The R.M. of Lac du Bonnet shares borders with the Rural Municipalities of Brokenhead and St. Clements to the west; the Rural Municipalities of Reynolds, Whitemouth and L.G.D. of Pinawa to the south; and the Rural Municipality of Alexander to the north.
Since its incorporation, the economic base of the municipality has become quite diverse. While agriculture remains a staple industry in the western portion of the municipality, hydroelectric generation, mining, harvesting of trees for lumber as well as pulp and paper and tourism has become important components of the local economy.
Over the past 40 years, the R.M. of Lac du Bonnet has seen exceptional growth in land development. Due to its proximity to the Winnipeg and Lee Rivers, lands adjacent to these waterways have become a haven to full-time and seasonal residents. As well, Lac du Bonnet has paralleled other rural municipal jurisdictions outside of Winnipeg with a steady growth in its population as retirees move from larger urban centers to make the pristine beauty of Lac du Bonnet their home. In fact, the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet presently ranks 16th out of 200 Manitoba municipalities in terms of overall assessed value.
We value all members of our community strive to be the most attractive and diverse rural community in Manitoba to live, work, pay and visit.
