Mitacs is a national, not-for-profit organization that works with post-secondary institutions, companies, and not-for-profit organizations to build partnerships that support industrial and social innovation in Canada. Through this program, Research Manitoba supports local talent development and the training of Manitoba’s highly qualified personnel towards careers in academia or local industry. Through Research Manitoba’s formal partnership with the Mitacs program, Manitoba trainees at all levels can continue their academic training while also working with local companies on industry research and development. Research Manitoba’s funding of Mitacs in Manitoba allows provincial trainees the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and engage with local companies, while also supporting businesses to hire new talent that advances the company’s research and development, and growth.  

Research Manitoba’s Mitacs funding is vital to supporting the recruitment and retention of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) to the province. In Manitoba, Research Manitoba provides the required matching funds to support provincial access to Mitacs programs.
