The number of opportunities for Manitoban Municipalities to access funding to implement their planned green initiatives is growing. Many new sources have been announced in recent months—and may provide the opening needed to move the municipality’s priority actions forward. 

The Government of Manitoba has provided financial support to Eco-West Canada and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) to help municipalities in Manitoba understand the changing funding landscape.  

Thanks to this funding, Eco-West Canada and IISD hosted an informational webinar on December 1st, 2021 to share more information about available funding opportunities.  

Examples of projects that could be supported through the available funding include: 

  • Climate-proofing critical infrastructure 

  • Retrofitting community buildings to be more energy efficient 

  • Greening your transportation sector, upgrading your fleet vehicles, or expanding active transportation networks 

  • Updating your wastewater systems
