Welcome to the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton Website

Bifrost-Riverton is located approximately 100 kilometers north of Winnipeg, Manitoba’s capital. The community lies along the western shore of Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba’s largest lake, and is part of the province’s Interlake Region. The municipality includes the growing community of Riverton, and surrounds the Town of Arborg. We hope that you find the information provided here interesting and useful. If you are not currently a resident of Bifrost-Riverton, we hope that you will visit us soon to see what we have to offer to tourists, residents and businesses.


Before the process of fully changing over to the new municipal name begins, Council wants to gauge public opinion on the matter. To represent our community moving forward, should we keep the current merged name or come up with something entirely new?
Attached please find a short (one question) survey regarding this matter. Completed surveys will be collected in drop boxes at two locations; the lobby of the Satellite Office, and the lobby of the Main Office. We will be gathering input until the beginning of January.
