Mom & Baby ESL Program / MITT's Erin Campus
Students enrolled at the Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology have access to the following:

Counselling is available to help day and evening students adjust to their new life and to create a supportive environment. The counselling includes information on services and programs for immigrants as well as guidance to aid in their successfully adapting to a new culture.
Computer-Assisted Language Learning
This is an interactive class for MITT students that incorporates the use of the computer as well as computer-based resources to facilitate and reinforce language learning. Some examples of computer-assisted language learning are:
- preparing presentations
- exploring web-based resources
Child Care (available at the Pembina location)
Fort Garry Child Care Centre Co-op is a licensed childcare facility. There are spaces reserved for children of Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology staff and students.
Students may receive a student card when they are enrolled. The student card includes a photograph of the student and the photo is taken at the Institution. A student card can be used for student discounts at some stores and to purchase a post-secondary bus pass.
Post-Secondary Bus Passes
Students attending MITT who have received a student card can purchase a post-secondary bus pass through the Institute. The student bus pass costs 20% less than a regular adult bus pass.
Both locations are easily accessible using public transportation.
