We Need your Support!

Posted on: March 6, 2015  |  

The Whiteshell Cottagers Association is committed to defend the interests of all Whiteshell Cottage Owners, and is making a concerted effort to reduce the heavy financial burden being created by the government’s planned park fee and lease rate increases. To achieve our objectives, we very much want to ensure full cottager participation in the WCA. To reach our goal of greater than 90% participation, we are asking that you PLEASE RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP NOW, if you haven’t already done so; or if you are not a current member, we are urging you to PLEASE JOIN NOW. In order to continue our fight, we must have a vigorous Association. For the upcoming year we are planning to enhance a number of our activities:

·        improve our communication tools, especially our web site and ECHO

·        more effective administration; with our new administrator and a more responsive office

·        better communication between Lake Directors and their cottage constituents to make sure we are in tune with cottagers’ views

·        more substantial engagement with Parks in such areas as Lake Level Management, Road Maintenance, Waste Management so that we can provide useful and timely feedback to Parks on the quality and quantity of services provided.

To achieve these goals, a modest increase in cottager membership fees is necessary. Effective January 1, 2015, the annual membership has been raised from $25.00 to $35.00.  Click here to register

    I can afford the $35 but I may not join. I do not like the wca implementing a 40% increase in dues at this time when I am skeptical at this time of any possible positive progress in dealing with the government. So far there has been no positive feedback ( or no feedback) with regard to negotiations. I would rather pay the $35 if I knew the wca coffers were near depletion or I knew positive progress with regards to negotiation was being made.

    I think my thoughts probably represent those of a lot of cottagers and that is why membership renewal is lagging.

    Better show us something positive before asking for such a large increase. Then I am sure the renewals will come flowing in.

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
