The Manitoba Government and Frontier School Division are partnering to expand training opportunities in northern Manitoba by building eight new family homes over the next four years. The Frontier School Division serves much of northern Manitoba including the Cranberry Portage area and the new partnership allows for two family homes per year for the next four years.
Two new homes, one ready to move and one site built, are currently under construction for Cormorant this school year. A ready to move home is being built at the Division’s off campus facility located at Egg Lake south of Cranberry Portage which hosts an engaged learners program that offers alternative education opportunities for students aged 15 to 21.
In 2012 this same partnership resulted in two ready to move three bedroom bungalows which are now home to families with low to moderate incomes in Cranberry Portage.
