MB invests $450K in training program to tackle shortages at provincial shelters

The Government of Manitoba is investing $450K in a Shelter Support Foundations micro-credential training pilot program that will tackle the “unprecedented” staffing shortages faced by provincial shelters. Red River College Polytechnic will develop the curriculum with the aid of the Manitoba Association of Women’s Shelters (MAWS) and End Homelessness Winnipeg. The course will be delivered primarily in an asynchronous learning format by MAWS, and will train up to 30 participants to provide frontline services in shelters. “As we continue recovering from the pandemic, community supports and a safe place for Manitobans to stay are needed now more than ever,” said MB Families Minister Rochelle Squires.
