There is a current incentive that HEDC is offering to individuals that build or move a new home in the north subdivision; contact the office for more information. These lots are on the edge of town so one gets the best of both worlds.
If you have questions about available commercial, industrial or residential lots in Hamiota then please contact Nancy Smith: email@example.com, 204-764-3050 ext. 107 or 75 Maple Ave.

Staying busy in Hamiota is easy, we are a VERY active and athletic community with top notch facilities, art with a very active arts building, dance for all ages, quilting, yoga studio and fitness gym, whole body wellness centre – massage, chiropractic services, physio etc., library, and trails for hiking, cross country skiing, snow mobiles, and snowshoeing. One could go on forever because there is a never ending list of things to do.
HEDC hosted a community brainstorming evening on Wednesday, March 13 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. with over 50 people in attendance sharing their ideas to make Hamiota move forward in a positive direction.
HEDC hosted the Hamiota Trade Show In 2018 & 2019 in April. Booths were setup in our exceptional sports complex. The Grad Class used this as an opportunity to raise funds by having lunch available. The silver collection at the door brought in $831.30 which HEDC donated to the Hamiota Community Foundation. Many visitors came through the doors and viewed the booths that were set up through the arena. The booths looked amazing and a very positive event for the community.
HEDC had the electronic sign erected in August, 2018 on the corner of Highway 21 and Maple Ave. If there is an event you’d like up on the sign, please notify Nancy firstname.lastname@example.org.
The EDO attends meetings: education stakeholders, health stakeholders, Hamiota Chamber of Commerce (monthly) and Tourism Westman quarterly throughout the year. EDO is part time and generally works 8:30-12:30 Monday, Tuesday and 8:30-4:30 Wednesday and Thursday.
