Data Quality 

Lineage 

Lineage statement
Wildlife Refuge boundaries were originally part of an administrative boundaries dataset containing vector representations and names of various administrative regions and index grids for the Province of Manitoba.  The dataset was digitized from 1:250 000 official mylar survey maps and published in May 1997.  

Wildlife Refuge boundaires were edited in 2019 to accurately reflect the Designation of Wildlife Lands Regulation (171/2001) under The Wildlife Act (C.C.S.M. c. W130).
