Lake Winnipeg is the x27;one of the largest areas of fresh water on the planet. Our records show that, for decades, Manitobans have appreciated its beauty but also worried about the degradation of its waters and environment.

Report by journalist Émile Lapointe on an event organized in Gimli to protect the environment of Lake Winnipeg

On July 3, 2022, as reported by journalist Émile Lapointe at Téléjournal Manitoba, the rural community of Gimli as well as scientists and tourists mobilized for the preservation of Manitoba's largest lake. p>

Lake Winnipeg is the tenth largest body of fresh water in the world.

Its watershed is enormous. It spans four Canadian provinces and four American states.

Charlie Burns, co-chair of Save Lake Winnipeg, describes it as a jewel that must be protected for the future.

The population seems to agree with him.

Lake Winnipeg is grandiose and immense. To navigate in certain places, it is necessary to use lighthouses to guide sailors and boaters.

Report by journalist Pierre Verrière on the lighthouses of Lake Winnipeg

Lighthouses, and those who were their guardians, are the stars of this report by journalist Pierre Verrière presented to Téléjournal Manitoba, on August 6, 2019.

Some of these lighthouses are now classified as historic monuments by the Canadian and Manitoba governments.

The images from Pierre Verrière's report confirm the beauty of Lake Winnipeg.

This fact explains why it has been transformed into a vacation spot for several decades.

Report by journalist Maurice Auger on the origins of Albert Beach at the southern tip of Lake Winnipeg

This is what the report by journalist Maurice Auger shows us presented on the programReflets d'un pays, on August 12, 1977.

At the southern tip of the lake is Albert Beach.

At the end of the 1940s, Father Léo Blais encouraged the creation of a summer camp for French-speaking children.

Families of Saint-Boniface, like that of Louis Hébert, came to settle there.

Nowadays, Albert Beach remains a very popular place with francophones in Saint-Boniface.

Lake Winnipeg is not only a beautiful place to have fun.

It has many natural resources, particularly fisheries.

This beauty and these resources must be protected, says fisherman Robert Kristjanson to journalist-director Rémi Gosselin in a report presented on the show La Semaine Verte, on November 5, 2006.

Blue-green algae proliferate in the waters of the lake.

The latter, fueled by the pollution, suffocate marine life and produce harmful toxins that threaten the health of the lake.

The good condition of the Lake Winnipeg ecosystem will, in 2023, be weakened as much by blue-green algae as by the spread of zebra mussels. p>

In addition, poor wastewater management encourages the outbreak of the bacteriaE. coliand caused more or less prolonged closures of several beaches on Lake Winnipeg.

In 2021, the federal and provincial governments signed a new 10-year agreement to protect the Lake Winnipeg ecosystem.
