ACC, RRC Polytech, UManitoba expand seats in health care programs


Assiniboine Community College, Red River College Polytechnic, and the University of Manitoba have recently announced expanded health care programs, thanks to a $3.6M investment from the Government of Manitoba. ACC will be using a $2M investment to introduce 70 new seats in its Practical Nursing program. RRC Polytech will use $320K to expand three programs: the medical radiologic technologist program, the magnetic resonance imaging technologist program, and the advanced care paramedic program. UManitoba will use $1.2M to increase its respiratory therapy program by 20 seats. “These new training seats will ensure there is an ongoing stream of highly skilled and dedicated health-care providers who can work in our system for years to come,” said MB Health Minister Audrey Gordon.
