WINNIPEG — The Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology will see major campus upgrades and expansion to accommodate its trades training program.
The provincial government is spending $4 million on the south Winnipeg post-secondary institution.
“This investment is a significant step towards supporting our new mandate,” said Paul Holden, president and CEO of MITT. “An expansion to our campus will give us greater capacity to work with our secondary, post-secondary and industry partners to provide state-of-the-art skilled trades training to career-focused students.”
As part of the expansion, MITT will get a new welding shop.
Last year, the Manitoba government announced a new mandate for MITT for it to grow and better meet the needs of students and industry including new high school programs, trades programming and new partnerships.
