Advisory Council on Economic Immigration and Settlement

With the release of the Immigration Advisory Council (IAC) report in February 2023, the Government of Manitoba is establishing the Advisory Council on Economic Immigration and Settlement (ACEIS) to inform the implementation of the recommendations of the report.

As it provides advice on a comprehensive, multi-sector strategy for economic immigration and settlement, the Council will give particular consideration to

  • addressing labour shortages and unique labour needs in the capital region and other regions throughout the province;
  • fostering economic development in areas outside the capital region; and
  • maintaining and growing Manitoba's francophone population.

Up to 12 community members who reflect the regional, economic and cultural diversity of Manitoba will be appointed to the Council. Members will serve a 12-month term starting in June 2023 and ending in June 2024. The deadline for applications was midnight on May 26, 2023.
