Manitoba can meet the goals set out in the IPCC’s 1.5 report. We have a community climate plan to do it.
Manitoba’s Road to Resilience is an achievable and concrete pathway to a climate resilient future. It lays out what is needed in order for us to feed, shelter, transport and produce electricity without the use of fossil fuels, with foundational chapters on nature, green jobs and the human impacts of climate change..
Under the pretext of being “practical,” many governments have chosen not to publicly discuss the urgency and scale of work required to adequately address the climate crisis. That means it is up to the community to find a pathway forward, and Manitoba’s Road to Resilience can provide the footholds. We want communities to read it, discuss it and add to future updates.

Manitoba’s Climate Action Team (CAT) is a coalition of environmental organizations in Manitoba working to create a road to climate resilience in our province. CAT was formed when the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) 1.5 Report was released, stating that we have just 12 years (now 9) to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions.
With funding from the Winnipeg foundation, CAT has hosted educational events around Winnipeg and produced the Road to Resilience, a comprehensive roadmap to meeting the emissions targets laid out in the IPCC 1.5 Report in Manitoba.
Coalition members include Climate Change Connection, Wilderness Committee – Manitoba Office, Green Action Centre, Manitoba Energy Justice Coalition and Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – Manitoba Office.
