IMMIGRATE TO MANITOBA

Manitoba has smaller cities, prairie landscapes, giant blue skies, northern forests, and a climate that varies between extremes of very hot summers and very cold winters. Manitoba’s northern border meets with Hudson Bay and is considered the Polar Bear Capital of Canada. Much of Manitoba’s economy is connected to natural resources in the north and agriculture in the south – notably sunflower seeds, beans and potatoes. The cost of living in Manitoba is generally lower than other Provinces in Canada.

MANITOBA PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM
