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 created 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.
