Dauphin is a first-class community that thrives on its rich history and embraces the opportunities of the future – a place where people choose to live, work, invest and visit.

Seek, encourage and facilitate wealth generating opportunities for the Dauphin community by providing leadership and direction necessary for sustainable business and community growth.

We developed a multi-year strategic plan that would re-define the community’s economic future. The process involved broadly based community consultation and assisted in defining six strategic pillars of economic development and priorities to move forward.

The Strategic Priorities are:

  1. Business Development
  2. Tourism & Promotion
  3. Community Readiness
  4. Downtown Renewal
  5. Population Growth
  6. Partnerships

As community environments are subject to change over time, continuous reviews are conducted by the Economic Development Committee to assess progress and review the priority areas and activities. Overall, the results from the community consultation process identified that the six priority areas are still relevant and that current initiatives address ongoing community needs.
