Message from the Chairman, Manitoba Provincial Park Cabin Owners Association

Posted on: March 18, 2019  |  

Discussions between MPPCOA and Parks and Protected Spaces regarding park access fees and service fees have evolved around two questions: What do we want this to look like, and how do we get there? It appears that there is a solution that is satisfactory to both sides, MPPCOA and our government. Discussions that took place five years ago were confrontational, with very little common ground. This is no longer the case. The process has been a solid co-operative effort, and of a positive nature.

The process has been supported by all the MPPCOA association members, which represent over 80 percent of the cabin owner in provincial parks in Manitoba. This number is expanding as our membership committee, chaired by Ron Smith, brings more cottage owners associations into our organization.

The MPPCOA Advisory Committee met with Parks and Protected Spaces in March to clarify a few of the details contained in our discussion paper submitted in January. In the next few weeks this document will sent to Parks senior management for executive review and approval of our initial direction in principle. Response to our paper from higher levels of government will allow us to proceed with more detailed discussions.

Spring is in the air, and the MPPCOA Executive is planning our Annual General Meeting for early June. This year it will be hosted by  Nopiming Cottage Owners Association. Last year’s AGM was hosted by the Whiteshell Cottage Owners Association, which again I thank you. It has been the policy of the MPPCOA to have each member association host an annual general meeting. There is no cost to the MPPCOA to hold these meetings.

Dean Amundson,

Chairman, Hecla Historic Village Association

Chairman, Manitoba Provincial Park Cabin Owners Association

Her name is Scarlett and here is a recent picture. She is 18 years old and is a lot thinner than she looks in the picture. She has been missing from our cottage at Penniac Bay since Saturday September 5. If anyone has seen her or has any information please have them call Steve at 204-955-3741.
