Bon Homme, a Hutterite Bruderhof five miles (eight km) southwest of Benard, Manitoba, founded in 1918 by Preacher Joseph Waldner and 14 families from the Bon Homme Bruderhof near Tabor, South Dakota. The move to Canada was made because Canada promised freedom from military service to conscientious objectors. Joseph Waldner died in 1934. In 1929 Michael Waldner and in 1934 Joseph Wollmann were chosen to the ministry. In 1947 this colony had a total of 180 souls, 72 being baptized members.

In 2017 Bon Homme Colony was a Schmiedeleut Group 2 colony.

Daughter colonies of Bon Homme Colony include: Cascade Hutterite Colony (MacGregor, Manitoba); Glendale Hutterite Colony (Frankfort, South Dakota); Grand Hutterite Colony (Oakville, Manitoba); Newdale Hutterite Colony (Brandon, Manitoba); and Waldheim Hutterite Colony (Elie, Manitoba).
