Thanks guys!!
It's very exciting.
Now we have to think of the perfect 'thank you' gift for our original Sponsor (Husband's Aunt in Calgary). Not just my cooking when we're finally there . I'm pretty sure all she wants is single malt whiskey!

Good luck to everyone else still waiting.

We have now had confirmation that the additional medical information has been received and is currently being reviewed. The email states that we should have a decision within the next week
Great to hear, now keeping fingers crossed that this week only has 7 days

Default Re: Manitoba's Immigration numbers down 2012

Hi,

Interesting news feed from CBC reference immigration to MB.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manito...-manitoba.html

Seems federal Gov has imposed a cap of 5000 per year, and favours single applicants rather than families. This may be one of the reasons why MPNP PR applications are taking longer to process? It looks like the federal government is selecting applicants according to the size of the family rather on a first come first served basis. Lest hope we are one of the 5000 this year, mind you we might not be a priority as we are a family of 4!

Regards

Andrew

Hi Andrew, think you interpreted that article slightly wrong.
Quota for Manitoba has been since years 5000 main applicants...so nothing new there. What they are saying is, that in previous years that resulted in 15,000 people coming in, while in 2012 it only made it to 13,000 and some.
So the theory is, that less big families arrived here (families of 10 are not unknown for the mennonites, who have largely moved into the Steinbach/Winkler area) in 2012. Also, it has been made easier for students to apply to PNP after their studies (if studies were done in MB that is), so lots of them are still single?
Generally I always felt that families are embraced...after all...kids are our future?
Don't think federal or provincial has ever selected on first come first serve basis, it's the skill set you bring along and all the other requirements asked for.
One major change will/has been already implemented though, with the federals taking over settlement services now..which was before provincial territory (rural areas still have this year under provincial jurisdiction, while bigger centres are under federal with start of April 1): Settlement services will mean in the future ONLY help with settling once you are PR...no service for ppl with only WP or PNP. Which sucks big time, because this is what ruraly we mostly have been doing. It is dumb as well, if you ask me...because if ppl are prior in the country with WP and/or PNP, they don't need much help anymore when they get their PR...they need the help when arriving, no matter which visa.

So the centre in Wpg who helped with PNP applications just closed. Now they are saying that the Province will help by offering some service in the PNP office...which might end up in delay with other things?! The federal politic has made it in the last few years tougher and tougher..always adding another little thing here and there. Heard already first rumors that federal is saying family reuniting should only happening through the federal family stream (which is way more stringent at the moment than the Manitoba one). That most likely would cause much harm to the MP program. grrr...don't get me started .

Just one comment. The Feds supplied Settlement Funds to Manitoba to administer the program. These settlement funds are for language training and integration of new Immigrants into Canada. Manitoba used the funding to run their PNP rather than for the purpose that they were intended for. The Feds took away that funding and Manitoba is expected to fund it's PNP program on it's own, the same as every other province.

Thanks Vettemaster, had a look and some are really nice. I saw some on another thread on here and some looked nice there also, they were mostly full of snow.
Whats happening with you? How is the house getting on? Im guessing no news yet on application? Hope you get some good news soon .
Things are getting very close for us, still have not booked the flight but will in the next week or so. Its a very weird feeling leaving everything at this stage, seemed a bit more straightforward previously, just packed and went , now there's a little more organization needed .
Have the dog crate and he is getting in and out of it and is having rabies shots next week

Hi Violets, Pleased you liked the link I have been a forum member on that site for over a year, but did not think of posting some links to the pictures before. It is a very interesting site, with pictures of buildings and cities from all over the world.

We have heard not a single thing since the email. I guess like Ilse said, how long is that week we have to wait?? 7 day week or more

I bet your watching those flight prices
