The RM of Headingley and Winnipeg have a storied shared history. Headingley and the surrounding area was one of the first placed populated by colonial settlers in Manitoba, owing to its prime location along the Assiniboine River. This meant a large number of farmers found the area suitable to create homes for their families. One of the most important historical figures in the area was John Taylor, a Métis farmer, businessman, schoolteacher and father to 22 children. The influence of Mr. Taylor caused Qualico Homes to build a new community in the area named after him, a community which is bringing many new citizens into Headingley, a sort of 21st century settler.
For quite some time, Headingley and Winnipeg were the same city, owing to their proximity. In 1972, Winnipeg and the surrounding areas sought to unite into one larger city in an effort to lower administrative costs and to integrate services in the wide variety of cities that amalgamated. Reaction to the success of the “Unicity” endeavour is mixed, and in 1993 Headingley decided to secede, as it felt its needs were not being met by the urban government. Today, as its own RM, citizens of Headingley enjoy many of the advantages of the urban life, without its inconveniences. The people in Headingley enjoy the open spaces, naturalism and quieter pace of rural life, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, along with lower property taxes. It’s a wonderful place to set up a life; your home and your business can thrive in Headingley.
