Two climate change projects based in Manitoba are receiving funding from the federal government.

Eco-West Canada and the Assiniboine Park Conservancy are each receiving $100,000 to assist their fights against climate change.

Eco-West promises to work with small and medium-sized companies to raise awareness and provide risk mitigation training to municipalities across the prairies.

Assiniboine Park promises to engage youth and create a social media campaign to address how to face barriers to effectively fight climate change.

The pair of organizations are 2 of 19 organizations receiving funding from the federal government as part of the Climate Action Fund.

The Climate Action Fund is part of the government’s strategy to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
