North Whiteshell Fire Department Presentation Summary

Posted on: November 23, 2020  |  

On Monday, November 9, 2020, the North Whiteshell Volunteer Fire (NWFD) Department planning committee made a presentation to the cottagers of the North Whiteshell area.  This presentation outlined efforts to date, and plans to move forward to establish a fire department in the North Whiteshell area of the Whiteshell Provincial Park.

The Fire Department is not a WCA initiative, however WCA is fulfilling their duty to keep cottagers informed on anything that might affect them.

The following attachments are a copy of the PowerPoint presentation as well as the questions that  were submitted by a number of cottagers that attended the presentation.  The questions have been grouped by topic to facilitate responses.

We want to thank all of those in attendance, and encourage everyone to read through the material as more information will be forthcoming shortly.

Please stay tuned for further developments on this initiative.

Please note that WCA has not taken a position on the NWFD.  We are leaving it to cottagers themselves to judge the merits (or lack of same) of the NWFD proposal.

Caddy Air Field – Manitoba Historical SocietyDuring the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Canadian federal government employed able-bodied, unemployed men to build public infrastructure. In return for their labour, each man was provided with food, shelter, and 20 cents per day. In Manitoba, three construction gangs worked in the Whiteshell Forest Reserve (today’s Whiteshell Provincial Park) to build roads to enable the development of tourism in this part of the province. Between Fall 1933 and Spring 1934, one hundred men from the Caddy Lake Relief Camp, under the supervision of Col. Logie Armstrong from the Department of National Defense, built an emergency airfield at this site about 1.5 miles west of the Ontario border. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning, we found a small water craft (paddle boat) adrift in Big Whiteshell Lake. It was found floating in the middle of the lake no where near a cabin. I was wondering if you could post something for me? If they can identify what it is then we will know it is going to the rightful owner. They can message me to identify what it is and for pick up information. Or call me at 1 (204) 348-3294. ... See MoreSee Less
