ACC receives $10M donation for development of Prairie Innovation Centre

Assiniboine Community College has received $10M from an anonymous philanthropist to support the development of the Prairie Innovation Centre for Sustainable Agriculture. The new centre will expand and refresh ACC’s agriculture and environment programs, provide a hub for sector engagement, foster applied research capacity, and address labour shortages in the agricultural sector. “With one in three agriculture jobs expected to go unfilled by 2029, the time for the Prairie Innovation Centre is now,” said ACC President Mark Frison. “And there’s no time more fitting to announce this substantial donation than on the eve of Manitoba Ag Days, when the presence and important of the ag sector will be felt all week long here in Brandon.”
