Manitoba is entering the second year of implementation of the Non-Essential Use of Pesticides Regulation and the province wants to hear from Manitobans about their experiences with this legislation. This announcement was made by Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox announced.

“The purpose of the legislation is to reduce the exposure of people and pets to herbicides used in lawn care for non-essential or cosmetic purposes,” Cox said. “We are committed to finding the right balance between protecting the environment, minimizing the impact, and providing usable, aesthetic green spaces in our communities.”

Manitobans can email submissions to or respond through an online survey until Sept. 12.
