In Manitoba, only certified humane traps can be used for beaver, fisher, marten, muskrat and raccoon. Any restraining traps used for lynx must be certified. See complete list of all certified traps. Additional trap models may be certified throughout the season.
A review of trapping activities in provincial parks and other Crown lands with high use was initiated in December 2012. During the review, interim restrictions on trapping were imposed in provincial parks during the trapping season, and will again be in place for the 2013/2014 season. A final decision will be announced for the 2014/15 trapping season.
Please contact the nearest Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship district office to determine the restrictions in the various provincial parks.
Changes to the "General Hunting Regulations" has eased some requirements for trappers to wear hunter orange.
