Manitoba premier Brian Pallister announced on November 25 changes to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) that include a new fee of up to $500 for skilled immigrants who are accepted into the program.

Speaking in Brandon, the premier explained that the changes would improve processing times and fast-track nominations to provide job-ready, skilled workers for the province’s economy. He said there is a backlog in the MPNP that the changes will eliminate by April 2017.
