Manitoba's Network of Protected Areas

Since the start of the Protected Areas Initiative in 1990, the protected areas network has increased from 350,000 hectares to just over 7.1 million hectares today.  Approximately 11% of Manitoba is protected.

The Protected Areas Initiative has made significant progress towards representing examples of the biodiversity found across Manitoba. See the Chronology.
