MB changes Private Vocational Institutions Act to better protect students

March 15, 2019

The Province of Manitoba has introduced changes to the Private Vocational Institutions Act that will increase protections for students. “We want to modernize the rules for Manitoba’s system of private vocational institutions so students can make well-informed choices on where to study,” said Education and Training Minister Kelvin Goertzen. “These changes would increase transparency and accountability and reduce red tape, so institutions can focus on students’ results instead of paperwork.” Goertzen added that the changes will help the private vocational institutions to enhance their reputation and integrity. The amendment is the first update to the act since 2002. MB (MB)
