Niverville

Niverville is a town in the Canadian province of Manitoba, located approximately 30 kilometers south of Winnipeg. This primarily farming community has seen an influx of people moving from the city looking to raise a family outside of the 'big city' influence.

This migration has made Niverville one of the youngest and fastest growing communities in Manitoba. The town is located at the crossing of Provincial Road 311 and the CPR Emerson rail line, between Provincial Road 200 and Provincial Trunk Highway 59. Niverville's population at the 2011 census was 3,450, up 43.7% from its 2006 level of 2,464.

The town lies between the northwest corner of the Rural Municipality of Hanover and the southeastern portion of the Rural Municipality of Ritchot.

Niverville is named after 18th-century explorer and fur trader Chevalier Joseph-Claude Boucher de Niverville. This choice of name was made by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1877 – one year before the railway into town was built and an official town plan was actually registered.

Originally within the Rural Municipality of Hanover, Niverville was incorporated as a village in 1969 and later as a town in 1993.
