Our Mission

MEIA History

In the late 1980s there was a strong interest in fostering the growth of businesses that produce goods and services related to the environment - to meet and exceed compliance.

Recognition of the needs to promote sustainable development, locally and internationally, led a focus on the strategic importance of the strengthening of a new industry - referred to by Industry Canada as the “Environmental Industry”.
Across the country, associations were established to represent the interests of the companies active in this sector. It was in this context that the Manitoba Environmental Industries Association was incorporated in 1991.

Our membership is a diverse group of Manitoba companies and organizations – environmental technology and service companies, engineering and environmental consulting firms, government departments and crown corporations, law firms, businesses, research companies, associations and community organizations.
