Red River College campuses and facilities remain closed
While some Manitoba businesses and services are reopening today, Red River College campuses and facilities remain closed to staff, students, and the public. We are continuing to deliver academic programs and services online.

Celebrating Mental Health Week
May 4 to 10 is Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is social connection. Connecting with other people in our communities doesn’t just feel good, it’s also good for our mental health. Good mental health, in turn, helps us to successfully learn and work. This week, we’ll share a variety of perspectives and resources from RRC community members on the Wellness Blog.
You’re also invited to attend a free webinar delivered by our friends at MindWell, featuring Jordan Friesen, M.O.T., from the Canadian Mental Health Association:
Mindfulness and the 5 Pillars of Learning for Mental Health in the Workplace
Date: Thursday, May 7
Time: Noon – 1pm
Topic: As the world finds itself in the midst of a global pandemic and organizations and individuals across the world learn how to adjust to a new way of working and living, prioritizing mental health in the workplace has become ever more important.
