New hog barns in Manitoba are subject to stringent regulations that ensure our natural resources are protected for generations to come. Community consultations and engagement guide new developments, focused on the best interests of all Manitobans.
Barn developments begin with extensive site assessment and public consultation followed by an application to the local municipality. That application, depending on the size of the proposed operation, is sent to the provincial government to undertake a comprehensive technical review of the proposal.
The technical review and the municipal hearing both provide opportunity for public input to ensure the project is right for the community. If a municipality approves the project, the manure storage structure must be licensed and building permits must be acquired before construction can begin.
Manitoba pork producers play an active role in building strong communities. New barn projects lead to opportunities for rural communities, and economic benefits for all Manitobans.
