The Municipality of West Nipissing has enjoyed more than 18 years as an amalgamated municipality. Cache Bay, Crystal Falls, Desaulniers, Field, Kipling, Lavigne, North Monetville, River Valley, Sturgeon Falls, Verner and the 17 ½ unincorporated townships came together in 1999 to form the vibrant, growing and prosperous municipality of West Nipissing. Each community lends its own strengths and charms to the overall small town appeal for which West Nipissing is so well known. Joie de vivre is the embodiment of who we are and how we live.

West Nipissing has tremendous natural and human resources. Economic and investment opportunities abound. Our community benefits from our English, French and Anishinabek heritage and people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds living in rural and urban locations. We have a diverse mix of agriculture, light industry, small manufacturing, tourism, health services and government services that all contribute to a robust local economy. Joie de vivre is about living life to its fullest. Every one of us who calls West Nipissing home knows that our Joie de vivre is a driving force in our desire to continue building our wonderful municipality. The best way to manifest Joie de vivre is to experience it, and so I am asking you to invite friends and family home for a visit so they can recharge their Joie de vivre. I am asking you to each help in telling the story of West Nipissing and to convey to others how fortunate we are to enjoy such a fabulous quality of life.
