Manitoba is trying to help fill a skills shortage by recruiting workers from the crippled countries of Europe.
Provincial officials will be interviewing candidates for its “southern Europe recruitment mission” in Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain this month, looking for temporary and permanent workers.
It’s part of what is known as the Manitoba provincial nominee program, and this recruitment drive in particular is being launched “with the co-operation of Manitoba employers and the Greek, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese cultural communities,” the government says in its pitch to potential workers.
Manitoba is looking for people, between the ages of 21 and 45, for “pre-arranged jobs in industry, business, service, trades and other skilled occupations,” it says, noting the program is based on a reconfigured points system.
