Reeve Tiffany Fell
As the oldest and fastest growing rural municipality in the region, the Rural Municipality of Springfield includes a large area of land stretching from the industrial site on the eastern boundary of the City of Winnipeg through urban, rural residential, agricultural and natural landscapes to the Agassiz Provincial Forest on the municipality’s eastern boundary. The area is home to more than 15,000 people and its population is expected to grow to over 24,000 people by the year 2035. Its diverse rural landscape entails miles of snowmobile trails, horse trails, flat prairie farmlands, and the well-known Birds Hill Provincial Park. Due to this rich and diverse landscape, the area hosts year-round outdoor activities open to local residents and visitors. The major settlement in the municipality is Oakbank which serves as the administrative centre of the area.
