"Today, the economy of the community is bustling with numerous businesses and services located throughout the town. The community acts as a retail and shopping centre for a large number of small Northern Manitoba communities. Air or truck brings in goods and supplies, and are re-distributed to the communities that need them. Gillam is located in a wilderness paradise and has built itself a thriving tourist industry. The region is dotted with thousands of untouched lakes and streams, and the opportunities for trophy fishing are almost endless. Numerous lodges and fly-in outposts attract thousands of hunters, fishers and outdoors enthusiasts each year. Many of these travellers pass through Gillam on their way in or out of the wilderness, and many of the town's businesses capitalize on this opportunity by providing goods, supplies and accommodations." Also from the Town website, " Around 1966, It was decided that the north held a great potential for hydroelectric power. The starting of Kettle Generating Station increased the population of Gillam to over 3,000. Gillam became a modernized "suburban" town complete with housing, shopping mall, recreational center, hospital, Nursery - Grade 12 school, water and sewage treatment plants, staff houses, three churches, and an airport , bus and train stations. Also, after the construction of Kettle was complete, Longspruce and Limestone Generating Stations were constructed. Gillam currently has a population of approximately 1,200 residents."
