Manitoba has welcomed thousands of newcomers and their families to the province through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) since it was launched in 1998.

And although many consider the MPNP an easier pathway than the federal stream to live and work in Canada, Manitoba Labour and Immigration Minister Malaya Marcelino says the province is facing the highest out-migration rates that we’ve seen in two decades.

Pilipino Express’ Lucille Nolasco-Garrido (PE) recently interviewed Minister Marcelino about the MPNP and the Labour Market Impact Assessment or LMIA.
