Presidents Message

The goal for Gimli’s Chamber of Commerce is to support local businesses, industry and other organizations that have an economic impact in the RM of Gimli. We will strive to foster economic growth that will generate a stronger business sector and community at large, making Gimli an end destination for business and leisure.

The Chamber of Commerce is currently an all-volunteer organization. We will do what we can to provide an environment that encourages the creation, sustainability and profitability of not only existing, but new businesses as well.  Through our partnership with the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce we will provide networking, training opportunities and access to special business benefits to our members. We will do our utmost to keep our Chamber members informed about community developments that might directly impact local businesses and provide applicable feedback to Gimli’s municipal government as the voice of business in Gimli.

Gimli Chamber of Commerce President
