen all about town, led by seasoned artists.  

But the event that draws in double the town’s population for one weekend every year is the Niverville Olde Tyme Country Fair. This massive street festival has become wildly popular and is now into its second decade of delivering a rousing schedule of renowned entertainers, carnival rides, classic car shows, and plenty of great food. This is where the town pulls out all the stops and really shines.
