Manitoba government launches engagement on addressing labour shortage through immigration

The Manitoba government invites Manitobans to provide feedback on how immigration could help address labour shortages to understand better their views on this important topic, Advanced Education, Skills and Immigration Minister Jon Reyes announced today.

"Our government recognizes the staffing challenges facing employers, so finding the best ways to tap into the skills and experience that many newcomers have to offer to address the current labour shortage has the potential to lead to a stronger workforce for all Manitobans," said Reyes. "As we continue to develop a full continuum of immigration programs and services, we value the ideas, advice and experiences of others in shaping immigration policies that produce the greatest benefit for all concerned. I encourage all Manitobans to share their ideas via this public engagement survey to help inform this important aspect of public policy."
