Next week we will be launching 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.

Watch for them in the upcoming issues of the Dauphin Herald and Parkland Shopper! 

First Data provides simple, affordable, and transparent pricing. If they cannot beat your current processing fees, you will earn a $1,000 Visa® gift card1.  This is for members only.

Following feedback from Manitobans, only a limited number of the options proposed late last week will be implemented in the next round of public health orders. The following changes to public health orders go into effect on Friday, March 26 at 12:01 a.m. and will expire on April 15:

• increasing gathering limits at outdoor public places to 25 from 10 people;
• increasing gathering limits at weddings and funerals to 25 from 10 people;
• maintaining the capacity limits for retail stores at 50 percent, but expanding the in-store limits to a 500-person capacity, whichever is lower, with other public health measures still in effect; and
• relaxing rules for drive-in events to allow people to leave their vehicles while still observing public health measures

Note: Changes to indoor or outdoor gathering sizes at personal residences or in restaurants will not be introduced, as prolonged contact has a higher risk of transmitting the virus.

Additional changes may be considered after spring break, Passover and Easter if data supports making further reopening efforts.
If you need anything always feel free to reach out to me at the office or if its COVID related, you can also consult

We're thrilled to announce that Chicken Chef Ste. Rose, Syrnyks HD Serivce, and Fudd's Corner Store are our newest members to join the network! 

We highly recommend grabbing a meal or two this weekend at Chicken Chef in Ste. Rose. Perhaps grab an ice cream or other treat since it will be so nice out at Fudd's Corner Store as well. And next time you need any work done on your vehicle or a piece of machinery, give Matt and his team a try at Syrnyks HD Service.

Your Chamber is the LEAST EXPENSIVE and MOST EFFECTIVE "employee" your company can have.



Using a program like Trello or Asana can help keep you and your team organized. First step, create a full list of everything you need to do or get done. "Brain Dumping" it all can help take the pressure off of trying to remember it all. Then you can work from that to categorize and tackle.
