130,000 immigrants came to Manitoba via MPNP over 20 years

Over the last two decades, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) brought in more than 130,000 economic immigrants to Manitoba of whom more than 20% established themselves in regional communities throughout the province. Manitoba received approximately 70,000 additional immigrants through federal programs during the same period of whom only 11% chose communities outside of Winnipeg. In 2017, MPNP successfully eliminated a backlog of close to 4000 applications, many with processing times of more than two years, to a new standard where every complete MPNP application is processed in less than six months. In 2018, MPNP issued 5119 skilled worker nominations, the highest number in MPNP history. In addition, more than 78.6% of these nominees were already connected to a Manitoba employer. Finally, 28.8% of the nominations were for 93 different communities outside of Winnipeg. #Manitoba, #MPNP
