Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) is committing $10 million as part of a $15.7-million investment in aerospace technology development and training at Red River College (RRC). The funding will go to two RRC facilities — an expansion of the Centre for Aerospace Technology and Training (CATT) and new space at the Smart Factory situated on RRC’s Notre Dame campus. Additional funding is being provided by StandardAero ($4.5 million) and RRC ($1.2 million). CATT is co-located at Standard Aero’s Winnipeg Plant 5 facility which specializes in testing of new materials and processes. StandardAero, Scottsdale AZ, is a key player in Winnipeg’s manufacturing sector with a focus on maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). Smart Factory provides an enriched training environment by connecting aerospace and other manufacturing organizations with specialized equipment and new technology for supporting advanced manufacturing processes.
