In 2018, Lac Ste. Anne County and the Town of Onoway formed a regional economic development partnership to grow and diversify the businesses in the region.  As part of this Partnership, a Steering Committee consisting of elected officials and staff from the two municipalities was formed.  Their work resulted in a comprehensive economic development roadmap.  

The On Our Way to Endless Opportunity Economic Development Roadmap may be viewed at  

During the creation roadmap, a number of consultations took place with business and community leaders.  

Four key themes emerged from the consultation, and one centered around Rules and Regulations.  We understand that you have recently undertaken a new development in this region, and that your project required you to go through the permitting process.  In order to improve the development process, we have been asked, on behalf of the Partnership to conduct a confidential survey to determine what worked and what improvements you might suggest for this permitting process.  

Your responses will be kept confidential and will be used in advising Councils and Administrations from both communities on improvements that will expedite business development.  

Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete this important survey.  Your feedback is vital to making improvements that support business success.  If you have any questions please contact Larry or Richard at or
