Working closely with local economic groups from The Pas, the RM of Kelsey and the Opaskwayak Cree Nation, we envision even stronger partnerships between our communities to assist economic growth for our area.
Here is a select listing of ongoing projects.
Smart Cities Challenge
After submitting an application to the Smart Cities Challenge, the Tri-Council found out June 1, 2018 that we are top 20 in Canada, the only finalist from Manitoba, and the only Tri-Community to submit an application together. The Tri-Council received a $250,000.00 grant towards writing the business plan. You can view the proposal and video submission here.

With partnerships such as the Destination Marketing Group, Travel Manitoba, and all major regional groups, we continue to partner and work towards a stronger tourism sector. We currently are developing a new regional brochure for visitors and investors.
North Forge Initiative
North Forge Technology Exchange is an innovation-based economic development agency and a powerhouse community to fuel Manitoba’s innovation economy through collaboration and access to our shared resources.
OCN Aerospace Initiative
(Formerly CAHRD North Initiative)
Originally based out of Winnipeg, CAHRD North looks to provide Northerners a future of increased economic prosperity and self-sufficiency. By partnering with UCN The Pas, this has huge potential for our entire area.
