Winnipeg, MB – MLA Obby Khan is pleased to announce over $86.2 million in funding
for the Pembina Trails School Division in 2023/24. Our government is pleased to
provide this funding which totals a $10 million increase in funding over last year’s
“I’m thrilled that our PC government is increasing operating funding,” said MLA Obby
Khan. “Our government has always placed a high value on the education of the children
in Manitoba. Every single school division is seeing an increase this year.”
Manitoba ranks as one of the highest per pupil funding in Canada and this year’s
funding announcement will ensure that we maintain that position. School divisions will
be receiving a 6.1% increase in their annual funding for the 2023/24 school year. This
investment helps divisions deal with unforeseen cost pressures. This investment is
higher than the projected rate of inflation for 23/24 and builds on the historic
investments made over the last two years. While funding is allocated by the Province,
school divisions are ultimately responsible for making spending decisions that best
support their local needs.
