Biomedical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Manitoba
Known as The Polar Bear Capital of the World, Manitoba is a province filled with lush nature and rare wild life. More than two-fifths of the land area is comprised of dense forests with over 100,000 lakes and waterways, making this Canadian province a nature lover’s delight! Locals have a front-row seat to the Aurora Borealis lights and access to some of the most coveted fishing in the world.
Manitoba, which comes from a Native-American word meaning “the straits of the great spirits,” is home to 63 First Nation reserves. With reclamation of heritage and land, the term “First Nation” is the preferred verbiage of these communities and their members. Having been the first settlers of this land, the indigenous population are a significant and integral part of Manitoban society.
Manitoba’s capital, Winnipeg, is one of the most beautiful and historic Canadian cities. In downtown Winnipeg, there is a 30-block district area known as the “Exchange District.” This is named after the original Grain Exchange, which operated as a cash marketplace to promote fair trade of wheat, oats and corn until 1913. In addition to influencing Canada’s economy, this city gave inspiration to a children’s book that is probably near and dear to your heart! Remember little Winnie-the-Pooh? This character was actually inspired by a black bear cub named Winnie. A hunter purchased the bear for $20 and brought him back to the London Zoo. Author Christopher Robin Milne discovered Winnie while visiting the zoo, and the rest is history!
We’ve all heard that Canadian Hospitality is second to none. In Churchill Manitoba, it is advised that car owners leave car doors unlocked! No, this is not because Manitoban’s share their cars with strangers or anything. Rather, Churchill is the Polar Bear capital of the world! It is not uncommon for locals to come in contact with a migrating polar bear. An unlocked car door could save someone from a very scary situation, where Polar Bears outnumber the human population! Churchill is one of the top 3 locations in the world to see the Aurora Borealis, a natural phenomenon that occurs when charged particles of the sun meet atoms in the atmosphere. These glow-in-the-dark rainbows are most visible between the months of January and March when the nights are pitch black.
It’s no surprise that with such pristine nature to protect, the Manitobans are extremely environmentally conscious. In 1990, the Province passed The Waste Reduction and Prevention (WRAP) Act that provides a range of options to reduce solid waste. This makes Daniels Health the optimal environmentally responsible biomedical waste disposal partner for healthcare facilities in Mantioba.
