Summer Chamber Tour: Morris and District Chamber of Commerce

Jul 24, 2023 | Chamber Spotlights

It’s been a long-standing Manitoba Chambers of Commerce tradition to take advantage of our travel- friendly summer months as time to get out past the Perimeter Highway and visit local chambers of commerce around the province.

These summer daytrips trips provide MCC President & CEO Chuck Davidson (and accompanying team members!) the opportunity to sit down face to face, with local chamber leaders to discuss successes, opportunities, and challenges in their communities. In addition to meeting chamber staff and board members, the team often meets with local chamber member businesses, touring organizations, operations, and facilities – an excellent way to learn about all the wonderful business activity happening across the province!

Last week we kicked off this summer’s line up of chamber tours with an afternoon in St. Jean Baptiste and Morris.

Our first stop was Jablonski Electric, Plumbing & Heating Ltd. Since 2012, Jablonski’s has been serving the people of St. Jean Baptiste and the surrounding area and was recently named one of Canada’s Top Growing Companies 2022. The forth annual business report selected and ranked 430 businesses that have managed to grow through some of the most difficult years on record. Congratulations Jablonski!

Need to charge your electric vehicle? Bigway Foods in Morris is the place to stop.  With six Tesla stations and four EV charging stations on their lot, travelers driving to the United States, or returning to Manitoba, can recharge their vehicle, pick up a few groceries, grab a coffee and be on their way.

The Morris Industrial park is ready for your business. If you are looking to expand into the Morris area the access to road (HWY 75) and rail (CN and CP) are unparalleled. Community development is also top of mind as the town continues to develop Willow Park, a 13,000 square feet playground area with structures for children ages two to 12. Centrally located, the play area is at the heart of a growing multi-use housing development on the east side of town.

The Morris Multiplex serves the community and as the name implies, has many uses. It is comprised of a convention centre, is home to the 125 year-old Morris Curling Club, the Morris Arena, the Morris Wellness Centre, and PhysiGO, a mobile physiotherapy centre. Accommodating 20 people or 1500 people, the Multiplex is available for trade shows, meetings and conferences, concerts and fundraisers.

Next door to the multiplex, our day ended with a tour of the Manitoba Stampede grounds as it prepared for its annual event. Thank you for hosting us Morris and District Chamber of Commerce!
