Location of Powerview-Pine Falls in Manitoba

Powerview-Pine Falls is a town in the Canadian province of Manitoba, with a population of 1,314 at the 2011 census, up 1.54% from 1,294 at the 2006 census and down 7.57% from 1,400 during the 2001 census. The town is an amalgamation of the previous town of Powerview 50°33′58″N 96°11′53″W / 50.56611°N 96.19806°W / 50.56611; -96.19806 with the previously unincorporated area of Pine Falls 50°33′59″N 96°13′03″W / 50.56639°N 96.21750°W / 50.56639; -96.21750, to its west. The town borders the Rural Municipality of Alexander and the Sagkeeng First Nation Indian reserve. The town was created as a paper mill town in the mid 1920s as Manitoba Pulp and Paper Company. The company was sold to Abitibi Paper Company and became Pine Falls Paper Group in 1995 after employee buyout and finally sold to Tembec in 1998.[1] In 2009, the Tembec shutdown the mill for good and the site demolished by 2012[2] but mill's footprint next to Slasher Bay is still visible.

Transportation[edit]

The mine was served by Canadian National Railway since 1924 and ended after the mill closed.

Manitoba Provincial Roads 11 and 304 are the major roads connecting Powerview with other nearby communities.

Employment[edit]

With the closure of the paper mill, Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority Pine Falls Hospital (Pine Falls Health Complex) is the community's largest employer.
