Treherne is an unincorporated urban community in the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne within the Canadian province of Manitoba that held town status prior to January 1, 2015. It is located halfway between Winnipeg and Brandon on Provincial Highway 2. Primarily a farming community, Treherne has a population of around 700 people, and has two schools (Treherne Elementary School and Treherne Collegiate Institute) and a hospital.

Recently, a brand new daycare facility was opened in the community, and in 2006 Treherne proudly opened the Treherne Aquatic Centre next to a top-rated campground facility.

Treherne hosts the annual "Run for the Hills" marathon each fall with the course winding through the Tiger Hills. A popular tourist attraction in Treherne consists of a glass bottle house, chapel, wishing well, and outhouse, built by local residents Bob Cain and Fred Harp. Treherne also has a museum, which exhibits an extensive antique gun collection and a mini indoor village.
