By Anthony Capkun
November 8, 2013 – A tender has been issued for the design of the first phase of a new Skilled Trades and Technology Centre (STTC) at Red River College’s Notre Dame campus, said Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger.
“This new centre will provide new opportunities for more Manitobans to pursue rewarding careers in trades and technology,” said Selinger. “It will also be critical to delivering on our commitment to add 75,000 new skilled workers to Manitoba’s economy by 2020.”
The STTC will be a roughly 100,000-sf facility that will eventually accommodate nearly 1000 students learning trades such as electrical, HVAC and carpentry. It will also provide opportunities to support the development of advanced technology fields, such as composites manufacturing.
