Boissevain

Boissevain Branch

Boissevain is in the Rural Municipality of Boissevain-Morton near the U.S./Canada border in southern Manitoba, approximately 80 kilometres south of Brandon.

It is notable for its proximity to the International Peace Garden and Turtle Mountain Provincial Park.

The community formerly hosted the International Turtle Derby and is the home of “Tommy the Turtle,” a 28-foot tall, 10,000 pound western painted turtle that serves as an icon for the community.

The site of the town of Boissevain was decided by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885 and is named after Adolphe Boissevain, who helped finance the CPR.

CJRB (1220 AM), a radio station owned by Golden West Media, and a weekly newspaper called The Boissevain Recorder serve the community.

Sunrise Credit Union is proud to have served the Boissevain area since 1941, first as Wassewa Credit Union, then later as Boissevain Credit Union. In 1989, Boissevain Credit Union amalgamated with Turtle Mountain Credit Union. It joined Sunrise Credit Union on October 1, 2008, through the strategic merger of five credit unions, including Turtle Mountain Credit Union.
