The University of Lethbridge will receive nearly $1.5 million to create the Centre for Neuroengineering Solutions and nearly $870,000 to establish a work-integrated learning centre for Indigenous youth after the Government of Canada announced $11.2 million in funding for 18 projects in the Lethbridge region.

The Honourable Dan Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan, announced the federal funding, including support for opening a new regional office in Lethbridge.

“The funding the University is receiving from PrairiesCan allows us to become even more connected to our community,” says Dr. Mike Mahon, ULethbridge president and vice-chancellor. “We are excited to increase the opportunities for Indigenous youth to engage in work-integrated learning. On top of that, the neuroengineering centre of excellence will further cement our partnerships and collaborations with local producers and industries.”
