The University of Manitoba received $250,000 on Monday from the federal government to repair two roofs of buildings on its Fort Garry campus.
Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) is helping to repair the Frank Kennedy Centre and the Extended Education Building.
“This investment at Frank Kennedy Centre addresses an important infrastructure need while allowing us to redirect resources destined for these roof repairs into other university priorities,” said U of M president and vice-chancellor David Barnard.
The Frank Kennedy Centre serves students, staff and community members seeking active lifestyles, while the Extended Education Building provides off-campus degree credit and non-degree courses, on-campus summer session courses, distance and online courses, as well as certificate programs.
