UManitoba receives funding for new respiratory therapist seats

The University of Manitoba’s respiratory therapist program will be opening four new seats thanks to new funds from the provincial government. The Government of Manitoba has announced that it will invest over $482K into the program with the intent of helping address the shortage of respiratory therapists in the province. The shortage is projected to increase over the next 10 years. Seats will be added at the university this month and the funding will go towards covering some operating costs as well as providing necessary equipment to support the seats.
