Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan

We know our climate is changing. The science is clear and conclusive. Climate change is real and is accelerating at an alarming rate. It is a serious threat to the well-being of Manitoba’s economy, ecosystems, and communities. But there is hope.

We asked Manitobans to tell us what their vision is for a cleaner, greener Manitoba. The result is the Made-in Manitoba Climate and Green Plan -- a bold new vision that builds upon our early, strategic investments in clean hydroelectricity.

Made-in-Manitoba plan

Our vision is to make Manitoba Canada's cleanest, greenest, and most climate resilient province. It is a vision based on the strong foundations already put in place by Manitobans. It is a vision we can achieve with this strategic framework we are proposing to Manitobans.

Manitoba's 2018-22 GHG Emissions Reductions Goal

The Manitoba government has set its greenhouse-gas emissions reduction goal for 2018 to 2022, as required in The Climate and Green Plan Implementation Act, based on the independent, scientific recommendations made by the Expert Advisory Council. Manitoba is the first jurisdiction in North America to establish an economy-wide carbon savings account. It provides a clear focus and pathway for governments, businesses, municipalities and communities and all Manitobans to take action in reducing emissions in a meaningful, practical and measurable way.

The Minister of Sustainable Development has received the Expert Advisory Council report and has accepted the Council's recommended goal for greenhouse gas emissions reductions. Read the Minister of Sustainable Development's response to the Expert Advisory Council ( English | French ) and letter to the Council on next steps

This video demonstrates how the proposed carbon savings account plan in Manitoba will reduce emissions.

Efficient Trucking Program

Under the Low Carbon Economy Fund, Manitoba is taking climate action in the transportation sector. Heavy-duty vehicle emissions account for approximately 11 per cent of Manitoba's carbon pollution and Manitoba's Efficient Trucking Program will support retrofits in the transportation sector, such as, fuel-saving devices and technologies, reducing energy consumption, and providing environmental benefits. Visit the website for more information on the program or to apply today.

Conservation & Climate Fund

The Conservation and Climate Fund provides support to projects occurring in Manitoba that incorporate actions to combat and adapt to climate change and protect the environment in alignment with the priorities and implementation of the Manitoba Climate and Green Plan.

As an initiative of the Manitoba Climate and Green Plan, the Fund supports Manitoba's vision of becoming Canada's cleanest, greenest, most climate-resilient province.
