The Rural Municipality of St. Clements is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Manitoba. The municipality’s western boundary runs along the Red River and Lake Winnipeg – from south of Lockport, then northward to Grand Beach Provincial Park. Eastward, the boundary is irregular and sits adjacent to other municipalities such as Alexander and Pine Falls/Powerview.
Within the municipality the terrain is diverse: from rolling plains, to rich forest and marshland, to pristine beaches. The municipality is home to an ecological preserve and a provincial park, both rich in beautiful and varied landscapes.
The municipality is known for its many parks and beach communities, making the R.M. of St. Clements "the place to be” for year-round relaxation and recreation. Activities abound in every season: swimming and boating in the summer; fishing, hunting and hiking in the spring and fall; snowmobiling and skiing in the winter. Sitting at the northern edge of the municipality is Grand Beach Provincial Park on Lake Winnipeg – Manitoba’s most popular tourist destination on the province’s largest lake.
Tourism is one of the municipality’s strongest economic activities. With some of Manitoba’s greatest beaches within its boundaries, services and products cater to the beach goers and cottager owners in the municipality. Cottage rentals, bed and breakfast inns, and hotels are found in the municipality. Professional services such as building contractors and plumbing / roofing specialists are also plentiful – these services that are utilized by not just by residents, but also those keen on building or repairing their "weekend getaways". In addition, the Lockport area attracts many visitors, contributing to the economic activity in the municipality.
