Municipality of Emerson-Franklin

Emerson-Franklin, Manitoba

 

Overview:

R+W has been key in formalizing the Emerson-Franklin Community Development Corporation (CDC) to drive local economic development objectives. The CDC has been a champion for advancing a Port Authority and Trade Corridor concept, while finding innovative ways to build infrastructure capacity and attract sustainable growth to the Municipality.

Challenges:

The challenge to realizing economic development in rural communities is the process of finding solutions that are practical, meaningful and incremental to a larger vision and greater community benefit. Our approach is based on building stakeholder buy-in and nourishing lighter, quicker and cheaper strategies.
