October 21, 2020

Assiniboine Community College has received a $1M donation from Sunrise Credit Union to support and expand its agricultural training opportunities. The funding will be put towards its plans to build The Prairie Innovation Centre, which will provide space for more than 800 students to engage in hands-on training in agriculture, environment, and related technology programs. “The college has long focused on providing leadership in agriculture and this donation is a significant step toward this major undertaking in expanding training to meet current and emerging labour demands,” said ACC president Mark Frison. “The Prairie Innovation Centre brings the next generation of ag, environment and technology forward.” The college expects that the centre will cost a total of $10M.
