The Prairie Province, Manitoba, popularly known as “Gateway to Western Canada,” is open for welcoming immigrants.  

As per the recent survey, Manitoba’s labor market is thriving to hire candidates to fill the vacant positions. Manitoba is the largest contributor to Canada’s economy as it has a large manufacturing sector. Hence, most of the immigrants consider this Prairie province as a great place to get permanent residence. Candidates can migrate to Manitoba through various economic immigration programs.

 “We are focused on Manitoba’s recovery, and budget 2021 set aside nearly $1.2 billion for the ongoing COVID-19 response and to prepare the province for future economic shocks and challenges. Although our focus is to continue to protect Manitobans through the ongoing pandemic, we have made a commitment to once again return to balance within the next eight years,”  said Scott Fielding, the province’s finance minister, in late September.
