Vermillion Growers gets boost


Vermillion Growers has received some provincial support for its commercial greenhouse project in Dauphin.
During a visit to Dauphin Friday, Economic Development and Training Minister Ralph Eichler announced the development will receive a rebate of up to $4.2 million over a maximum of 20 years through the Manitoba Works Capital Incentive (MWCI).
The province unveiled the MWCI in May 2020 as a new approach to tax-increment financing that rebates the incremental education property taxes generated by a project for up to 20 years. Approved projects receive a tax rebate based on the difference between pre-development property tax revenue and the increased amount generated by the completed project. The program aims to encourage significant new business investment or existing business expansion, noted Eichler.
