Reversion of an Organized Hamlet to a Hamlet

Reversion is the process of changing the status of an organized hamlet to that of a hamlet.

Section 52 of The Municipalities Act requires the council of a rural municipality (RM) in which an organized hamlet (OH) is located request the Minister order the reversion of an organized hamlet to hamlet status if no active hamlet board has existed for the preceding two years.

Alternatively, should an OH no longer desire to be established as an OH, an application should be made to its RM to request that its status be reverted.


It is recommended that a public meeting be held to discuss the status change proposal. All residents affected by the reversion should be invited to attend to discuss the proposal.

Once it has been decided that a reversion is desired, the RM should submit the following information to the Ministry of Government Relations:

  1. a certified copy of a resolution of council requesting the status change;
  2. if applicable, a motion from the OH board requesting the status change; and
  3. an outline of the public consultation regarding the request.

If the Minister is of the opinion that the OH should be reverted, the Minister will issue an order reverting the OH to a hamlet. The hamlet will no longer collect the OH grant or the previously negotiated portion of the municipal taxes.
