Career and Workforce Development Services
At other schools, Career Services is an office that you can go and visit…
At MITT, career education is a part of everything we do!
How is MITT Career Development Services different than other institutions?
At MITT, career education is part of your curriculum. People choose MITT because we offer short-term programs that lead to employment, and we want to make the transition to your career is as easy as possible.

- While researching their post-secondary options
- To discuss their personal plan prior to starting
- During studies when questions or issues arise
- Whenever they need support, mentorship or professional guidance
For further details, or to book a student advisor appointment, please contact:
For the 2018-19 academic year, MITT was able to provide over 60 bursaries to assist our technical and trades program students meet their living costs while studying full-time. Bursaries are offered in the Fall and Winter each year. For more details and deadlines, please visit MITT Bursaries, Scholarships and Awards
Throughout Manitoba and across Canada, there are many organizations that sponsor scholarships for students. Future and current MITT students are encouraged to research and apply for every scholarship and award opportunity where they meet some or all of the selection criteria. For a full list of entrance scholarships and search tools, please visit MITT Bursaries, Scholarships and Awards
The ideal situation for a student is to cover their tuition and living costs with personal savings and/or family support. This is ideal, but not always possible. However, lack of financial support should not be a barrier to entering full-time studies.
The next best option to help students cover their expenses while studying is a government student loan issued through their province of residence and the Government of Canada.
“I don't want to be in debt when I graduate. I will just keep my job while studying.” Our experience shows that more than 15 hrs/week at a job dramatically reduces the amount of time available for study and success in an MITT program. Finances, time management and successful grades are closely related and one usually impacts the other. A government loan provides a student money but also time to study.
Where to Apply – Students must submit their loan application to their province of residence. Manitoba residents can apply online at www.studentaid.gov.mb.ca. Students from other provinces can find their online application with a quick Google search.
For further information, students can also visit the Canada Student Loans website at www.canlearn.ca.
When To Apply – Students should apply for their loan as early as possible or approximately 2 months before the first day of class. Applying late is not a major problem, but late applications might result in not paying tuition on time or not being able to afford living expenses until later.
Manitoba Student Aid typically posts the online application for the fall/winter school year in early June.
- Immigration Services Advisor provides prospective/current students with legal advice on visa and immigration matters including study permit, Co-op work permit, post-graduation work permit, visitor visa and other Canada visa and immigration matters.
- Immigration Services Advisor provides students with individual consultations, permit application workshops and guidelines to ensure students are supported throughout their studies at MITT.
When should students apply for a study permit? As soon as they receive a Letter of Acceptance!
Study permit authorizes students to study at a designated learning institution in Canada for the duration of the program of study.
Students are required to have a valid study permit if their program is longer than 6 months. Study permit processing at IRCC may take approximately 2 to 9 weeks, depending on the visa office.
Official information can be obtained from the following IRCC webpage: www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/study-canada/study-permit.html
Co-op Work Permit
If Co-op (work practicum) is mandatory to complete a post-secondary program, students must apply for a Co-op work permit. Students may apply for Co-op work permit & study permit together OR apply after receiving study permit.
Official information can be obtained from the following IRCC webpage:
Post-Graduation Work Permit
Students who have graduated from MITT’s post-secondary program would be eligible for a post-graduation work permit, as long as they meet the eligibility criteria specified by IRCC. Depending on the length of the program, post-graduation work permit would be for 1 year or 3 years.
Official information can be obtained from the following IRCC webpage:
