Statistics

Assiniboine Community College (ACC) offers over 40 unique programs in the fields of agriculture, environment, business, health and human services, food and hospitality, trades and technology. ACC has an average annual full-time enrolment of 2,800 including apprenticeship.  And the Manitoba Emergency Services College is a great example in terms of a one-of a kind educational opportunity in Manitoba.
