Métis students in MB to benefit from new MOU

June 4, 2014

Winnipeg’s Red River College recently signed an MOU with the Manitoba Métis Federation and Louis Riel Institute that will result in further collaboration between the signatories and the establishment of a new bursary for Métis students. Matching $200,000 donations by RRC and MMF will be used for the bursary. A new working group created by the partnership will focus on education, business, and growing industry partnerships to increase economic prospects for MB’s Métis populations. “The collective efforts of those involved … will benefit Métis people in Manitoba [by] improving access to training and employment opportunities,” says David Chartrand, President of the Manitoba Métis Federation.
