At their meeting Tuesday night Flin Flon City Council agreed to contract with Travel Manitoba to develop a brand to promote our community and region with assistance from a top advertising agency. Travel Manitoba has initiated a place branding program as a means of growing tourism through increased visitation to distinct destinations in Manitoba. The program begins with a facilitated stakeholder session in the community with Probe Research conducting the session and McKim Communications attending and presenting a proposed brand within 4 weeks. Council agreed to assemble investors and raise a minimum of 10 thousand dollars for brand implementation.
Councilor Karen MacKinnon announced the city launched an official tourism Facebook page on Friday titled Flin Flon Rocks to promote what you will find when you come to Flin Flon. Councilor Guy Rideout also reminded residents with winter coming on its time to get stored vehicles and trailers off the streets in order not to interfere with snow removal and the Fire Chief reported four calls in October.
