University Facts and Statistics: University of Manitoba

Founded in 1877, the University of Manitoba is the oldest institution of higher learning in Western Canada and currently has more Rhode Scholars than any other Western Canadian university. Forty-one specialized research facilities are located on-campus that not only engage in research but also in the education and training of students; however, the University is most famous for its work in medicine, especially in the areas of cardiology, cancer, and infectious diseases, including a global research program on HIV and AIDS. The University is associated with the adjacent Health Sciences Centre and St. Boniface General Hospital, both of which serve as facilities for clinical research and medical training for students of the University of Manitoba. The University is actively engaged in the commercialization of research via an industrial liaison officer who links the post-secondary institution with the private sector. In 1974, the school spawned what is now an industry worth over $30 billion a year when it discovered the first edible canola plant.
