The University College of The North in The Pas unveiled the completion of a 2 million dollar renovation of their science labs last Friday. This project has expanded UCN science lab spaces to respond to northern and indigenous research and educational priorities and to bring the labs to industry standards. Improvements to the lab include upgrades to chemical storage, fume hoods, and safety devices.
This project was made possible by investments made by UCN and the Governments of Canada and Manitoba. UCN invested $1.1 Million, The Provincial Government provided $450,000, and the Federal Government provided $550,000.
Manitoba Education and Training Minister Ian Wishart stated in a news release that modern science and technology infrastructure is essential for Manitobans to contribute to cutting edge research.
