Red River College (RRC) in Manitoba is moving ahead with construction of its new $95-million Innovation Centre in downtown Winnipeg, after confirming that the federal government will provide $40.6 million toward the project. The provincial government is supporting the centre through a loan guarantee to RRC for up to $54.8 million. The Innovation Centre will attract 1,200 students along with instructors, researchers, industry and community members to work on commercialization projects for startups and small-medium enterprises, according to the college. The facility will also enable social enterprise and Indigenous entrepreneurship. Once opened, the Innovation Centre will serve as the home of RRC’s business and information technology programs, as well as its Language Training Centre, ACE (Applied Computer Education) Project Space, and Research Partnerships & Innovation office. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2020.
