While the name Sunrise Corner may be relatively new, this region has a long history as an incredible place to live, work, play, visit, invest and explore.
Sunrise Corner is the geographic area covered by the Rural Municipalities of Piney and Stuartburn in Manitoba’s southeast corner – the place where the sun first rises in our beautiful province and nature shines. #natureshinesmb
Sunrise Corner is also the economic development office that was formed through a partnership of the two municipalities – a forward-thinking initiative to build awareness of our region where, truly, untapped opportunity shines. #opportunityshinesmb
It all started with Sunrise Corner Tourism in 2016 encouraging visitors to discover our beautiful corner of Manitoba. In 2019, the councils of both RMs realized the need to expand the focus so formed the Piney Stuartburn Economic Development District, the guiding force behind Sunrise Corner. This progressive step resulted in the addition of a full-time economic development manager to spearhead development from several perspectives.
In addition to tourism, Sunrise Corner is now focused on building a sustainable regional approach: helping new businesses launch and existing businesses expand, growing jobs through our abundant natural resources and agricultural sector, and working towards solutions for issues like housing options for seniors and families, and accommodations for tourists and temporary workers.
