  • Workshops for women worthwhile

    Shel Zolkewich from the Winnipeg Free Press covers some Q&A and a little bit of history about this amazing event!

    Come the end of May, women will be drawing bows, filleting fish and backing up trailers as the 21st annual Manitoba Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) weekend gets underway.

    BOW was launched in Wisconsin in 1991 by Christine Thomas, an associate dean and professor of resource management at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point College of Natural Resources.

    After doing some research, Thomas discovered many women prefer to learn outdoors skills in a non-competitive atmosphere, taught by other women. Read More…

  • Fish & Wildlife Enhancement Fund

    The Wildlife Enhancement side of the new FWEF (Fish and Wildlife Enhancement Fund) is up and running and ready to go!

    For those that weren’t aware, the FWEF is a funded by the $5 fee that has been added to all hunting and trapping licenses ($10 for all fishing licenses), and the money is allocated to a special account and goes directly to the resource and not back into general revenue. There is an independent board separate from government that evaluates all the project proposals and decides where the money goes.

    You can find information and all the application documents and guidelines on the Provinces web site at the link below.

    Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship- Wildlife Enhancement Fund

    The deadline for the first intake of applications is October 31, 2015, so there’s lots of time to put together some fantastic ideas and get some things happening.

    We are looking forward to seeing lots of great proposals. It’s your money, let’s make something happen with it!

    If anyone would like more information or would like to discuss this further, please feel free to contact me through the MWF office.

  • CSBC & MWF Team Up To Keep Manitoba Anglers Safe on the Water


    CSBC & MWF Team Up To Keep Manitoba Anglers Safe on the Water

    July 2, 2015 — Toronto, ON, — July 4th – 12th marks National Fishing Week in Canada. The Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) and the Manitoba Wildlife Federation (MWF) want to remind anglers that wearing your lifejacket is even more important than wearing your ‘lucky fishing hat’. But they do share one trait. They both have to be worn to be effective!

    According to the Canadian Safe Boating Council and the Lifesaving Society, 80 percent of recreational boaters who drown each and every year in Canada were not wearing a lifejacket or Personal Floatation Device (PFD). Most of these drownings occur in small, open power boats, accounting for 60 percent of these preventable deaths. A majority of these victims were males between the ages of 19 and 35, out for a day of fishing.

    Many of those who don’t wear their lifejackets or PFDs believe that, since they are good swimmers, having them onboard and within easy reach is good enough. But a lifejacket stored under a seat or up in the bow will be of no help when the unexpected happens, like falling overboard while trying to net the catch. Read More…


    Happy Canada Day!

    Celebrate the greatest country by experiencing the best fishing in Canada.

    What better way to celebrate living in one of the greatest countries in the world, than to go fishing. We have some of the most diverse and best fishing in Manitoba and NW Ontario. And for the most part, our fisheries have never been healthier in this province and in the Lake of the Woods region. Part of that is because we live in a society here that values our natural resources and we are free to go fishing. And free to protect our fisheries.
