MiraManitoba's Parks, Press release

Winnipeg – The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) released its annual Parks Report today, What’s Next: Parks and Protected Areas to 2020 and Beyond, which recommends how governments in Canada – federal, provincial, territorial and Indigenous – can work together to almost double our current protected areas to achieve our international commitment to protect at least 17% of our landscape by 2020, and to plan for the longer-term work needed to reverse the catastrophic and ongoing decline in nature. Canada has the biggest opportunity in a generation to protect nature – and this report provides a roadmap for action.

We also want to thank the thousands of Manitobans who expressed their support for the initiative, which includes large-scale conservation of our boreal forest ecosystem. CPAWS is honoured to have supported this journey over the 14 years it took to reach this goal.
