MB issues mandate letter to advanced education prioritizing improved student supports, healthcare and STEM training


Government of Manitoba Premier Wab Kinew has issued mandate letters to several members of his cabinet, including Advanced Education and Training Minister Renée Cable. In the mandate letter for advanced education, Kinew encourages Cable to “respect universities as self-governing institutions” and “honour the entrepreneurial nature of community colleges.” Cable was asked to deliver on the immediate priority of training more doctors and nurses through key initiatives and collaborations with the University of Manitoba, Brandon University, and Assiniboine Community College. Other priorities include increasing funding to Research Manitoba, repealing Bill 33, and restoring international student health coverage.
