Dates of existence



Following the Provincial Act of 1880, the Province of Manitoba was split into rural municipalities. The areas surrounding the City of Winnipeg were divided into three municipalities: Assiniboia, St. Boniface, and Kildonan. In 1914, the Municipality of Kildonan was split between the river into East and West Kildonan and the Rural Municipality of West Kildonan was incorporated. The first Council for the Rural Municipality was held in 1914 with Edmund Partridge as Reeve. In 1921 West Kildonan was incorporated as a town until it was incorporated as a City on April 25, 1961 with C.N. Cushner as Mayor. The City was dissolved in 1972 when it joined eleven other municipalities in amalgamation with the City of Winnipeg.
