The UFCW 832 Training Centre

With locations in both Winnipeg and Brandon and a variety of learning tracks,  our Training Centre is a resource for members, their families and their communities. 


The UFCW Training Centre empowers our members through education so they can meet their full potential, find their voice, and recognize the influence they have in their workplace, community and across the province.

UFCW Activists at the Brandon Training Centre


There are two UFCW 832 Training Centre locations in Manitoba, situated in the heart of Winnipeg and Brandon to serve our members in those communities. 

Winnipeg Training Centre
880 Portage Avenue
Winnipeg, MB R3G 0P1

Brandon Training Centre
530 Richmond Avenue E.
Brandon, MB R7A 7J5


Though its focus has shifted with the changing needs and interests of members, the UFCW 832 Training Centre opened in the nineties on the principle of providing accessible education.

  • Union Activists can learn more about how to be effective Shop Stewards and Health & Safety Committee members.
  • Union members can be certified in First Aid, receive career transition support when laid off or workplaces close, or take on additional general training and/or receive funding for post-secondary education for themselves or their children. 
  • The public can update their Adult High School education, advance their skills in English as an additional language or become certified as a Manitoba Security Guard.
