Spiring points to highlights that include the new Skilled Trades and Technology Centre at Red River College. "It's an incredible facility that's filling manufacturing job pipelines and we're really proud of that," she said.

Looking ahead, Spiring is optimistic that the National Research Council's advanced manufacturing program will build a Factory of the Future in Winnipeg. "It's a 60,000-square-foot building and a $60-million investment," she said. "The federal government has promised that, and we're trying to shape what it looks like.
