Educator Working Group

The MCSC Educator Working Group was born from what were previously known as the Education & Training Committee and the College Working Group.

In 2017, the University College of the North, Red River College, Assiniboine Community College, Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology, Manitoba Education and Training, Apprenticeship, The American Concrete Institute, Construction Safety Association of Manitoba, and River East Transcona School Division came together to look at ways educational institutions will work together to open all doors and ladder students into careers in construction.

Their goals are about breaking down barriers and working together to find creative solutions to address challenges facing underrepresented groups (i.e. youth at risk, Indigenous students, women, immigrants). The MCSC Educator Working Group is passionate and determined to make a difference.

College Working Group

Manitoba Construction Sector Council has partnered with Red River College, Assiniboine Community College, University College of the North,  Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology and Apprenticeship to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with other business people and potential clients and/or customers. The group will work together to recognize prior learning, develop new courses and create a road map for adults returning to school. This is a map that will help learners navigate the system and open all doors for learning.
