INTRODUCTION

FIVE GREAT REASONS TO GET OUT OF THE CITY While there are hundreds of reasons urbanites might choose to move outside the perimeter, realtors can usually find a few common threads that are true for everyone. So if you want to discover the realities of rural life, it’s best to go straight to the horse’s mouth. What are residents of small towns saying? That life in the countryside is rich and bustling, and not as backwoods as one might think. Here are five things you might discover.

1

THE COMMUTE IS SHORTER THAN YOU THINK

If you intend to maintain your current job in Winnipeg, a commute is in your future. That said, commutes are a reality for most Manitobans, whether you’re a city- or small-town dweller. Communities in the Niverville/Ritchot region are all within 10 to 20 minutes of the perimeter. If you work in the downtown core, you can add that much time to your daily commute. If you work in the south end of the city or near a perimeter off-ramp, you can exchange the frustration of a rush-hour snail race to the tranquillity of a countryside drive, for about the same amount of time. Not only that, but studies show that stress is a major factor in our overall health. If you can’t avoid rush hour commutes altogether, then at least the second half of your commute can provide a relaxing wind-down before you arrive home to the family. Either way, a quiet drive home on a stretch of scenic highway is just good medicine.

2

AMENITIES ARE CLOSE AT HAND

Amenities aren’t as far away as they may seem. Most of the communities in the region boast

all the essentials you’ll need: gas stations, well-stocked grocery stores, banks, and vibrant restaurants. While you might need to hit 20 city blocks to run all your errands as a city dweller, rural communities are compact, keeping their commerce in tight, easy-to-access hubs. Pick up a pizza, get gas, hit the ATM, and be back home in time for the third period of the Jets game. If it’s activities you’re after, opportunities abound here. Every community, small to large, offers great ways to stay active all year long, from curling to baseball to martial arts and yoga. If you can’t find the activity you’re after in your neighbourhood, one of the collective communities within a ten-minute radius is likely to have it. A healthy focus on family is also prevalent in the region. Parks, playgrounds, and sports centres are at the heart of each community. Seasonal events such as summer fairs, winter carnivals, and farmers markets are a great way to have fun and make new friends.

3

YOU GET MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

While you’re out shopping for properties here, you’ll undoubtedly notice a few distinct benefits of buying outside city limits. Statistically, homes found in rural communities just cost less. While $300,000 in Winnipeg might purchase you a 1,000-square-foot 1970s bungalow, you may find spacious homes here that are new, or very nearly new, for much the same price. Even sweeter, when you buy rural you’re likely to enjoy a lot of extra space. While the average property frontage in Winnipeg is 50 feet, rural properties usually range from 60- to 80-foot frontages.

Think about what you could do with that much more space! A larger lot means more room for gardens, decks, play structures, and private green space.

4

EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE

There’s a long-standing myth that living in a small town means everyone knows everyone else’s business. There may be a kernel of truth to this, but there’s another way to look at it: small towns are infamous for their neighbourly outreach. For example, block parties and fireside gatherings are a common occurrence when you live in small towns. You will come to find that fences are for keeping dogs in, not your neighbours out. Small towns also offer countless opportunities to get involved. Communities thrive as residents pitch in, beautifying neighbourhoods, organizing fun events, and coaching sports teams. Getting involved means building long-term friendships with the people you rub shoulders with on a regular basis. The goal: to create vibrant and safe communities where children can develop and thrive.

5

THERE’S NO SHORTAGE OF PEACE AND QUIET

Living here can be like fishing on a placid lake. Even during the most active hours of the day, you’ll mostly hear a whole lot of quiet. Traffic flows are reduced, sirens are infrequent, and neighbours are more respectful of neighbours. So if you’re ready to leave the fast-paced rat race behind for a more laid-back lifestyle, you’re invited to come and see what our communities have to offer. But be warned: you may never want to leave.

HOUSING MARKET

REAL ESTATE BOOMS IN THE RURAL SOUTHEAST To put it mildly, 2020 was a volatile year. Businesses of all types were thrown for a loop owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. But in the midst of so much uncertainty, many homebuilders across the southeast had banner years. In the first six months of the year, when the housing market was most uncertain, the Town of Niverville approved 29 building permits, totalling $9 million of construction value. By the end of the year, that number had escalated to a head-spinning 115 permits, valued at $26 million. Of those permits total, 63 were single-family homes. This is the largest number of homes ever built in Niverville in one year. It’s a continuation of a long growth trend for the community, and there is every reason to expect it will continue for some time to come, especially with the recent opening of a brandnew high school and the imminent completion of a 99,000-square-foot community centre which has been more than six years in the making. The local business sector has also grown at a record pace in the last couple of years. Although these growth drivers are Niverville-specific, the broader region has also benefitted from a pandemic-era surge in demand for rural properties. With people spending more time at home than ever before, homebuyers have been attracted to the prospect of larger lots and lower population density. The RM of Ritchot also posted a really big year, issuing a grand total 190 building permits, totalling $41 million in construction value. This compares to 134 building permits of $21 million in 2019. Doug Dyck of Heritage Lane Builders says that in all his years in the home-building business, he has never seen the housing market so hot. But in the springtime, all this growth was a bit hard to predict. “As far as our anticipation initially coming into the year, I thought, ‘This is going to be a hot year,’” says Dyck. “But that was pre-COVID. So then COVID hit and there was so much uncertainty.” Heritage Lane Builders is most active in Niverville’s newer subdivisions, Fifth Avenue Estates and The Highlands, but they also have homes in Tourond Creek in St. Adolphe, as well as in communities further north like Headingly, Garson, and Tyndall. Dyck says his initial approach was to proceed carefully. But at the same time, he didn’t want the threat of the pandemic to stop

the company from being aggressive. So they chose to rev up construction, ultimately pulling a total of 74 building permits in 2020. Prior to this, their normal highwater mark was about 50 homes. Builders and developers in the region have been active in recent years to identify demand, figure out what customers are looking for, and create an inventory of homes that gets people excited. The result has been a spirit of collaboration. “We have some great developers out here,” Dyck says. “They’ve created such opportunity for us. We get a chance to sit down with them, to tell them what we want these lots to look like. They want to know what people are buying, what people want.” He cites the houses that went up last summer on Aberdeen Drive in The Highlands in Niverville. The Highlands is developed by Sunset Estates. “Aberdeen is a great example of that collaborative effort,” Dyck says. “I think on Aberdeen this year we’re going to have four homes going up. One other is with Gerald Stoez, and I know Connection’s got something up. I then have three more coming up on this street.” Connection Homes and Gerald Stoez Construction are two other prominent builders in the Niverville area. Others include Von Reisen Homes and Wallace, Wallace and Edwards. Dyck is straightforward about the fact that these other builders are his competition, but he points out that the builders all offer different products. “We all have different clients, we all build differently, and there’s a variation between one and the other,” he says. “We need that. If you had only one builder in town, I think that would be the death of the neighbourhood. You need diversification.” On the real estate side, 2020 has been a wild ride for agents. By February, they were teed up for one of their best years ever. “I believe the present growth was building into 2020 even without COVID-19,” says local real estate agent Clarence Braun. “However, what then changed was the sudden lack of listings in March as many people became very hesitant to list their homes.” Without a doubt, the arrival of the coronavirus brought the market to a standstill. “Around March 15, that’s when the world kind of stopped,” says Katie Knebel of Royal LePage. “And there was just this sense of ‘I

don’t know what’s happening.’ We just had no idea what’s in store for us.” That momentary pause turned out to be the calm before the storm. Around the early part of May, agents first noticed a spike in listings—and as properties came back onto the market, it became a seller’s market. “The buyers were there, and with less inventory the prices for home homes went up,” Braun says. In Niverville, from January 1 until July 27, there were 81 houses sold. In the same period in 2019, that number was 71. For the market to have caught up, and then exceeded itself, was a surprising sign. “There are pockets in Winnipeg were properties were going for 10 different offers, with $40,000 over asking,” says Knebel. “There was a stretch in Niverville where we had eight or nine houses around the $300,000 mark, give or take, that were sitting there and then all sold within a week of each other. There was just this massive rush for homes in Niverville around that price point—and ever since then, it really hasn’t stopped.” One key factor in the surge was historically low interest rates. The rates started to plunge at the beginning of the year, and there hasn’t been any indication since that rates are going to head back up in the near future. “I personally don’t think it’s been one thing that has affected the markets this year,” Knebel says. “I think it’s kind of been multiple things affecting it. And are they generally related to COVID? Probably, yes. But I think Manitoba just steadily keeps moving along, like we typically always do. We have one of the most stable markets, and I think during COVID we’re proving that to be true.” So what’s next? Realtors like Braun and Knebel say that predicting the future is a fool’s errand. But for this corner of Manitoba, the future certainly seems bright. “As of today, we are in a seller’s market,” Braun says. Knebel agrees and strikes a philosophical tone. “I think in real estate, there’s always a sense of just riding the wave,” she reflects. “You truly don’t know how it’s going to be. You put your head down, you push through, you work as hard as you can. But at the end of the day, it’s out of our control, as agents. And no matter how hard we work, how much effort we know we put into it, sometimes a pandemic comes along.”

COMMUNITY PROFILE

NIVERVILLE Dubbed Manitoba’s fastest growing community, Niverville lies just 20 minutes south of Winnipeg’s perimeter. Along with unprecedented growth, this town of just over 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 thrives here, the most recent census indicates a low average age of just 31. 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 chain, 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. There’s also no shortage of ready-to-build lots, if that’s your style. Numerous well-designed housing developments lie within town limits, offering stunning views of prairie vistas, ponds and walking paths, playgrounds, and even a golf course. Three schools provide learning for every level from preschool to Grade 12. New developments surround the community on all sides, with Fifth Avenue Estate to the southeast and The Highlands to the west. If you’re looking for breezy condo living, Prairie Crossings to the north offers both apartments and townhouse units overlooking a pond and natural playground. Once construction gets underway, Fifth Avenue West will be Niverville’s newest residential development, providing spacious lots for all types of new home builds. This development surrounds the brand-new, stateof-the-art Niveville High School, which has been uniquely connected, by indoor access, to a childcare centre as well as a $20-million sports and recreation complex, the Community Recreation and Resource Centre (CRRC). This facility, which is expected to open in the summer of 2021, provides student athletes with the advantage of regulation-size courts, running tracks, and an arena that boasts regulation ice space with seating for more than a thousand fans. The town’s impressive facilities, both indoor and out, have also given the community the unique opportunity to host the 2022 Manitoba Winter Games.

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 more than 300 jobs. Along with a vibrant retail sector, the

community is home to a huge diversity of trades. The Niverville Business Park, too, is the site of many up-and-coming operations, and it’s still got room to grow.

PLAY

Recreational and organized sports include soccer, baseball, hockey, curling, wrestling, and martial arts for young and old. Three fitness centres, 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. The CRRC will provide indoor fitness opportunities throughout the year with its running tracks and fieldhouse. 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 small animals in great variety. Have family pets that need the freedom to run? Niverville has a spacious off-leash dog park where they can let loose and play to their hearts’ content. If your family has an interest in the arts, a local dance company provides advanced instruction for people 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 one weekend per year is the Niverville Olde Tyme Country Fair. This massive street festival has become wildly popular and is now into its third 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.

COMMUNITY RESOURCES

NIVERVILLE COMMUNITY RESOURCE & RECREATION CENTRE The Community Resource & Recreation Centre (CRRC) is the culmination of a yearslong dream to establish a year-round indoor sports multiplex and community gathering place in Niverville. The 99,000-square-foot facility, already in its final months of construction, will upon completion be home to a regulation-size arena and large fieldhouse, along with mezzanine seating for several hundred spectators, dressing rooms, meeting rooms, and a two-storey indoor play structure. The highly versatile fieldhouse will be encircled by a second floor running track, and its 36,000 square feet of hardwood floor

space will be easily configurable into a soccer field, two basketball courts, four volleyball courts, or six badminton courts. Netting and curtains will be erected between sports activities. Although primarily a gymnasium-like space, the town foresees that the fieldhouse will also see frequent use for large public gatherings, such as high school graduations, concerts of various types, town receptions, and Remembrance Day ceremonies. The CRRC is connected to the state-ofthe-art Niverville High School, which first opened its door just two years ago. Together the brand-new buildings will form a vibrant

campus. The community’s Centennial Arena is also onsite, located immediately to the west of the new facilities. The project certainly hasn’t been cheap, coming with a price tag in excess of $20 million, the lion’s share of which has been paid for with federal and provincial grants. The town also kicked in $5 million, with the remaining amount coming from private donors. The concept for the CRRC was first unveiled in the fall of 2015, with fundraising beginning about one year later. Construction began in July 2019 and the building is now earmarked for completion in summer 2021.

D JOEY VILLANUEVA

COMMUNITY PROFILE

ST. ADOLPHE St. Adolphe is a quaint community nestled along the Red River. Its francophone roots are still very much in evidence, having been originally settled by the Metis in the mid-nineteenth century. From the centre of the community, the spire of a century-old Roman Catholic church reaches proudly to the sky, a shining example of that period’s beautiful architecture. In addition to its francophone roots, St. Adolphe welcomes a wide cross-section of cultures due to its close proximity to Winnipeg. Just 15 minutes from the south perimeter, the community has been expanding to the north and south in recent years. One St. Adolphe native cites the great people, the lifestyle, and ability to stargaze at night: “Our differences are our strength. We volunteer alongside our neighbours and cultivate relationships regardless of religion, culture, or political beliefs. When the people who share your neighbourhood are investing in your community, your school, your kids, that’s when the saying ‘It takes a village’ really takes shape.” Perhaps this is best demonstrated in recent years with the creation of a state-ofthe-art daycare where children learn, play, and build friendships. St. Adolphe acts as a hub for the RM of Ritchot. The municipal office is here. The town is also looked after by a busy recreation committee and vibrant council that actively works towards making the local communities great places to live, work, and play.

LIVE

The community offers a wide variety of housing options for families, retirees, and singles. Multifamily units, townhouses, and detached homes can be found in its residential developments. The Tourond Creek development, to the

14

1,638 POPULATION

south, has plenty of open lots to welcome new families to the area. Plenty of lots are also available for custom builds at pricing that beats any city lot by a country mile. These newer developments become mini-communities in themselves, places where families build long-term friendships, children play freely, and parents look out for the well-being of everyone’s kids. Parks, ponds, and skating rinks are scattered throughout. St. Adolphe is home to a combined French immersion and English elementary and middle school. Students are bussed to nearby St. Norbert to continue their high school educations. Basic amenities include a credit union, two churches, a pharmacy, an autobody, a gas station, and a convenience store. A number of restaurants provide takeout or dine-in options, or you can order in from the neighbouring community restaurants that deliver right to your door.

WORK

New development means room for commercial growth, too. A strip mall along the community’s main street offers attractive space for lease. The Tourond Creek development also has commercially zoned property, creating the potential for future job creation. Until then, the daily commute to Winnipeg is no ordeal. On the contrary! It’s a lovely trek up the scenic St. Mary’s Road, winding along the well-wooded riverbank. Commuters can also easily access Highway 75 via the Ray Delorme Bridge.

PLAY

This community is brimming with options for play and fitness. After a long day’s work, there’s no need to head back to the city for recreation or sport. St. Adolphe has been built

SCHOOLS

to make full use of its amazing surroundings, whether it’s fishing, tobogganing down the steep banks of the town’s protective dike, or enjoying a winter hike on the seasonal Friendship Trail that attracts people of all ages to enjoy the view along the river’s edge. The river is also a great place to pull out your binoculars to enjoy some of the 244 species of birds known to this area. St. Adolphe has built a reputation on creating a sanctuary for the unique Chimney Swift, and draws tourists from across the province to witness that bird’s annual migration. The indoor arena offers recreational and competitive hockey and ringette for all ages, and the curling rink is known to be among the best in the region. Cross-country ski trails run through and around the community, and snowshoe rentals are available from the town. If you love snowmobiling, St. Adolphe is a Mecca for on- or off-trail fun, accessible right outside your back door. The annual winter carnival is a great way to meet your neighbours and make lifelong friends. In summer, you can hike or cycle the Crow Wing Trail, plant some fresh greens in the community gardens, or put out a canoe for a relaxing paddle. Get the kids involved in baseball or soccer, or take them to the nearby Red River Speedway or local corn maze and ziplines for something a little different. Year-round activities include gymnastics, karate, kickboxing, badminton, and pickleball. Brownies, Guides, and Sparks have an active chapter here. There’s also a community library to keep the family reading. Garden Ridge Park provides a multisport court in summer and a skating rink in winter. Like many small communities, residents of St. Adolphe are big on heart. Fall suppers and old-time dances at the local hall draw crowds from around the region and demonstrate the best this tight-knit community has to offer.

COMMUNITY PROFILE

ÎLE-DES-CHÊNES Île-des-Chênes is a hopping little community where growth and change have become the new normal. Just seven minutes south of Winnipeg’s Sage Creek neighbourhood, Îledes-Chênes is located along the twinned Highway 59, making commutes to and from the city a breeze. This francophone town was settled in the mid-nineteenth century in an area prolific with oak trees, and that’s where the town gets its name, which translates to Oak Island. Today, the community is surrounded on all sides by rich farmland. You don’t have to get far from Winnipeg to rid yourself of the light and sound pollution cities are renowned for. Many have come to recognize this small community as home of the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre, located just to the north. A one-of-its-kind facility in Manitoba, the Haven provides shelter and a hospital for injured wildlife, as well as an education centre, ponds, and interpretive park for those interested in learning more about our region’s rich variety of wildlife. The TC Energy Centre is another regional draw. Named for the pipeline that runs nearby, the environmentally friendly and sustainable facility offers an exceptional venue for weddings, trade shows, and socials, all at small-town pricing.

LIVE

No matter your housing preference, diversity is the name of the game. Condos are available in apartment and townhouse styles, Main Street features rental units, and there are plenty of single-family homes on large lots.

1,576 POPULATION

Two schools offer both English and French immersion options from preschool through Grade 12. The high school boasts a prestigious athletic program for budding young athletes, as well as a community library. Amenities include a wide array of licensed restaurants, including Thai food, pizza parlours, sandwich shop, and the local bar and grill. You’ll also find a gas station chain, hardware store, credit union, automotive repair shops, convenience stores, and a whole lot more. New amenities pop up regularly in the commercial strip bordering the highway. A community wellness centre on Main Street is home to the local doctor, pharmacy, physiotherapy centre, and legal office.

WORK

As new businesses move in, job opportunities multiply. Île-des-Chênes has been paving the way for new business for some time, with a new commercial development offering oneto one-and-half-acre lots with highway access on the north side of town. Plenty of turnkey lease and rental space is available if you’re inclined to start a business of your own, at rates a fraction of the cost of Winnipeg’s. This community is part of the Southeast Commerce Group, a chamber of commerce that’s dedicated to providing services and benefits to businesses in the region.

PLAY

Optimist Park is home to the Seine River Minor Ball Association, and its well-maintained diamonds make this park a baseball hub for the entire region.

SCHOOLS

For the green thumb, garden boxes are available for rent and provide wholesome ways to connect with other gardeners. Year-round arts and fitness programming include painting classes, yoga, pickleball, gymnastics, and karate. A local studio trains kids in a variety of dance disciplines. The Vintage Club, a group of active local seniors who enjoy staying fit and having fun, hosts a regular luncheon to maintain ties and share stories. Of course, it’s rural Manitoba, where hockey and ringette take centre stage in winter. The arena provides free public skating and recreational hockey for all ages. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing along the community’s groomed trails are another great way to stay active. Additionally, avid snowmobilers can find trails and wide-open countryside in every direction. The Snowman Festival is an annual highlight, with organized family activities happening inside the TC Energy Centre after the snowman-building contest, skating, and toboggan run have chilled your fingers and nose. The festival offers a variety of art and play activities for the kids. Mom and Dad can show off their skills in the pea soup and chili contest and then take in the vintage car show. The event closes with a beer garden, social, and fireworks display. For small-town fun on the edge of the city, you can hardly go wrong with a community like Île-des-Chênes.

COMMUNITY PROFILE

GRANDE POINTE Grande Pointe is a community so close to the city that it almost feels like a suburb. Just minutes from the south perimeter, this picturesque spot lies along the tranquil Seine River. Unlike many suburbs, though, you don’t lose the small-town feel. Community is vibrant and active here, where neighbours get to know neighbours and friendships are strong. Kids can play on the streets without concern, and a surge in young families and retirees means your kids will have plenty of friends and grandparents nearby.

The whole family can enjoy beach volleyball, basketball courts, baseball diamonds, and an outdoor skating rink with a warming hut and restrooms. The Community Clubhouse is a 3,200-square-foot facility that has room to seat up to 150 people, making it a perfect venue for any event. The Grande Pointe Homeowners Association hosts the annual Rock n’ the Park every June. Free public skating and games of pickleball make the park an active place year-round. The Seine River provides a serene place for canoeing, and hiking trails meander its banks. This densely wooded area is also a unique spot for wildlife and bird-watching, or maybe lounging in the sunshine with a fishing rod in hand. Across the highway, golfers can practice their swing at the Southside Golf Course. Seniors support and activities are provided by the RM of Ritchot. The municipality has many other communities in the area, so active fitness and adventure are never more than a short drive from your front door.

While few direct amenities are found here, few are needed. Sage Creek and River Park South are just minutes away. Île-des-Chênes is just five minutes south along the highway. High-speed internet services are available in the area.

COMMUNITY PROFILE

STE. AGATHE Located just 20 minutes south of Winnipeg, Ste. Agathe provides a peaceful repose for those looking for a home in the heart of nature. Here, the winding Red River provides an authentic riverfront experience, accessible from anywhere in town. This primarily francophone community has a compelling history, founded by Quebec settlers for its rich farmland. Ste. Agathe was the name of the Roman Catholic parish built here in the 1800s, followed by a French Catholic school and a convent. This was also a stopping point for the steamboat Cheyenne, which ferried settlers to the region until it was shipwrecked near the town in 1885. While the community has long been a welcoming place for people of every nationality, its French roots are definitely part of its charm. Locals can take French language classes and attend the many bilingual events held year-round. The parish’s brick edifice, a lasting heritage icon, stands at the centre of town as a constant reminder of the area’s rich history.

LIVE

New residential developments have expanded along the community’s south boundary, providing options for turnkey occupancy or large lots for new builds. Underground hydro, asphalt streets, curbs, and gutters offer city amenities without sacrificing that small-town feel. Closer to the main drag, property hunters can find low-maintenance condominiums. École Ste. Agathe, part of the province’s Franco-Manitoban School Division, provides students with a French education. A French-language preschool is also available here. English and French immersion options are just a short bus trip away. A large daycare offers full-time and part-time care for infants to school-age children.

POPULATION

The school boasts a community library, and just up the street you’ll find the hall where residents gather to enjoy fall suppers, town meetings, dances, and indoor markets. When you’re not in the mood to cook, the local bar and grill whips up a delectable poutine! Other amenities include a gas station, automotive repair shop, convenience store, insurance agency, credit union, and of course a large array of home-based businesses. If you’ve got friends or family coming in for a visit, daily and seasonal camping is available at Cheyenne Park, or you can discover the uniquely French-Canadian experience of the Maison près de la Rouge Bed and Breakfast.

WORK

Because of its position along the busy Highway 75, the Riel Industrial Park has been growing into an in-demand commercial hub, attracting big businesses like Hemp Oil Canada, Flying J Travel Centre, Del Mar Commodities, and Upper Deck Transport. These kinds of businesses create jobs for hundreds of locals, fuelling residential growth and a broader tax base. And with four-lane highway access to Winnipeg, the commute is always quick and easy. With the final stage of a major infrastructure upgrade almost complete, residents and business owners of Ste. Agathe will soon be enjoying access to fibre internet with speeds of up to one gigabyte up and down.

PLAY

The summer kicks off with the Cheyenne Summer Fest, an annual highlight which always draws a crowd for the baseball tournament, live bands, children’s entertainment, voyageur games, and fireworks display. A beer garden and food booths keep the crowds well-greased.

SCHOOLS

The season ends with a traditional fall supper, French-Canadian style. All summer long, locals enjoy the community garden, picnic shelter, baseball, soccer, volleyball, and Frisbee-golf at Cheyenne Park. Hikers and cyclers make good use of a network of trails that winds between the river and the community dike. 2021 is set to be a big year for the community, as the park gets ready to undergo a major overhaul, adding amenities such as a beach and possibly even yurts for the adventurous camper. As well, the installation of an 80-foot floating dock along the Red River in the heart of town means watersport enthusiasts will have exceptional access to the meandering river and its bucolic surroundings. Even the winter months provide no excuse for boredom here with options for ice-fishing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and indoor and outdoor public skating. Ste. Agathe is also a perfect home base if you’re a snowmobiler looking for great trails and wide-open space. Organized sport includes hockey and ringette, and if you don’t play you can always cheer on your neighbours at the annual outdoor Winter Classic hockey tournament. Fitness classes for the whole family include yoga, Zumba, taekwondo, and kickboxing. The community provides programming for seniors and toddlers, too. Just a few kilometres down the road, the Bruce Campbell Farm and Food Discovery Centre is an excellent place to take the family and learn, in an interactive space, how food gets from our region’s many expansive farms to the table. Take a hayride tour of the entire facility. You can also make home-baked bread and ice cream at one of the many workshops. In Ste. Agathe, small-town living may just bring out the best in you.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

OPEN FOR BUSINESS The communities south of Winnipeg are continuing to experience a residential boom, with growth on the rise. The RM of Ritchot’s population has jumped 21.9 percent in the last five years, and Niverville is almost certain to be the next Manitoba town to achieve city status. In lockstep with this significant increase in population, commercial and industrial demand has risen as well. The industrial parks in Ste. Agathe, Niverville, and Grande Pointe are great showcases for the ways in which the local economy has been successful in attracting bigger players to the southeast region. As well, Niverville and Île-des-Chênes both have promising new strip mall projects, providing ideal opportunities for retail outlets, franchises, and office spaces. Lease rates for these new retail spaces are about half the rates typically found in newer commercial developments in Winnipeg. Land prices in the industrial parks are also highly competitive. For example, the Riel Industrial Park in Ste. Agathe, which is on its third and final phase, is offering lots starting at $73,255 per acre. Those lots are directly adjacent to Highway 75, the province’s foremost link to the U.S. and its market.

FIGURE 1 - GROWTH RATE

The chart outlines growth rates in the southeast between 2011 and 2016.

Prices in the Niverville Business Park start at as little as $55,800 per lot. Not only is the population here growing rapidly, but it’s younger than average and its household income is significantly higher. In fact, household income, which was already strong in 2014, has grown further according to the region’s latest Regional Economic Analysis Process (REAP) reports, completed by the province of Manitoba. In Niverville, 42.1 percent of households fall into the report’s highest income bracket of $100,000-plus. The percentage of homes in the lower brackets has shrunk. In neighbouring Ritchot, the highest income bracket reaches a staggering 47.3 percent. This indicates a population with stable employment and high disposable income. Currently, 74.2 percent of residents in the municipality of Ritchot commute to work in Winnipeg, with Niverville not far behind at about 71 percent. The population and income level figures, paired with commute data, indicates that the labour force has been largely untapped, a scenario which bodes well for larger companies choosing to set up shop in the region’s communities and industrial parks. These towns’ proximity to Winnipeg is also

a positive in terms of a business’s ability to tap into Winnipeg’s own labour pool. After all, the convenient commute works both ways. In 2016, economic reports pegged the number of jobs in Niverville at 1,509, representing approximately one-third of the total population. About 200 of these jobs are in the retail sector. In Ritchot, the numbers are somewhat lower, with its 2,022 jobs representing about one-quarter of the population. Nonetheless, Ritchot’s jobs have increased by more than 13 percent in the last five years, three times the provincial average, while the number of jobs in Niverville has risen on par with the provincial figures. Agriculture and construction are among the largest industry sectors in the region. Healthcare and assistance, education services, and transportation and warehousing are other areas of strong job growth. The abundance of skilled labour and high rates of population growth, coupled with competitive occupancy costs, provide an exceptional opportunity for business expansion and development in this part of the province. There has never been a better time for businesses to explore the potential just outside the perimeter!
