NEW – Municipal & Residential Guides to Composting

Organic matter is an essential component of soils and plays a fundamental role in soil conservation, crop production, and fertility maintenance. Recycling organic matter to the soil is a part of carbon cycling, an emerging and important environmental issue. Organic waste is recognized as an important organic matter resource and has numerous beneficial attributes. However, when sent to landfills, organic waste generates greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and can create nuisances and health issues. Therefore, it is important to turn this valuable resource into a soil amendment and fertilizer through sound and efficient collection, transportation, treatment, and management practices.

With that in mind, the following documents will provide municipalities and their residents with the basic information they need to get started on their own composting initiatives and projects:

Request for Quotations – Level II Chargers for Electric Vehicles

In 2019, Eco-West Canada’s (EWC) submission to Natural Resources Canada for an EV project was accepted for NRCan’s ‘Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program’ (ZEVIP). For its proposed initiative, EWC has grouped several Manitoba municipalities in southeast Manitoba, the Interlake region and the City of Winnipeg to install up to a total of 31 Level 2 charging stations at several sites in the region. Every charging station will be supported by a dedicated parking space. EWC and the participating municipalities will actively promote the stations through EV charging apps and ensure that proper signage is installed at every location so that people are easily made aware of its existence and use. These charging stations will allow all participating municipalities to move ahead with concrete actions supported by their municipal climate action plans and promote the use of electric vehicles in their respective communities.

Deadline for submissions: January 8, 2021
