Friendly Manitoba

Manitoba is the easternmost of three prairie provinces in Canada. Manitoba is bordered by Saskatchewan to the west, Nunavut to the north, Ontario to the east and U.S. states North Dakota and Minnesota to the south. The province’s name comes from an Indian word meaning “the God who speaks.”

The estimated population of Manitoba is 1.3 Million. Winnipeg is Manitoba’s largest city and the capital. The province has a range of resources to draw upon, which has allowed it to diversify its economic base. Numerous mineral deposits, including nickel, copper, gold, lead, silver, cadmium, and zinc, make mining a vital part of the economy. Manufacturing has overtaken agriculture as the largest sector of the province’s economy. The traditional industries are chiefly involved with resource processing: meatpacking, flour milling, and the production of lumber, pulp, and paper. Distilling, printing, textile manufacture, and nickel and copper ore smelting also remain important. Skilled workers, trade people, and professionals are an essential part of Manitoba economy. That is why Manitoba was the first Canadian province to establish its own immigration program, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program.

It welcomes recent graduates, skilled workers, business people and their families who have the intention and ability to establish in Manitoba as permanent residents economically.

There are many programs under MPNP.

The latter two bodies of water are separated by the narrow neck of the Chignecto Isthmus, which joins New Brunswick to Nova Scotia, to the southeast. To the west lies the U.S. state of Maine.

The discovery in New Brunswick of rich deposits of zinc and potash in the second half of the 20th century elevated the importance of mining in the provincial economy. The bulk of manufacturing industries in New Brunswick produce food products, paper, and wood products. Firms also manufacture metal goods, mineral products, and machinery. A number of small computer software companies operate in several of the province’s cities as well. Tourism is a leading service industry, as the province’s natural and cultural attractions, including many picturesque drives, draw many visitors. The province’s advanced telephone system and bilingual workforce have attracted a telemarketing industry with call centers in several towns and cities.

Like many other Canadian provinces and territories, New Brunswick has its own immigration program streams and eligibility criteria targeting skilled workers, entrepreneurs, international graduates.

Lacking a local source of natural gas and oil, Prince Edward Island has been heavily reliant on imported sources of energy. The processing of frozen fried potatoes, green vegetables, and berries is a leading business activity.

Tourism constitutes a large portion of the services sector on Prince Edward Island. Annually about one million visitors, including cruise ship travellers, contribute to the island’s economy and social life.

With this “oceanic pump” effect, the onset of the seasons is delayed several weeks when compared with continental Canada. Measurable snowfalls are common over the long winter season from November to April.
