The Manitoba Weed Supervisors Association (MWSA) is comprised of and represents Weed Supervisors who are individually employed by Weed Control Boards formed by one or more Municipalities.
The MWSA strives to provide our members with up-to-date weed control information, assisting them in developing effective and efficient programs, and on a broader scale to promote practical and environmentally sustainable weed control efforts throughout the province.
Weed Supervisors are responsible for implementing weed control programs within their respective Weed District. As well as controlling weeds in and on public areas (Eg. municipal rights-of-way, village boulevards, etc) services may also be provided under contract to control weeds on provincial highways rights-of-way, railways, etc. We also work with landowners to develop control strategies on private lands for particularly invasive weeds such as leafy spurge. If necessary, Weed Supervisors are authorized to regulate weed control under the authority of Manitoba's Noxious Weeds Act.
The Southwest Weed District is comprised of the following municipalities: Grassland, Souris-Glenwood, Whitehead, Sifton and Pipestone. The eastern part of the Municipality of Grassland is covered by Weed District #4.
