In 2009, the City of Dauphin, in partnership with Dauphin Economic Development and Dauphin Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation commissioned an independent housing study which identified the need for additional housing units in multiple categories.
At the Regular Council Meeting of April 18, 2011 a Housing Policy Statement was approved by Mayor and Council to address the identified housing shortage in Dauphin. The purpose of the Housing Policy is to establish guidelines to help address the identified shortage.
In 2012, Dauphin Economic Development conducted a Housing Needs Survey to quantify specific needs of residents. A summary of the report is available from our office.
We are currently working on a Housing Needs & Demand Study with the results to be released summer 2019.
