Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology
MITT provides certificate, post-graduate, and diploma-level technical training for career-oriented post-secondary and secondary students in four clusters of specialization: information and business technology, health care, human services, and skilled trades. It is a leading provider of continuing education opportunities through its Lifelong Learning Institute, and offers several unique pathway programs for adult and language learners, including: MITT YouthBuild, the English Language Institute, ESL for qualifying newcomers to Canada, one of Manitoba’s largest Adult Learning Centre networks.
A hallmark of MITT’s approach is its deep collaboration with industry. Together, they identify skills gaps—both technical and soft—develop curriculum to meet them, and create work practicum opportunities that help students build connections with prospective employers while they learn. The learning environment at MITT supports students’ academic, professional, and personal success: industry veteran instructors teach, mentor, and serve as industry connection points, and teams of staff ensure the campus community is safe and inviting and that students have access to the information and resources they need to excel in their programs and successfully bridge from the classroom to a career.
Students are trained for the expectations of the Canadian workplace by reinforcing standards (for conduct, respect, inclusion, and professionalism) in the classroom and in the policies that govern the Institute. Campuses are located within or close to residential neighborhoods and are serviced by major bus routes. Institution also employ day and evening security personnel to monitor campuses and provide students a point of contact in the event they have any questions or concerns.
