Welcome

Minister's Message

As Manitoba’s Minister of Conservation and Climate, I am pleased to welcome you to our department’s website - your portal to the many government programs and services working in harmony to protect the environment, our natural resources, and address climate change.

Manitoba is home to 92 provincial parks, covering four million hectares. Our website is where you will find information to help plan your trip to any one of our parks, in any season of the year. Whether you’re looking to explore a new canoe route, intriguing historic site, sandy beach or cross-country ski trail, Manitoba’s provincial parks have something for everyone. Our department’s addition of a new online licensing and permitting system now makes it even easier for you to obtain your park vehicle permit before you head out to enjoy our parks.

We have a dedicated team of environment/conservation officers, located throughout the province, who protect our natural resources and the environment through education and enforcement. Their primary function is to manage, protect and enhance our natural resources, fish and wildlife, protected areas, and environment while maintaining public safety. You can find contact information for your local conservation/environment officer on this page.

During the fire season, information regarding wildfires is updated regularly on our site, allowing Manitobans and visitors to our province to make informed decisions with accurate data. The Wildfire Service works at wildfire prevention, detection and suppression and everyone has a role to play in minimizing wildfire risk and accessing our forests and natural areas in a safe and responsible manner.

We continue to implement our Made in Manitoba Climate and Green Plan. Through resilience and adaptation we will be prepared to address the changing climate. You can find out more about the actions we’re taking here.

The department is also working to support the growth of a local circular economy and drive innovation and green products while reducing waste sent to landfill. Innovative policies and programs related to waste diversion and recycling in Manitoba will help us all collectively create a cleaner and greener Manitoba.

Our website is also the home to the public registry files for projects undergoing environmental assessment under The Environment Act and projects applying for licensing under The Dangerous Goods Handling and Transportation Act. Through our site, in addition to the EngageMB site you can share comments on these proposals.

Thank you for visiting our site, and enjoying all Manitoba has to offer!
