Introduction to MTA

The Manitoba Trappers Association (MTA) was established in 1972 to serve the trappers of Manitoba. Responsibilities are divided into 10 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. (Zone Directors List)
