Christopher Navarro's immigration application was supported by a job offer and the fact that he has family in Manitoba.
Christopher Navarro was subsequently allowed to stay after his application was accepted through the Manitoba Nominee Program. His wife and children joined him last year.
This is the first time we were able to celebrate Christmas and New Year together, because most of the time when I was working abroad , I had to miss every Christmas, every New Year, every birthday of my children, he says.
He adds that his application for immigration through the Manitoba Nominee Program was supported by a job offer from his sister, who owns Baker's Bowl. p>
Mr. Navarro is excited that the Manitoba Nominee Program will choose more people who have ties to Manitoba.
Jodie Byram, spokesperson for the opposition in matters of labor and Immigration, hopes, for its part, that family reunification will not become the main objective of this program.
As labor shortages in the health, education and skilled trades sectors continue to worsen in Canada, Manitoba cannot afford to abandon the economic objective of the provincial nominee program, she said by email.
