ACC receives $10M in support of new agriculture centre to accommodate anticipated enrolment growth


Assiniboine Community College has received a $10M investment from the Government of Manitoba to support the development of the Prairie Innovation Centre. MB reports that the college has proposed several new and expanded programs for its North Hill Campus, and that it will need the centre to accommodate the campus’ anticipated enrolment growth of 600 students. “We know there is a real need in our agriculture sector, where projections show one in five jobs could go unfulfilled by 2029,” said MB Premier Heather Stefanson. “Right here in Brandon, Assiniboine Community College is offering a solution.” The Winnipeg Free Press reports that ACC has campaigned for the centre since 2019 and raised over $16.5M in private industry support.
