Dear future neighbour,

Temporary foreign workers in Manitoba have reason to celebrate as a new policy has been implemented to enhance their employment status in Canada.

Yesterday, May 7, 2024, Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced that Manitoba had approached his department, requesting an extension of work status for 6,700 temporary residents whose work permits are set to expire this year. Manitoba asserts that these temporary residents are capable of fulfilling the province’s labor requirements.

Considering this, Immigration Minister Marc Miller has announced the introduction of a new public policy enabling temporary workers in the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) pool to obtain open work permits. Additionally, he anticipates that eligible applicants will receive formal nominations from Manitoba and become permanent residents within the next two years.

Through the enactment of this one-time facilitation measure, Canada seeks to directly benefit prospective nominees by granting them the opportunity to work in Manitoba while their PNP applications are being processed, thereby fostering a positive impact.

According to Minister Miller’s statement, it’s reasonable to expect that an open work permit could be granted for a duration of two years, extending until 2026.
