Three provincial statutes respecting wildlife and wildlife habitat are administered by the Wildlife Branch: The Wildlife Act, The Endangered Species and Ecosystems Act and The Polar Bear Protection Act

These Acts are available online through the Statutory Publications Office, for reference, research and private use. Official versions in print form are available for purchase from the Office of the Queen's Printer. They can also be viewed in The Continuing Consolidation of the Statutes of Manitoba in the Legislative Library or any public library. Regulations are also available as PDF documents.

Permits may be required for certain wildlife-related activities. Specific information is required to assess eligibility for a number of wildlife permits. Permit applications are available for download on this website.
