Walsh, Nelson and Pembina Counties are teaming with organizations and business partners from across our communities on a 6-month planning process. We need your feedback to help uncover our authentic brand and develop an innovative and measurable talent attraction marketing strategy for the region.
Community Engagement Survey
What brought you to the region? What do you love about where you live? What feelings does your community invoke? What would you like to see change? We want to hear from you!
Please take the following community engagement survey. It will take about 5-10 minutes to complete, and all responses will remain anonymous.

This marketing and strategy development project will help us attract people, visitors and workforce to our region by highlighting the amenities, employment opportunities, and quality of life that we all enjoy every day here. Anticipated outcomes include development of a regional brand, a talent attraction website for use by area businesses and organizations, a coordinated social media campaign, and other strategies that will help us market the region.
Additional Feedback Opportunities
There will be multiple in-person community engagement opportunities around the region in the coming months. While dates and locations are still being finalized, anyone interested in participating can reach out to Stacie Sevigny at the Red River Regional Council at Stacie@RedRiverRC.com or 701-352-3550.
