Spot Witnesses Growth Across Municipality –


The mayor of Taché says that construction activities continue non-stop in his municipality.

From January 1 to June 30 of this year, the municipality issued 109 permits against 137 during the same period a year ago. However, the total project cost for 2022 is $31.3 million, well ahead of the $21.5 million for the same period in 2021. Justin Bohemier explains why.

“This year, we’re definitely seeing an increase in multifamily,” Bohemier notes.

So far in 2022, there have been 10 permits for multi-family dwellings, compared to four in 2021.

By comparison, 2021 had 44 single-family dwellings, compared to 34 in 2022.

Bohemier says multi-family housing is largely increasing in Landmark and Lorette, although there is ongoing construction in Taché. He notes that they are also seeing growth in the rural area, including Ste. Genevieve and Linden.

According to Bohemier, all of the rural municipalities surrounding Winnipeg seem to be experiencing growth right now.

“Many people see the interest of moving to our municipality,” he notes. “And they love the country life, they love the feeling it gives and you know what, that’s kind of what people want these days.”

But, says Bohemier, the Rural Municipality of Taché wants to make sure growth happens at a reasonable speed.

“We certainly don’t want to be too aggressive, so we want to see those numbers in a way that we can manage them properly,” he says. “We don’t want to make developments that will inconvenience or harm other residents. We want to be able to include them in our MR and be able to deal with them properly.”
