This is a list of protected areas of Manitoba that are part of the provincial protected areas network.

There are four different types of protected areas (excluding national parks):

  • Provincial parks, which are further subdivided into five classes:
    • Wilderness parks
    • Natural parks
    • Recreation parks
    • Heritage parks
    • Park reserves
  • Ecological reserves
  • Wildlife management areas
  • Traditional use planning areas

There are also two Provincial Forests that are within the bounds of provincial parks, and a series of lands privately owned by three conservation agencies which are part of the provincial protected areas network.
