More room for Manitoba students in Western College of Veterinary Medicine: Education minister

Manitoba's Minister for Advanced Education, Skills and Immigration Jon Reyes announced on Thursday that a new agreement with the Western College of Veterinary Medicine has raised the available spots for Manitoba students from 15 to 20. Reyes says he hopes that the expansion will help accommodate candidates arriving in Canada from other countries. To accommodate the extra Manitoba students, the province is increasing its annual funding contribution to the Western Canada Veterinary Medicine by $539,200, to a total of $7 million.
