Niverville has enjoyed the status of being Manitoba’s fastest growing urban centre and within the top 20 fastest growing town’s in Canada (Stats Canada, 2006 Census). 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 20 minutes south of Winnipeg just West of Highway 59. Niverville’s population as of the 2011 census was 3450, up 43.7% from its 2006 level of 2464. The town located in the Hanover municipality.
Niverville has several recreational facilities, including the Niverville Centennial Arena, home of the Niverville Clippers, the Niverville Curling Club, an outdoor tennis court located at Niverville Collegiate, the Elite Fitness and Dance gym, Opa’s Park, the fairgrounds (located behind the arena) which hosted the Heartland Rodeo Association finals in 2007, and Hespeler Park, which has a tobogganing hill, soccer pitches, baseball diamonds, a beach volleyball court, and a small biking trail. The Crow Wing Trail also runs through the town. The Good Times Hockey League is an eight-team recreational hockey league that plays out of the Niverville Centennial Arena and Ste. Agathe Arenas.
Six churches serve the various Christian faith communities of the town.
Niverville’s signature event is the annual Niverville Old Tyme Country Fair, which is held the second weekend of June. During the three day event, Niverville’s Main Street is shut down to traffic, and Midway rides, as well as food and farmers market stands are set up. Various events, such as fireworks and a parade are also held. As the popularity of the fair grew, so has its budget, and today professional acts such as Dean Gunnarson, Doc Walker and Brent Butt headline the fair.
