Manitoba Communities: Headingley (Rural Municipality)
This municipality was named by cleric Griffith O. Corbett after his former parish in England, Headingley in Leeds. Formerly part of Winnipeg, the municipality seceded over concerns about municipal tax rates, and legislation to form the new Rural Municipality was proclaimed in May 1992. Its first municipal elections occurred in June 1992.
