Information for Guidance Counsellors

Welcome! This page has been developed to provide all of our educational partners with the information they need to assist students to successfully become UWinnipeg students.


Counsellor Resources



For those of you in or near Manitoba, there are several campus events throughout the year that we would like you to be aware of. These events are intended to give students a chance to come to the campus, gather information and make informed decisions about their future. These events are also a great opportunity for us to share information and answer any questions you may have.

Counsellors' Update
This seminar is developed for guidance counsellors in Manitoba to learn about new programs and policy changes, important updates for admissions, awards & financial aid, and scholarships.

Future Student Night
This evening event provides prospective students an opportunity to talk with deans, professors, current students and staff to learn more about The University of Winnipeg. This event is open to everyone and anyone interested in learning more about UWinnipeg.

Open House
This event allows students in grades 10-12 and their parents an opportunity to see interactive displays and talk with deans, professors, current students and staff about their future at The University of Winnipeg. This event is also geared toward students who are still thinking about which university they would like to attend.
