In compliance with Bill 33, the Rural Municipality and the Town of Deloraine have amalgamated to form the Rural Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester.

The term of office for the 2014 will commence January 1, 2015, although candidates will be an interim body which will be reviewing policy matters, organizational structure etc. The present Council(s) will continue to function independently, and take care of routine business matters of their respective separate municipalities from the day after election until the new Council takes office in 2015. The current ward system of the Rural Municipality will remain the same (boundaries) and the former Town of Deloraine will become Ward 5 (see attached map link). One Council member will be elected from each of the rural wards, and 4 Council members will be elected at large from the urban ward. One head of Council will be elected at large.
