The Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes became an unincorporated village administered by a council committee, or Townboard, of the RM of Lorne and the RM of South Norfolk in 1934. The council committee would evolve into the council of the non-incorporated village between 1946 and 1962. On January 1, 1963 the Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes became an incorporated entity independent of the RM of Lorne and the RM of South Norfolk.
In December 2012, the Province of Manitoba made an announcement requiring that municipalities with fewer than 1000 population be amalgamated with neighbouring municipalities. As of January 1, 2015, the incorporated Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes was amalgamated with RM of Lorne and the Village of Somerset. The Village of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes is now Ward 6 of the Municipality of Lorne and is represented by one councillor and its Local Urban District (LUD) committee members.
The LUD committee meets on the last Monday of each month unless otherwise noted.
- Denis Bibault, Municipality of Lorne council member
