About Us

The Rural Manitoba Immigrant Employment Council (RMIEC) is guided through the strategic direction of an Advisory Committee and hosted by a not-for-profit organization.

The RMIEC provides Rural MB employers with solutions, tools, and resources they need to attract, hire and retain qualified immigrant talent. We believe that the successful integration of skilled newcomers into the Rural MB labour force is critical to both their success and the province’s long-term economic performance.

We work with employers, government, and other partner stakeholders to ensure that Rural MB employers can effectively integrate global talent.

Mission

We help rural employers attract, hire, and retain immigrant talent.

Vision

See more rural employers grow their business, and see more internationally trained professionals settle and integrate to build thriving rural communities, and grow a stronger Manitoba economy.
