RM of Taché

Mayor Justin Denis Bohemier

Stretching from the Red River Floodway in the west to the beginning of the Canadian Shield in the east, the Rural Municipality of Taché is home to approximately 11,500 rural citizens with various ethnic backgrounds. The municipality was formed by an Act of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba in May 1880 and was named after Archbishop Alexandre Antonin Taché in recognition of his work as a missionary and for helping settlers in this part of the province. Its population is expected to increase up to 18,584 by 2035 which is an indication of its steady growth rate. Taché is home to strong and close-knit communities with Lorette and Landmark as the main residential and commercial hubs of the municipality and Ste. Genevieve, Dufresne, Ross and Linden as other noteworthy communities. The natural amenities of the area are well-appreciated and the area has become a centre for various activities. Lorette, for instance, attracts many visitors to its annual winter curling bonspiel.
