Assiniboine Community College is currently in the process of expanding and relocating to its new North Hill campus in Brandon, Man. The expansion began in 2007 with the opening of the state-of-the-art Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts, set on a beautiful 5,400-sq.-foot heritage site. Since then, the expansion project saw the construction of the Len Evans Centre for Trades and Technology in 2010, and a sustainable greenhouse in 2013.
Assiniboine offers more than 40 certificate, diploma and post-graduate programs across a variety of disciplines including agriculture, food and hospitality, business, health, human services, trades and technology. The college also delivers apprenticeship training, English language training and continuing studies.
With campuses in Brandon, Dauphin and Winnipeg, Assiniboine provides comprehensive educational opportunities throughout Manitoba. The college also partners with many First Nations communities and organizations to deliver community-based education.
Assiniboine has agreements in place with a number of high schools in Manitoba, allowing students to receive credit toward their certificates or diplomas. For example, students at two high schools are eligible for the college’s comprehensive health care aide (CHCA) program. Students take the 24-week program in addition to their regular courses. They can graduate with both their high school diploma and CHCA certificate.
