The Rural Municipality of Woodworth is located in southwestern Manitoba, and is only 45 minutes west of Manitoba's second largest city, Brandon. Woodworth is ideally located close to the towns of Virden, Rivers, Oak Lake and the village of Hamiota. This connection of urban areas and numerous surrounding municipalities creates a strong trading area. Woodworth is located three hours from both Winnipeg and Regina, giving it an excellent location for major Canadian markets.
The economic picture in Woodworth is excellent. The municipality has recently attracted several new industries, as a result of the community's aggressive approach and support for potential investors.
