Our team is responsible for developing and delivering programs and services that ensure a healthy, beautiful environment for Manitobans to enjoy now, and for generations to come. ¬†You will learn more about our department’s ongoing efforts in these critical areas of public service, as well as how each of us can contribute to a cleaner, greener planet for us all.
