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.

Centre Counselor Laurie Sealey and Youth Counselor Keely Patterson told the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce the Women’s Resource Centre’s mission statement includes providing service that will protect and empower women and youth without discrimination including support, interim housing, referral information and counseling. Patterson said to do this among other services she works with youth as youth are our future, operate a Safe Haven which is immediate housing for women and children in crisis and work with other community and government organizations to ensure needed services are available.
The Flin Flin and District Chamber of Commerce heard about plans being developed by the Main Street Revitalization Task Force Tuesday. The Committee’s Kory Eastman explained they are a volunteer group aiming to develop a healthy, safe and viable Main Street noting they are accessing an approach that was followed by Maple Creek Saskatchewan that resulted in 20 new businesses, 50 new jobs and increased sales and tourist visits. He said there are the Main Street four points which deal with having a community organization, promotion, design and heritage of Main Street and economic restructuring that must occur through this process. He added he wouldn’t go into each of the points as that is the work of the Task Force and later the committee but just to let you know there is a structure, a format, something they are following and they want to learn from communities that have had success in the past.
