Provincial money will support Manitoba’s research infrastructure

The bulk of the Manitoba government's C$150-million contribution to the University of Manitoba's fundraising campaign will be used to support new buildings and upgraded research facilities, the province's premier, Greg Selinger, announced on 13 January.

Part of the provincial funding for the university will be used to build an Inter-Professional Health Education Complex at the Bannatyne campus. The building will bring together health researchers from nursing, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and other healthcare programmes. The funding will also support the redevelopment of the engineering building and the Churchill Marine Observatory.

“For students to be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow and to tackle the big research questions, they need the best facilities and equipment,” said Selinger. “These targeted investments will support health-care innovation and climate-change research, while giving growing faculties like engineering more space for students to learn and train in.”
