Manitoba was the first Canadian province to establish its own immigration program, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program. The government of Manitoba projects a labour shortage of over 20,000 skilled workers by the year 2020. 85% of all Manitoba nominees find work within three months after arrival. 76% become homeowners within five years and 95% of families settle permanently in the community. These factors make Manitoba an attractive destination for potential immigrants looking to settle in Canada. Moreover, the Manitoba province has issued over 6000 nominations in the previous year.
