Public Notice Update - COVID 19


The Rural Municipality of Roland understands there is much concern regarding COVID-19 and is relying on the guidance of Manitoba Government, healthcare professionals and our Municipal Emergency Coordinator to ensure local services are maintained.

To support social distancing measures, the RM of Roland has announced the following facilities will be closed to the public effective immediately:

Roland Fire Hall

Roland Public Works Shop

Roland Memorial Hall (and municipal office)

Roland Rink


At this point the Waste Transfer Station and Recycling Depot will remain open at their regular hours.


Based on the latest information available, we are implementing the following:

·         Suspending all non-essential work where our employees are required to enter an occupied residence

·         Encourage phone and email communication / reduce face-to-face and confined space contact, handshakes, etc.

·         Disinfect frequently used surfaces e.g. pens, door handles, counters and use hand sanitizer and wipes

·         Encourage employees who are unwell or sick to stay home from work

·         Provide for municipal employee vacancies as needed to attend to dependent family members

The Rural Municipality of Roland will be continually evaluating these measures and will keep the community up to date accordingly.

The Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living website is a great resource to find factual, clear information regarding COVID-19, and what you need to know in Manitoba.

Dog Walking 101

Dog Walking 101

  • Always walk your dog on the leash, it is for their protection, as much as yours.
  • Take a supply of doggie bags with you when you walk, or better yet, put a doggie bag dispenser on your leash, then you will never be caught unprepared.  Doggie bags are available at your local pet or dollar store, you can even choose bio-degradable or scented bags!

How to use a doggie bag

  • Place your hand inside the bag, like you are putting on a glove.
  • Make a claw-like circle with your fingers and then get as far under the "poo-pile" as possible before lifting up.
  • As you are picking up the "treasure" with one hand, pull the top edge of the bag down and round with the other hand.
  • The poo is contained, just tie a knot and dispose of the bag in your trash bin when you get home.

It works great,
no messy fingers or tools to clean

Your Neighbors will love you!

Roland Roots

Most likely the best resource you will ever find for our area.   Worthy of praise, and Many Thanks to the individuals that work endlessly on this project.  

The Fairview, Bethel and Myrtle cemeteries, final resting places for many of the original settlers of the Roland area.   "The burial records found on this website are not limited to tombstone inscriptions, they reflect the information available from the records of each cemetery. It is acknowledged that despite every effort some burials may never be identified. A database has been included identifying wherever possible the names of the parents of the deceased and, if applicable, any spouse or children. Common ancestors are also included so relationships between those interred may be traced."
