To our valued customers and citizens,

In response to the recommendations provided by government health officials, the RM of Portage will be proactively making some changes to how we serve our citizens, while balancing the health and safety of our employees and the public.  These changes will be temporary, and we will return to business as usual as soon as it is determined safe to do so.  There is no confirmation of COVID-19 in our office, but we are doing our part to minimize its impact on our health care system and in our community.

Effective Tuesday, March 24th, 2020 at 4:30 pm the Rural Municipality of Portage la Prairie will be closed to the public. These closures include the Municipal Office, Public Works Shop and Utility Operations. 

We encourage all members of the public to visit https://www.gov.mb.ca/health/coronavirus/index.html, which is being updated daily by the Province of Manitoba with information on its response. Health-related questions or concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus) can also be directed to Health Links – Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257.
