The Environmental Approvals Branch ensures that developments are regulated in a manner that protects the environment and public health, and sustains a high quality of life for present and future Manitobans.
The Environmental Approvals carries out its mission by: administering development approval requirements of The Environment Act, The Dangerous Goods Handling and Transportation Act, The Public Health Act, and the Pesticides Regulation; controlling municipal, industrial and hazardous waste sources of pollutants; minimizing environmental impact of development proposals; minimizing adverse effects to the environment and public health from pesticide use; and administering the Water and Wastewater Facility Operators Regulation. This is accomplished through the activities of three Sections of the Branch.
