Chamber in the News
Our hard-working auction crew at the end of our Annual Radio Auction 2020. You can't tell but we're all smiling under those masks!
Even through all the uncertainty of Covid 19, our local businesses and members were so incredibly generous in donating to our fundraiser - thank you so much!
Thank you to these workers who gave up their Saturday to help! Laurence Gillespie, Betty Kendall, Linda Allen, Tina Oulette, Dave Kendall, Tom Therien, Michelle Reid, Murray Skeavington, & Dianne Russell.
Flin Flon's famous Flinty statue gets a facelift! This summer, our Chamber was able to contribute $20,000 towards the restoration of the Flinty statue - with thanks to grants from the Northern Neighbours Foundation and Canada 150.
Flinty is an important tourist attraction, winning best "roadside attraction" award in a contest hosted by Tourism Manitoba.
Flintabbatey Flonatin was a dime novel character, adopted by prospectors in 1915, giving the city its name. The 7.5 m/24 ft. statue was designed by American cartoonist Al Capp of L'il Abner fame.
Managing Partner for Placemakers in Canada Hazel Borys is in Flin Flon as part of the Arts Council’s Inspiration Series titled Developing a Northern Vision. She told the Chamber of Commerce yesterday economic development is about combining existing assets with new ideas to create new values and as Flin Flon moves to whatever is next consultations within the community are essential to come up with ideas on connections to create a more diversified set of industrial markets here that make the community more resilient over time so we’re not dependent on just one entity that we potentially create more opportunities whether it’s eco-tourism, whether it’s promoting and widening the reach of the rich cultural offering that Flin Flon currently has or whether it’s welcoming some completely new economies that don’t exist here now.
Borys said one step is looking for what place or ideas might provide the inspiration for what’s next in Flin Flon.
Chamber members Becky Cianflone & Kory Eastman welcome the Manitoba Economic Development Tour who were visiting and touring Flin Flon and area October 9th & 10th. Becky & Kory led the group on a tour of Main Street.
Manitoba Chambers of Commerce Economic Development Tours showcase the excellent business opportunities that exist in the northern region of Manitoba.
The two-day delegations were packed with planned events, arranged tours, and meetings with local elected officials and Indigenous leaders enabling delegates to network with decision-makers, view local operations, and consider future business alignments. These tours provide select host communities with a chance to showcase their value proposition, and to uncover and foster potentially lucrative and mutually-beneficial relationships that may not otherwise exist.
