My Learning at Home / Mon apprentissage chez moi

English / French / Immersion

On April 9, 2020, the province launched a supplemental online resource for Manitoba families whose children are learning at home during the suspension of in-school classes because of COVID-19. The Web portal is a comprehensive resource to supplement learning, designed to assist families in supporting the work of teachers as they continue to educate students. Available in English and French as well as for families in French immersion, My Learning at Home will grow over time as more resources are developed for Kindergarten through Grade 12.
