The Manitoba Climate Change Action Fund (MCCAF), established in January 2001, was a part of the Province's climate change plan of action. It supported made-in-Manitoba projects that develop innovative ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and assist in adaptation to climate change.
The Climate and Green Initiatives Branch is currently working to redesign community-based climate programming. Part of this work includes redeveloping MCCAF to be more comprehensive, with an enhanced focus on increasing public awareness and measuring longer term greenhouse gas reductions.
