Olds College has been given more than $21 million in provincial funding for capital maintenance and to redevelop two existing buildings.

The college received $15.2-million to expand the Lachlin McKinnon Building into the new Animal Health Education Centre and $6.2 million to redevelop the James Murray Building into the Ag-Tech Learning Hub that will house the Werklund School of Agriculture Technology. The latter will launch its first two programs this fall.

Renovation of both facilities will begin immediately, with the Ag-Tech Learning Hub opening in fall 2022 and the Animal Health Education Centre opening in fall 2023.
