Hello to the residents and visitors in the Municipality of Russell Binscarth!


I hope that you have enjoyed welcoming in our new year, 2023!  It is hard to believe that we are already looking forward to February.

The start of a new year is a perfect opportunity for each of us to reflect on our own personal goals that we wish to improve upon, whether those be to exercise more, watch our diet, become involved in a community organization, be mindful of our finances, travel, enjoy spending more time with family and friends – our “new year’s resolutions” are only limited to our imagination and then the willpower to carry through.


The Municipality of Russell Binscarth also has a “new year’s” list of items that we are working towards, for the benefit of everyone who lives, works or visits here:    re-designing our communications platforms, re-energizing the Asessippi Parkland Tourism group, completing the repairs on the Russell Multiplex,  upgrades to the audiovisual systems at the George P. Buleziuk Center, working with the provincial government on the  Main Street paving project, supporting events organized by the Chamber of Commerce and sports groups, and many more worthwhile projects planned for  the year.  The Council and staff are committed to making our municipality a great place to be proud of!


I encourage everyone to enjoy winter activities here in the municipality as well as those offered by our neighboring communities!  The newly-built Binscarth toboggan slide is a great venue to enjoy a winter day, or grab a crazy-carpet and take a slide down Tower Hill .   Also try out  the Moose Lake cross-country ski trail on the edge of Riding Mountain National Park,  downhill skiing and tubing at the Asessippi Winter Park,  ice fishing at Lake of the Prairies, hockey and figure skating events at the Russell Multiplex, grab a set of snowshoes from the Recreation Office and check out the walking path, or try the  groomed snowmobile trails offered by Snoman (just be sure you have the permit to ride their trail)!  Our region is a wonderful part of the province to stay and play during the winter!


I continue to be out and about the municipality or in the Office at the Civic Center for “Mondays with the Mayor”.  Please feel free to meet up with me throughout the day and have a chat!


With my best wishes for a great February!

Mayor Judy Snitynsky
