We are committed to reducing the impact that people have on our environment. The Manitoba government is implementing initiatives designed to manage these impacts and preserve the environment for present and future generations.

We are also committed to conserving the rich diversity of plants and animals that Manitoba enjoys. This biodiversity is under constant threat due to population growth, overuse of resources and destruction of natural habitats through human activity.

  • Air quality management
