Premier announces a new Labour Market Strategy for Immigration

Premier announces a new Labour Market Strategy for Immigration to provide direction for the renewal of the MPNP. The MPNP for Skilled Workers and Business will be renewed with a stronger emphasis on candidates with high potential to meet the Province’s projected labour market needs over the next 5 years, and who can establish higher investment businesses that create jobs for Manitobans. The specific details of changes to MPNP criteria and processes, as well as the new cost recovery model with application fees, will be announced in early 2017 after program changes have been approved by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. For more information, read the complete Government of Manitoba News Release here, and watch this website for future updates.
