Help us help you by researching your occupation before you move
Permanent resident status does not guarantee you employment. It is up to you to find a job and show the employer that you are qualified. It may take months to find a job, or much longer if you must upgrade your qualifications to meet Manitoba standards. If your occupation is regulated you must get a licence to work, and this process can take months or even years.
Research your occupation using the Working in Manitoba Tool
The Working in Manitoba Tool gives you a detailed report on your occupation – job description and duties, wage rates, advertised job openings throughout Manitoba, skill, language and licensing requirements, education, training and bridging programs and helpful resources including career advice from successful immigrants.
To find the latest information and planning tools visit Immigrate Manitoba: Prepare to Move.
