Marc Miller Canada’s Immigration Minister has approved a request by the government of Manitoba to extend temporary resident status for some nominees identified in the province’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

IRCC Update: All nominees, mainly Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) holders, have work permits expiring in 2024. They’re part of the Manitoba Skill Worker Program pool, targeting job vacancies in the province.

Temporary workers means that 6,700 may continue the process  while working ,and the province continues to process their PNP application. The province expects that “eligible foreign nationals will receive an official nomination from Manitoba and eventually become permanent residents” within two years.

the Immigration, refugee & citizenship Canada. guidelines  says it is open to working with other Canadian provinces & territories to help in  more temporary residents into permanent residents to address national labor market needs.

More information may be available following a meeting of the Federation of Ministers Responsible for Immigration (FMRI) on May 10.

Manitoba’s PNP

The province introduced the program in  1998, Manitoba became the first province in Canada to start a program called the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This program was create to bring in new people who might usually move to big cities like Toronto or Vancouver. Manitoba wanted to attract them to come and live in their province instead.

The idea of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) worked really well in Manitoba. It helped share the good things that come from immigration across the province. After seeing this success, all other provinces and territories in Canada, except for Quebec & Nunavut, decided to do the same thing. They wanted to bring in more people to help their communities grow too.

Data also shows that 10,000 people in Manitoba transitioned from worker status to permanent residents in 2023.

In January & March this year, the province issued 1,560 Expressions of Interest to Skilled Worker candidates leading to 1,478 approvals.

In 2022, 20% of permanent residents came through the PNP. Canada aims to welcome 110,000 new permanent residents by 2024 and 120,000 annually from 2025 to 2026.

Changes to temporary resident levels

This is unique in Canada’s immigration space & aligns with a previously announce priority for the year and in years to come. On March 21st this year, Minister Miller announced an intention to pursue more domestic draws to help transition temporary residents to permanent residents.

In Another way, IRCC plans to work with newcomers already in Canada to help them become permanent residents, rather than increasing the previously uncapped number of temporary residents who arrive in Canada each year. 2023 Canada had a temporary resident population exceeding 2.5 million people, or 6.2% of the total population.

on 2023, 157,000 people transitioned from temporary residents to permanent residents.
