Mitacs is a not-for-profit organization that provides opportunities to participate in research and training programs both at the University of Manitoba and internationally. Mitacs runs its own programs, but the International Centre provides some supports to students going abroad with Mitacs, and to Globalink Research Interns coming to the University of Manitoba.
