Destination Canada Mobility Forum 2022

If you are a Manitoba employer who is interested in recruiting overseas, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) can represent your business and job opportunities at the upcoming Destination Canada Mobility Forum. This year, the MPNP is partnering with Economic Development Winnipeg (EDW), and we encourage you to sign up for an upcoming orientation session to learn how we can help you find solutions to your labour needs, free of charge.

The MPNP, in partnership with EDW and other community partners, will be participating in the upcoming Government of Canada's Destination Canada Mobility Forum, a recruitment fair for bilingual skilled workers in Paris, France and Rabat, Morocco from November 16 to 23, 2022.

Every year, the Canadian government organizes this event to connect Canadian employers in predominantly Anglophone provinces with skilled bilingual candidates from a variety of industries.
