Université de Saint-Boniface has received new funding to bolster training for early childhood education (ECE) and help meet the increasing demand for professionals in the Francophone early childhood sector in Manitoba. The two projects that the university will be undertaking include updating an introductory program, which includes integrating a course on Indigenous perspectives into ECE, and identifying a new way of delivering and improving a two-year diploma in ECE. The projects have received a combined $460K from the Association des colleges et universities de a francophonie canadienne (ACUFC). USB (MB)
