Assiniboine Community College

Founded 1961 | Brandon, MB

Assiniboine Community College offers more than 60 certificate, diploma and postgraduate programs in agriculture, food and hospitality, business, health, human services, trades and technology. Assiniboine has campuses in Winnipeg, Brandon, Dauphin and Portage la Prairie, and partners with First Nations groups to deliver community-based education. 

In 2022, the college opened the Centre for Creative Media at the Victoria Avenue East campus in Brandon. The centre hosts three programs: media and communications, digital art and design, and web and interactive development. Assiniboine also recently constructed its Centre for Adult Learning at the same campus. At the North Hill facility, the school continues to fundraise for the Prairie Innovation Centre for Sustainable Agriculture, which will support applied research and agricultural and food programming. The North Hill campus is also home to the Len Evans Centre for Trades and Technology and the Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts.

Assiniboine has agreements with several high schools in Manitoba where students are able to receive dual credits for high school and college and, simultaneously, see if a program is right for them. The integrated comprehensive health-care aide program awards graduates a certificate as well as a high school diploma.
