Student Membership


The Manitoba Association of Home Economists can benefit you through provincial conferences and local events and provides the opportunity for members to network with others in the profession. This can lead to information sharing, valuable professional contacts, possible job contracts, and the development of friendships. MAHE regularly receives job notices relevant to our members. MAHE notifies members electronically about new job postings.
