Canada MPNP has welcomed 1.30 lakh immigrants in the last 20 years. Manitoba’s Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program is celebrating its 20th year of launch.
MPNP was launched in 1998. Manitoba became the first province in Canada to nominate immigrants for permanent resident Canada. This is through streams customized to its economic priorities and needs.
Majority of the territories and provinces in Canada have now followed the initiative of Manitoba. They all have an individual PNP – Provincial Nominee Program. The only exception is Quebec province. It has a special agreement for immigration with the Federal Government of Canada.
After its inception in 1998, MPNP has been the chief propellant of the net positive growth of population. This is for the Manitoba province and especially after 2006, as quoted by the CIC News.
Manitoba has said that its GDP would have been 30% lower today. This is if it had not accepted the 1.30 lakh immigrants through the MPNP program. The economic benefits of these immigrants have been immense for the province. The immigrants who have arrived via the Business streams have invested 308$ million plus in the province.
The Manitoba province has said that a remarkable 90% of these 1.30 lakh immigrants have got a job within 1 year. Roughly around the same % also stay in the province, it added.
The MPNP has been regularly being updated by the Manitoba province in the last 20 years. It had launched a nomination stream for Overseas Business Immigrants in 2001. The province has also added fresh streams for skilled workers in the following years.
The complete overhaul of the MPNP in November 2017 was the culmination of the innovation by the province.
