If you think orientation is a challenge for the average out-of-town student, consider the adjustment Joanie Brown and Andy Tugak faced when they moved to Winnipeg, population 633,451, from tiny Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, population 2,358, to attend Red River College — with eight kids in tow.

The family was turned away several times by landlords because of its size but eventually the college helped them find a place, says Ms. Brown, 38, who is completing Grade 12 in the Biindigen college-preparatory program at Red River with her spouse.
