MOPIA at Keewatin Tribal Council (KTC) Northern Manitoba Waste Management Conference

MOPIA provided provincial ODS certification training in Thompson, Manitoba in February 2019 to several KTC members, in addition to provincial (Sustainable Development) and federal (ISC) government officials. The training was aimed at the recovery of refrigerant from appliances and can be applied to automobile air conditioning refrigerant recovery too. Several communities have abandoned or scrap white goods and autos that contain regulated refrigerants that must be recovered as per Manitoba Regulation 103/94 and to protect the environment. Pictured above is MOPIA trainer Kirk Esau who provided the hands-on refrigerant recovery (demo) training.
