Grab the March 30th Dauphin Herald or April 2nd Parkland Shopper! We've launched a new campaign that will feature inspiring stories of some Chamber Members from across the region. These businesses took on the challenge of the pandemic and made a pivot in order to continue serving the community.

“So instead of thinking about how my sales are going to suffer, I decided we're going to take a break. Sales might be down, but it'll be fine. I was more concerned about how my staff was feeling and how they were doing than anything.” Steinbachs - Nutters Everyday Naturals

Watch for them each week in the Dauphin Herald and Parkland Shopper! Full stories will be shared on our website. 


Catch part one (a video highlight) of this two-part connection with Mazier on our Facebook page on Monday, April 5th.

This event is will have Dan speaking on a number of areas like COVID, small business reliefs, tourism, broadband/ cellular connection and more. Guests will have the chance to ask Dan directly their questions. 

We'll start off with 15 minutes of networking and then get into Dan's session. This event will be held on Gather (a zoom like video platform that allows the participant to move a character around a room in order to speak with others) 

We are presenting the opportunity to "sit down" with our MP for Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa, Dan Mazier to get everyone's day started! A lot is happening or in the works for the region. Now you have the chance to ask Dan directly about the progress of projects or what is happening at the federal government level. In partnership with Swan Valley Chamber of Commerce, Neepawa Chamber of Commerce, Roblin & District Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Chamber of Commerce Group Insurance Plan.

Sponsored by Chamber Group Insurance Plan and City of Dauphin
