The Manitoba government is launching the Work in Manitoba job portal, a website to connect jobseekers and employers in the province.

“We have heard from Manitoba employers that they are struggling to recruit the talent they need to grow their businesses and we are taking concrete action to help them overcome this barrier,” said Economic Development, Investment and Trade Minister Cliff Cullen announced. “The Work in Manitoba job portal is a streamlined website that will enable employers to efficiently connect with local, national and international candidates that meet their labour market needs.”

Platform free for employers, jobseekers

The platform is free for both job seekers and employers, the province said. Candidates can create profiles that capture their skills, experience, education and career preferences. When employers upload job postings, the portal will send notifications to jobseekers with relevant qualifications and goals, it said.

The platform will include jobs from third-party sites and integrate with post-secondary career centres to minimize duplication and maximize resource efficiency, added Cullen.


Real-time data captured

The minister said the platform captures real-time provincewide labour market data, which can be used to develop programs that respond to the needs of underrepresented groups, support the growth of priority sectors and inform immigration strategies.

The new portal builds on an existing job connections website used by Economic Development Winnipeg, which has been used for international recruitment missions for the last two years. The expansion enables all Manitoba employers and job seekers to use the site as well, it said.

“The job opportunities in Manitoba span across all sectors — from manufacturing and transportation to technology and creative industries,” said Dayna Spiring, president and CEO, Economic Development Winnipeg. “The Work in Manitoba job portal is a powerful tool Manitoba employers can use to connect with job seekers not just from Manitoba, but from across Canada and around the world.”
