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.
