The Rural Municipality of Ellice-Archie is located in the western section of the province, at the Manitoba/Saskatchewan border and approximately 85 miles north of the US border. The small villages of McAuley and St. Lazare are the hubs of the RM. The major urban centres located within proximity to the municipality are: Brandon (100 km to the southeast), Portage la Prairie (200 km to the southeast) and Winnipeg (300 km to the southeast).
The majority of the land in the municipality abounds in natural resources and offers a wide variety of possibilities in the areas of recreation, tourism, ecotourism as well as light industry. These areas of interest are consistently found among the fastest growing sectors of the Canadian economy and also help to preserve local nature and heritage. They can also have a positive impact on existing industries and create interesting spin-off opportunities for the region.
