Lac Ste. Anne County and the Town of Onoway are working together on an exciting initiative designed to support local enterprise and enhance the region’s many economic development opportunities.
Thanks to vital input from local businesses and community leaders, these municipal partners have developed an economic roadmap that will provide guidance and direction as the economic development strategy gains momentum in the months and years to come.

About the Onoway and Lac Ste. Anne County Partnership
The Onoway and Lac Ste. Anne County Partnership was initiated in 2016 between the Town of Onoway and Lac Ste. Anne County to take advantage of working together to enhance economic development opportunities in the region.
In 2018, the two communities developed a Steering Committee and began the process of building a regional partnership to support business development within the region. The partnership understands that this is a first step, and with direction from the Steering Committee, the partnership foresees adding other municipal partners from within the Lac Ste. Anne region at some point in the future. This Steering Committee is a first step in organizing a regional organization and was intentionally designed as a small, nimble committee to move forward on a larger regional collaboration project. This Steering Committee is a pilot project to investigate the opportunities and challenges of forming a new collaborative entity and will entertain additional partners when the time is right.
The Steering Committee understands that the Economic Development Roadmap is a living document which will be reviewed and revised throughout the next three years.
