Businessmen and women have always had the motto: promotion of commercial, industrial and residential development that will make a thriving community. In the early 1900’s they formed a group and called it Smithville Board of Trade. Over the years many changes have occurred but the motto has always stayed the same. Bringing the Townships of Caistor, Gainsborough and South Grimsby into one entity, namely West Lincoln has helped grow the municipality in many ways.
West Lincoln is blessed with industrial and commercial businesses, many medium sized and a number of small family operations throughout the municipality. Churches, Schools and Organizations are strategically situated throughout the area and local citizens volunteer their time to keep them successful. West Lincoln Community Care has two locations: Community Cabin on Main Street for clothes and other accessories and the Food Bank and Furniture Outlet is located on Industrial Park Road in the Stanpac building next to the railway tracks.
