The Eastern Interlake Planning District (EIPD) was formed on March 29, 1980.  
We provide planning services, such as Building/Development Permits, Occupancy Permits, Variance and Conditional Use applications, etc. to be in compliance with the local Zoning and Building By-laws, for the following four municipalities:

  • RM of Gimli 
  • Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton
  • Town of Arborg
  • Town of Winnipeg Beach

Our office is located in the RM of Gimli at 62 Second Avenue (pictured above).   Our hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  We are closed for all statutory holidays and any other holiday proclaimed by Federal, Provincial or Municipal Government.  Our office has a mandatory shut down at 12 noon on December 24th up to and including January 1st. 

We recommend using our new Cloudpermit system to apply for a permit, however if you prefer to attend our office to apply for a permit, we respectfully request that you arrive by 4:00 p.m. to ensure enough time to complete the process.
