WINNIPEG – A newly formed organization composed of individuals from various multi-cultural communities held a two-day mobilization activity on February 28 and March 1 at the steps of the Legislative building. Many supporters brought placards expressing their opposition to proposed changes to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). Four members of the Save the MPNP Coalition spoke about what they call the wrong-headed decisions the Manitoba government is making on the immigration front. The group believes the Conservative government’s proposed changes to MPNP will create financial and social barriers for newcomers. When implemented, successful provincial nominees will have to pay a $500 fee as part of their application.
