After initially launching on March 3, the Manitoba government is extending an online survey on the Manitoba Climate and Green Plan until the end of the month, Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox said today.

“In this short period of time, we’ve received overwhelming interest with nearly 5,000 responses to date,” said Cox.  “We are pleased the survey has attracted so much attention and therefore want to give Manitobans more time to provide input.  We look forward to sharing the framework of our plan soon, guided at every step by the input of Manitobans.”

The survey was initially launched on March 3 and was due to end this Sunday, March 19.  Submissions will now be accepted until Friday, March 31.

Manitoba’s plan will include measures to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and adopt energy-saving technologies, and Manitobans will be able to offer their suggestions of what initiatives potential carbon pricing revenue could be directed toward.

The Manitoba Climate and Green Plan is being developed to:

  • reduce carbon emissions causing climate change,
  • adapt to climate change impacts,
  • preserve wetlands and vulnerable ecosystems,
  • integrate water and land use,
  • build new clean economy growth, and
  • foster sustainable living opportunities for people and communities.

The climate change survey is available on the consultation website at:
