Campaign Assiniboine

Campaign Assiniboine logoCampaign Assiniboine is a multi-phased capital campaign that supports the college's relocation and expansion from the current campus at 1430 Victoria Avenue East to Brandon's north hill, the historic site of the former Brandon Mental Health Centre. Campaign Assiniboine was launched on January 1, 2007, and is the first capital campaign for the college.

Phase One of the campaign was to establish the Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts which houses the Culinary Arts and Hotel and Restaurant Management programs, as well as community programming.  The Foundation benefits from the generous support of the local community and from many individuals, corporations, foundations, and associations contributed $1 million towards the $6 million project.

  • Manitoba Canola Growers Association - Culinary Theatre
  • Manitoba Lotteries Corporation - Private Dining Room
  • Genesis Hospitality Inc. - Students First
  • Garland Canada - Culinary Theatre Kitchen Appliances

Building on Demand was the construction of the Len Evans Centre for Trades & Technology.  The centre opened in September 2010 to our Trades students, faculty and staff.  The $45 million facility is a delightful mix of old and new, as the former Pine Ridge building was renovated and merged with a new steel structure that houses various trades shops and student services.  The Foundation has benefited from the generous support of the local community and from many individuals, corporations, foundations, and associations to date have contributed $800,000 of enhancements towards phase two and will continue to raise funds to promote student success and to provide a positive college experience.

The future of the campaign will see the remainder of Brandon-based programming moved to the majestic Parkland Building at the North Hill Campus. The college is continuing to work with the government of Manitoba, the City of Brandon and its community partners in their commitment to this project.
