All new international students starting classes must attend orientation events. During the welcome week you will learn more about what to expect during your studies at MITT and get to know the campus, as well as meet staff and fellow students and explore the city of Winnipeg.

Most events start at our Henlow Campus, 130 Henlow Bay, in the Delta Room at 9:00 a.m. Punctuality is important – we are working on Canadian time! Check out a map and parking information, and look up how to get here on the bus.


Students from visa-exempt countries like Korea, Japan, Singapore, Chile and the UK now need to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization to enter Canada.
