  • Who We Are

    Welcome to the Louis Riel Arts & Technology Centre (LRATC)

    Our dedicated staff will provide you with many challenges and opportunities for growth. We are committed to providing students with relevant programs in an environment that encourages strong working relationships with staff—essential ingredients to student success. LRATC programs are up-to-date, and based on effective teacher-led instruction. Our programs enable students to begin and, in some cases, complete their post-secondary education while in high school. Many students choose to attend LRATC following high school graduation, with most eligible for a significant reduction in tuition fees.

    We provide a unique service for students who wish to earn a Provincial Mature Student High School Diploma in addition to their LRATC program certificate by offering provincially approved English, Math, and History high school credits.

    We take pride in the success of our graduates many of whom have successfully entered the workforce upon program completion. Many others have pursued industry-led training programs or further college or university education.

    Our staff work closely with industry advisory groups and maintain active partnerships to ensure that programs are relevant to student needs and compliant with business and industry standards. LRATC and business/industry partnerships also benefit students by assisting them in developing meaningful connections and facilitating transitions for employment. At LRATC, your success is our primary concern; we are dedicated to serve the needs of the learner community. We invite you to join us in an exciting and dynamic educational experience.
