Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes
The Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes became an unincorporated village administered by a council committee, or Townboard, of the RM of Lorne and the RM of South Norfolk in 1934. The first committee was: Louis Fouasse, President; Joseph Jamault and Camille Clément, directors; Louis Bazin, secretary. The council committee would evolve into the council of the non-incorporated village between 1946 and 1962.
On January 1, 1963 the Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes became an incorporated entity independent of the RM of Lorne and the RM of South Norfolk. The first council of the incorporated village was: Marcel Roch, Mayor; Raymond Durand, Raphaël Vuignier, Marcel Deroche and Louis Dupasquier, councillors; André Fouasse, secretary-treasurer.
In December 2012, the Province of Manitoba made an announcement requiring that municipalities with fewer than 1000 population be amalgamated with neighbouring municipalities. As of January 1, 2015, the incorporated Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes was amalgamated with RM of Lorne and the Village of Somerset. The Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes is now Ward 6 of the Municipality of Lorne and is represented by one councillor and its Local Urban District committee members.
