Manitoba's population is increasing rapidly

Manitoba experienced record inhabitant’s expansion in the last 12 months, growing by 14,007, according to Statistics Canada.

Since the present record-keeping system began in 1971, Manitoba's population has in no way increased so greatly in a 12-month period. The preceding record year was 1983-84 when the populace grew by 13,615.

Andrew Swan, training and trade minister, said that international immigrants are at the back of the population boost up. Manitoba greeted more than 12,000 immigrants between April 2008 and April 2009, another recent record.

Swan said that all citizens of Manitoba should be very pleased that more people are choosing this province as an excellent place to live and work. We are all looking forward to more strong population expansion in the coming years.

The inhabitants’ growth is a direct result of Manitoba's provincial nominee program, which make easy immigration to Manitoba for skilled and enthusiastic workers. In the first year subsequent the beginning of the provincial nominee program in 1998, only 11.2 per cent of immigrants were provincial nominees. At the present, they comprise more than 70 per cent of all the immigrants coming to Manitoba.
