Protected Areas In Manitoba – Wall Size
An overview of Areas of Special Interest and Manitoba’s protected areas network which is made up of national parks, ecological reserves and the protected portions of traditional use planning areas, provincial parks, park reserves, provincial forests, wildlife management areas, and private lands.  For best viewing, it is recommended that this map be printed a minimum size of 36 inches by 48 inches.

Manitoba's Ecoregions
Manitoba's Ecoregions are broad areas that share similarities in geography, climate and vegetation.  Protected Areas are to be identified and created in each of Manitoba's 16 ecoregions.

Ecoregion Representation
This representation map of Manitoba's enduring features gives an indication of where the job of establishing protected areas is complete and where more work needs to be done.  The degree to which Manitoba's enduring features are adequately, moderately, partially, and not represented are shown. For the 2013 reporting year, Manitoba will begin reporting on the level of representation in its protected areas network by ecoregion rather than by natural region to match reporting criteria used across Canada.

Areas of Special Interest
Areas of Special Interest (ASIs) are candidate protected areas selected to represent the enduring features found within an ecoregion that still need to be captured in Manitoba’s protected areas network.

Priority Areas
The Protected Areas Initiative has identified several priority areas that will be the focus of the program’s work over the next few years.
