Morden is a city located in the Pembina Valley region of southern Manitoba, Canada near the United States border. It is about 11km west of the neighbouring city of Winkler. Morden, which is surrounded by the Rural Municipality of Stanley, is the second largest city in Canada's Pembina Valley region. The city is located south of the Winnipeg Capital Region. The communities of Morden and Winkler are often referred to as Manitoba's Twin Cities, due to their extremely close proximity, shared services, and economic ties. According to Statistics Canada, the city had a population of 8,668 in 2016.HistoryMorden was founded in 1882, when the Canadian Pacific Railway built a railroad line crossing the Dead Horse Creek—originally called Le Cheval Mort by the French fur traders—at a place then known as Cheval. This spot became a popular resting place as it was ideal to provide water for drinking and locomotives. The settlement was renamed to Morden, after Alvey Morden, on whose family's land the community was established. Morden was incorporated as a municipality on January 1, 1882. The Manitoba government granted Morden town status in 1903 and later city status in 2012.
