The Manitoba Round Table for Sustainable Development is an advisory body to the provincial government that provides advice and support to decision makers toward making responsible resource, land use, environment, social and economic development decisions for the province. The Manitoba Round Table is an integral component of the province’s sustainable development strategy.
Members of the Manitoba Round Table are appointed by the Minister of Sustainable Development through Order-in-Council. They represent a broad range of experience and technical expertise, as well as regions and sectors of the province to assist government in making informed decisions on implementing sustainable strategies in communities and regions across the province. To reflect government’s commitment to sustainable development and to emphasize the cross-departmental responsibilities associated with its implementation, a number of cabinet ministers serve as members of the Manitoba Round Table.
The Manitoba Round Table for Sustainable Development was established in law upon proclamation of The Sustainable Development Act on July 1, 1998 to promote sustainable development in Manitoba and provide advice and recommendations to government in accordance with The Sustainable Development Act. More information about the Manitoba Round Table, including the duties and powers of the Round Table can be found in The Sustainable Development Act or the Manitoba Round Table’s Annual Report.
