The Province of Manitoba has created a $1 million fund to invest in upgrades to high school technical training facilities to better equip students to enter apprenticeship programs and learn trades.

“This new $1 million fund invests in better equipment that will provide students with technical skills and directly link them to rewarding careers,” said Theresa Oswald, Manitoba economy minister. “It will also help prepare our youth to take advantage of the good jobs being created by our record investments in infrastructure.”

The fund is intended to increase options for students to earn credit toward college programs while still in high school, promote expansion of work placements, support accredited programs so more students can get their Level 1 training while still in high school and skip their first year of college, and make new equipment available to students.
