The college also delivers apprenticeship programming in a range of skilled trades disciplines.


The college welcomed more than 3,700 full-time and 6,000 part-time students last year. Of those students, 500 were international students from over 20 countries. With campuses in Brandon, Dauphin, Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie, Assiniboine provides comprehensive educational opportunities throughout Manitoba. The college also partners with many communities and organizations across the province to deliver customized education and training.


The college employs more than 650 part and full-time employees and Assiniboine's annual provincial economic impact is $612 million. In the most recent survey of graduates, nine months after graduation, 94 percent or graduates were employed, and 92 percent remained in Manitoba. With 86 per cent of graduates originating in the province, that’s a net population gain for Manitoba as a result of students studying at Assiniboine. Our most recent graduates, nine months after graduation are making an average of $46,800, exceeding the average income of Canadian college diploma grads after two years, which is $38,200 according to the National Graduates Survey [The State of Post Secondary Education in Canada 2022 (Usher, 2022)].


Assiniboine Community College campuses are located on the traditional territories of Treaty No. 1 and Treaty No. 2, the shared traditional lands of Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dene and Anishinabek/Ojibwe peoples, and the homeland of the Red River Métis. We acknowledge their welcome to the students who seek knowledge here.


The college has been providing exceptional learning experiences for more than 60 years, offering unparalleled learning environments and responding to the demands and requirements of the Manitoba labour market. Following the philosophy of "learn by doing," programs combine theory with hands-on learning inside classrooms, labs, kitchens, shops, fields and the college's Sustainable Greenhouse.
