A message about this weekend’s protests from our Interim President & CEO

To all Red River College staff and students,

Like many of you, we watched this weekend as protests swept across our neighbours to the south and erupted in Montreal and Toronto.

Diversity, equity and inclusivity are Red River College’s heart and soul. They are values we celebrate, hold dear, and continually aspire to. It is important we acknowledge that we still have much work ahead of us to ensure all our faculty, staff and students truly feel safe, respected and equal.

As individuals and as members of our College community, we have a responsibility to support one another, stand up for our values, and work towards reconciliation. It is important we stand together in solidarity with those seeking equality, even when we are hurting the most. Continue reading ›

Summer job opportunities for students

Check out these new government programs, featuring two new job portals that will give eligible students access to various student and summer opportunities:

  • Canada Summer Jobs is a government program that gives funding to trusted employers to help them create quality jobs for youth in Canada. These jobs are posted on Job Bank for a limited time to help more young people find them. New jobs will be added regularly as they get approved for funding until February 2021. For more information, visit: Canada Summer Jobs program
  • Student Jobs MB is a new way to connect you directly to jobs in your area and throughout Manitoba. Through Student Jobs MB, you can be matched with and apply for multiple jobs with the click of a button. For more information and to register, visit: Student Jobs MB

If you have any questions, contact RRC Student Employment Services at ses@rrc.ca.

Commuter Challenge update

Commuter Challenge is here! Re-connect with your commute. Hold a walking Teams meeting, take a coffee break bike ride, or even re-create your commute by cycling around your neighborhood before your workday begins. Win great prizes by registering here and logging your activity during the week.

Congrats to Linda C, who won the first Commuter Challenge Daily Prize Pack: a jar of our very own Creekside Honey, a Sustainability Contigo mug, and a $20 gift card to St.Leon’s Garden!

Grow-a-Row

Our Grounds team is hard at work getting the College’s garden ready for the seventh year of our Grow-a-Row initiative.

Last harvest, we broke our RRC donation record with 4,270 lbs of carrots, beets, onions, pumpkins, and potatoes to help support the community.

This year we invite YOU to join us from home to beat our record.

Whether you want to grow a full row to donate, or contribute a variety from your harvest, sign-up to tell us what you’re planting and we’ll stay connected at harvest time! Donations can be big or small – it all adds up!
