The area of Hanover was part of the traditional lands of the Anishinabe, Ojibway speaking natives of the area In the summer of 1871 the federal government signed treaties with these people putting them on reserves like the Roseau River Anishinabe First Nation to the south and the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation to the north

From these lands the Manitoba government set aside the East Reserve of which was slightly smaller than what is now the RM of Hanover The East Reserve was set aside for the new German speaking Mennonites immigrants from Russia coming to the province In 1880 the province created the RM of Hespeler in honour of William Hespeler, who had brought many of the Mennonite immigrants to the area The RM of Hanover was created on May 25, 1881 during the same time when most of the province was reorganizing itself into new rural municipalities In 1881 the East Reserve was divided into 2 municipalities, Hespeler in the north and Hanover in the south In 1890 the two municipalities merged in order to form the single municipality of Hanover

The primary settlers were as mentioned German speaking Mennonites from Russia, French, and Anglo Saxons
