New, Innovative Campaign Partners with Industry to Showcase Red River College Grads

April 1, 2015


This week Red River College (RRC) will launch its spring 2015 advertising campaign to celebrate the success of alumni and the diverse, innovative organizations that hire them. 

“Red River College alumni are known throughout Manitoba and the world for possessing the necessary skills to be V.I.P.’s in their chosen fields,” said David Rew, Interim President & CEO, Red River College. “It’s just one of the many reasons RRC Grads Get Hired, and this spring we’re celebrating the role our alumni play in driving Manitoba’s economy and how they are leaders in their careers and their workplaces.”

As part of 2015’s spring campaign, Red River College invited organizations to participate in a creative, co-operative advertising campaign. The cost-sharing model provided an opportunity for industry partners to promote their brand and to celebrate an RRC grad, a V.I.P., within their organization. 

“This is an excellent opportunity to partner with Red River College and recognize a valued member on our executive team,” said Paul Soubry, President & CEO, New Flyer Industries Inc. “Red River College develops skilled grads that are driving Manitoba’s economy and New Flyer is pleased to provide meaningful employment in our community.”

Appearing this spring in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba, the 2015 billboard campaign features more than 40 members from RRC’s alumni community. Visit for a look at some of what you can expect to see over the next couple of months.

Red River College has nine campuses and annual enrolments of more than 30,000 in full-and part-time degree, diploma and certificate programs. Through award-winning instruction and training on state-of-the-art equipment, RRC prepares its students to become leaders in their fields, while partnering with industry to conduct research and ensure curriculum remains up-to-date.
