Jan. 17, 2024 – The governments of Canada and Manitoba are investing $1.3 million over five years to the Assiniboine Community College (ACC) for Horticulture Production.

Through the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership, this investment will fund innovative and sustainable production practices, and protective system technologies.

Two projects currently underway at ACC include conducting research on high tunnel crop production and research in a passive greenhouse setting, which reduces the production costs compared to a standard greenhouse.


ACC is also researching crop varieties, agronomy and cropping systems to develop crops that are more resilient to extreme weather conditions, and in collaboration with northern Indigenous communities creating adaptable growing systems such as passive-solar greenhouses that foster year-round crop production.
