A 110,000-tonne grain elevator and annexes in the village of Dominion City, on the CPR Emerson Subdivision in the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin, were operated by United Grain Growers. The facility closed on 31 January 1999 and was demolished later that year. UGG took over the nearby Manitoba Pool elevator.
