Foreword Message from Reeve Schinkel:

It is my pleasure, on behalf the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet Council, to present the 2023-2026 Municipal Strategic Plan. This plan is a living document and a blueprint for what we intend to achieve in service to our community in the coming years. 

The Strategic Plan represents the shared vision our Council and Administration have for the future of our municipality. This plan focuses on the exploration of new and innovative projects, programs, and methods of service delivery to enhance the quality of life for our region’s ratepayers and visitors. Additionally, this plan addresses the importance of continuously improving our high quality of public services, while maintaining and improving fiscal accountability. 

The strategic plan for the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet is the result of countless hours of consultation, and the thoughtful exchange of ideas between members of council and municipal staff. A special thanks to Community Futures Winnipeg River for their assistance and guidance through this important process and assisting the Rural Municipality of Lac Du Bonnet in setting the course for the future. 

This is an exciting time to “Live Lac du Bonnet”
