Setting Lake Cottage Owners Association

TheSetting Lake Cottage Owners Associationwas formed on April 19, 1986 to unite the cottage owners at SettingLake as one entity.The Association acts on its own behalf as an extension of the Department of Northern Affairs to:

• provide for the basic needs of the cottage owners,

• to be a contact for other agencies such as RCMP, Manitoba Hydro, MTS, etc. and

• to represent the cottage owners as a single voice in matters of interest or concern to the membership.


We're a Model Association

The Setting Lake Cottage Owners Association is viewed by government officials as one of the better models of associations in the province. Officials point to a number of strengths the SLCOA exhibits including:

• Broad based representation and communication among cottagers

• Identifiable and stable executive structure

• Fiscal stability

• Planning

Association Objectives

• Administrate available funds to achieve the results desired, ensure sufficient funds are available to meet the needs of the Association and to be accountable to the cottage owners for the disposition of funds.

• Ensure necessary services are provided to meet the basic needs of cottage owners at the most reasonable cost (roads, dump, fire protection, etc.)

• Provide the necessary interface between the cottage owners and the Government and the private sector to deal with issues that concern and/or affect cottage owners.

• Ensure that future requirements for expanded or new services are properly evaluated and planned so that implementation can be properly financed and take place when required to meet regulations and/or Association needs.
