a) The maximum height shall not exceed 3 feet in any front yard. (The front yard is the front 25 feet of the lot, measured from the front property boundary.)
b) The maximum height shall not exceed 6 feet in any side yard or rear yard.
Building permits are generally not required for fences or walls. Retaining walls where the height of the wall exceeds 4 feet at any point require a permit prior to construction.

As per Manitoba Building Code Specifications:
Private Pool means an artificially constructed basin, lined with concrete, fiberglass, vinyl or like material, that is capable of containing water depth greater than 60 cm. (24 inches) and that is located on the property of a single-family residence.
A professional engineer must certify all in ground pools.
Where can I locate my pool?
As long as your swimming pool is properly fenced it many be located in your side or rear yeard. It must be no closer that 0.6m (2 feet) from your read property line and 0.3m (1 foot) from your side property line. As well, the pool must be at least 1.2 m from your home.
Where can I locate the mechanical equipment for my pool?
The only restrictions on the location of the mechanical equipment, is that it may not be located in your front yard, and it may not be located any closer than 4.6m (15 feet) to an operable window of a neighboring residence. Having a fence between the mechanical equipment and the window does not reduce or remove this requirement.
