Partner Program


100% Participation in the MERLIN Partner Program!

All Manitoba school divisions are participating in the Partner Program. This bundled IT services approach results in real savings in areas of communications, software, Internet and security. MERLIN’s K-12 three-year Partner Program Agreement expired on June 30, 2018. The Agency has extended this Agreement for an additional year (until June 30th, 2019) at the same rate. This will be the fourth year in a row without an increase in fees.

A customized Partner Program is now available to post-secondary institutions.
