The Government of Manitoba has announced that it will be distributing $25.6M in transitional support to public postsecondary institutions. The funds, which are from the Transitional Support Fund, are intended to enable postsecondary institutions to adapt to the changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, including enrolment changes and increased costs due to the change to online learning. “A strong and responsive post-secondary education system is essential in Manitoba’s economic recovery and these investments in post-secondary institutions will ensure our universities and colleges will continue to play a critical role in protecting Manitoba’s future,” said MB Economic Development and Training Minister Ralph Eichler.
