The Government of Manitoba announced a new provincial water strategy on November 8.

“Manitoba is fortunate to have excellent water resources at a time when water security and resilience are a growing factor for companies considering where to invest,” said Ray Bouchard, co-chair, Integrated Water Strategy Committee and board chair, EMILI. “In a changing climate, sustainable water management and smart water investments will be a strong part of Manitoba’s competitive advantage in agriculture, industry and future growth sectors.”

EMILI has played a role in informing the strategy by leading stakeholder engagement, conducting research, and executing three strategic water projects.
