Grant Description
Grants to Manitoba schools and school divisions for workforce readiness programs. The purpose of this program is to provide students with the equipment and skills they need to encourage and prepare them to take advantage of local employment opportunities. Funding is intended to improve industrial arts and technical vocational programs for students in middle school and high school grades.

The Skills Strategy Equipment Enhancement Fund provides targeted funding to ensure that students have access to state-of-the-art equipment to learn the high-demand skills they need to get good jobs in Manitoba's growing economy. The Skills Strategy Equipment Enhancement Fund provides funds to improve technical vocational and industrial arts programs in Grades 7–12. This support is intended to ensure that programming is relevant to current and future labor market needs.

This fund will focus on preparing students to take advantage of employment opportunities in Manitoba’s growing economy and to continue the development of Manitoba’s skilled workforce. The fund will further support the need for advanced equipment pertaining to “Green Jobs” in Manitoba. Particular emphasis will be placed on supporting high school level programs to become accredited with Apprenticeship Manitoba.

The following requests will be prioritized based on whether the programs demonstrate the following:

  1. Have or are pursuing, in the case of trade TVE clusters, recognition through demonstrated collaboration with Apprenticeship Manitoba to accredit existing programs.
  2. Focus on equipment that supports principles of sustainability and green jobs.
  3. Promote participation in the High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP).
  4. Put students on the path to qualify for skilled, technical, or green jobs in Manitoba.
  5. Put students on the path to further education and training.
