Destination Canada 2023

Employers with job openings in Manitoba in these sectors are invited to apply to participate. Click here for a list of approved occupations for which employers may recruit candidates. For these recruitment events, the employer must participate directly and cannot be represented.

Thanks to a state-of-the-art tool that matches the needs expressed in the job postings with the experience and skills of the registered candidates, a list of qualified candidates will be proposed for each position. Employers will have access to their profile, their CV and a pre-recorded video presentation. A platform will be made available to organize interviews with the candidates they wish to meet. The interviews with the candidates will take place at the dates and times they wish, from February 20 to March 31, 2023.

Participating employers will also be invited to attend an online information forum to present their company to candidates. Destination Canada ITC will take place on March 14, 2023 and Destination Canada Tourism-Hospitality-Culinary will take place on March 20 and 21, 2023.

Participation is free of charge but the number of places is limited. Employers can register here from Monday, January 30 to Thursday, February 16, 2023. The MPNP will provide any necessary support to employers and interested candidates should they require it. If you are a Manitoba employer and have registered to participate in either edition, please advise us by sending an email to immigreraumanitoba@gov.mb.ca with the subject line "Destination Canada 2023 Employer Registration".
