Regulatory Review Update

As part of the provincial regulatory review process, the Environmental Approvals Branch of Manitoba Sustainable Development (formally known as Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship) provided us with various questions regarding the Enivornmental Impact Statement. These questions were from various government departments and members of the public.

We have submitted responses to these questions to the Environmental Approvals Branch and they are now available on the public registry for review.

MTA Office The Manitoba Trappers Association (MTA) was established in 1972 to serve the trappers of Manitoba. Lac du Bonnet has been the location of the head office since 1992. Responsibilities are divided into 11 geographical zones throughout the province, each represented by a Zone Director. Directors are elected on a two year term by the trappers and Local Fur Councils within the Zone. Alternate Directors are appointed by our Board to assist with representation of the trappers.
