A brief description of when and why the GHG emissions baseline was adopted:

RRC Polytech took over ownership of the Notre Dame Campus land and buildings in 2016 from the Province of Manitoba. 2017 is the first full calendar year of ownership.

The performance year was selected as the last complete year of normal operations pre-pandemic.

Full-time equivalent of employees 1,525 1,397
Full-time equivalent of students enrolled exclusively in distance education 339.30 277.90
Weighted Campus Users 7,369.30 7,359.73
