Manitoba in Canada's 'economic elite'; analysts credit MPNP

Strong economic growth continues to benefit the people of Manitoba, according to new government and private-sector statistics and projections which show the province job growth and economic expansion is keeping Manitoba at the top tier of all Canadian provinces.

For example, the latest consensus forecast from nine key private-sector forecasters is that Manitoba will post the fourth best economic performance in all of Canada in 2015.

The benefit is seen throughout the province and in Manitoba's capital city, Winnipeg, which has grown by 55,000 people over the past 10 years, with credit for the dramatic improvement going to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).
