MITT receives provincial support for expansion plans

October 3, 2014

Manitoba has announced funding and support to expand the Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology, a hybrid secondary/PSE institution that allows students to complete high school while simultaneously receiving college-level credits. The MB government has committed $500,000 to add 4,050 square feet of classroom space at MITT. In addition, MITT is also working to enhance its partnership with the Division scolaire franco-manitobaine to allow more Francophone students to access MITT programs. Earlier this year, MB announced a new, expanded mandate for MITT, allowing for additional credentials to be delivered and for more students to be admitted annually. President Paul Holden stated, “this is a different and exciting new way to think about education and training and how to access it. It will create extraordinary opportunities for students and industry.” MITT News
