Rural Municipality of Headingley
Headingley is a rural municipality in Manitoba, Canada. It is located directly west of Winnipeg and had a population of 3,215 people at the 2011 census. The Trans-Canada Highway and the Assiniboine River run through the municipality. The portion located on the south bank of the Assiniboine is also known as South Headingley. The town takes its name from the suburb of Headingley in the City of Leeds in West Yorkshire, England.
From 1972 until 1993, Headingley was part of the City of Winnipeg. It seceded from the larger city in 1993 after extensive complaints that the local needs of the mostly rural community were not being met as part of a large urban city. As a result of the breakup, it is the only municipality besides Winnipeg in Statistics Canada's Manitoba Census Division No. 11.
