The Manitoba Association of Cottage Owners Inc. (MACO) is an umbrella association of cottage, beach, ratepayers’ groups and individuals in Manitoba (MACO is an incorporated, non-profit association run by volunteers).

“MACO is calling upon individuals with an interest in cottage country to consider joining the MACO Board. A great opportunity to discuss with other cottage owners issues that are important to your cottage investment – such as education property taxes, environmental issues and more.

MACO has just made it easier for you to participate – Board meetings will be held quarterly instead of monthly. Plus, we will soon have the ability to participate in meetings by conference call, reducing your travel time.

The success of MACO depends on volunteer input and has in the past resulted in great member services such as the MACO insurance program which keeps your insurance costs down, as well as our excellent website with a wealth of informational resources.
