The RM of Piney in Manitoba’s southeast corner is a cost-effective and business-friendly municipality in which to do business. And the small-town quality of life here is second to none.

Industry Sectors

Agriculture, forestry and industry have a long and successful track record in SE Manitoba. Our region enjoys a variety of agricultural operations including crops, animals, genetics, greenhouses, and specialty production. Peat moss is harvested just outside our region with a processing plant within our borders. The logging industry gave rise to many of our Sunrise Corner communities and continues today. A number of retail, service and manufacturing businesses support our residents and businesses.


We are well located in Manitoba’s far southeast corner with efficient highway transportation access to both Canadian and US markets.

Development Support

The municipal team is here to encourage the development of new businesses while supporting current businesses and helping them grow.

Sunrise Corner Economic Development

Sunrise Corner is the partnership of the RM of Piney and neighbouring RM of Stuartburn formed to promote the southeast corner of Manitoba as an incredible place to live, work, play, visit, invest and explore.

The Sunrise Corner Tourism partnership was started in 2016 but was formalized as a broader economic development initiative in 2019, following the success of other partnerships like the Weed Control & Building Inspection District. We are working towards improving the quality of life for multi-generation families by creating opportunities to build a sustainable community and attract economic development throughout our region.

Whether you’re a business owner, future entrepreneur or community volunteer with an idea for a new business, community initiative or tourist attraction, we invite you to visit the Sunrise Corner Economic Development website or contact our Economic Development Manager, Monique Chenier.
