A new short film that celebrates creativity, joy, playfulness, community, and connection — for people living with dementia and their carers — will make its Brandon debut next week.
The work of 10 Brandon University (BU) undergraduate students is being supported by federal funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
The students are recipients of Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRAs), providing them each with $6,000 from NSERC in addition to $1,500 from BU.
Students receiving the research funding are:
Joshua Broome, Chemistry
Adriano Budzik, Mathematics and Computer Science
Wade Cowie, Physics and Astronomy
Hillary Derewianchuk, Biology
Kimberly Dunthorne, Geography and Environment
Bryce Friesen, Physics and Astronomy
Thomas Friesen, Physics and Astronomy
Keagan Morrison, Biology
Elisha Lisa Tariq, Chemistry
Lacey Winstone, Biology
“Working with their faculty supervisors, our students are participating in first-class research,” said Dr. Bernadette Ardelli, Dean of Science at BU. “These are exciting projects that will help our students develop.
Due to the storm, which has closed campus and is expected to cause power and internet outages, the Senior Student Colloquium and Three-Minute Thesis event scheduled for Thursday, April 14 has been postponed to Thursday, April 28th.

Researchers at Brandon University (BU), Carleton University, Dalhousie University, University of Manitoba, and St. Francis Xavier University have begun collecting data for the Safe Places for Aging and Care project.
The researchers are examining how features of care environments in both home care and personal care homes influence violence.
The Department of Geography and Environment at Brandon University (BU) is excited to host the 44th annual conference of the Prairie Division of the Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) this week.
The event will take place virtually, on Friday and Saturday.
Nine Brandon University (BU) students are getting a boost for their research through increased funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
The students are recipients of this year’s NSERC’s Undergraduate Student Research Awards.
Scientists will test restoration techniques at a large peatland site in southeastern Manitoba as part of a Brandon University (BU) project supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
The work will build upon and inform how existing Canadian-based restoration techniques could be adapted to the drier Manitoba climate.
Some of Manitoba’s top researchers and educators will be honoured at Brandon University’s Spring 2021 Convocation, which is being celebrated virtually this week.
Many highlights will be featured as part of a pre-recorded video Convocation ceremony, which will be posted online Thursday afternoon.
Fifteen upper-years students will present their research as the Senior Colloquium returns to Brandon University (BU) on Monday, April 12.
The Colloquium was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic but will take place online this year, with live presentations to be streamed from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Researchers in Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia seek strategies to improve care environments
Researchers at Brandon University (BU), Carleton University, Dalhousie University, University of Manitoba, and St. Francis Xavier University are undertaking a four-year research project to improve care environments for older adults and those who care for them.
The overall goal of this research is to identify how and why features of care environments influence violence in home and residential care settings with the aim of improving violence prevention strategies across long-term care.
