Bis zu 5.000 neue „Manitobans“ versammelt sich morgen auf den Festplätzen von Winklerin, was ein bemerkenswertes Anzeichen von Manitobas neuem Wachstum und Erfolg beim Anwerben von Einwanderern ist.
Das riesige Fest markiert den 10. Jahrestag seit Adele Dyck, ein Pionier der Provinz das sehr erfolgreiche Einwanderungskandidatenprogramm (PNP), begann, um Immigranten zu helfen, sich in Manitoba anzusiedeln. Sie hat in dieser Zeit mehr als 10.000 Menschen bei ihrem Umzug geholfen.
Es wird auch ein Chance, den Immigranten Dankeschön zu sagen, sagte Dyck deren Einwanderungsberatungsgesellschaft, Star 7 International das Ereignis sponsert.
Ich denke, Manitoba sollte dankbar sein, dass diese Leute kamen und hier ihre neues Leben starteten, sie sagte.

UP to 5,000 new Manitobans will gather on the Winkler Fairgrounds tomorrow in what is expected to be a remarkable display of Manitoba's new growth and success in attracting people.
The giant festival marks the 10th anniversary since Adele Dyck, a pioneer of the province's very successful immigration nominee program, began helping immigrants move to Manitoba. She has assisted more than 10,000 people to relocate in that time.
It will also be a chance to say thank-you to the immigrants, said Dyck, whose immigration consulting company, Star 7 International, is sponsoring the event.
"(The newcomers) are the ones who uprooted their families. I think Manitoba should be thankful these people came and restarted their lives here," she said.
The immigration nominee program, which aggressively matches immigrant workers with labour shortages in Manitoba, has been a huge shot in the arm for the Manitoba economy. It has bolstered many communities that were losing population, and provided labour so local industries could grow and not have to leave Manitoba.
The nominee program comprises 60 per cent of total immigration to Manitoba. Manitoba will receive more than 10,000 immigrants in 2006, the highest level in several decades. That compares to just 3,000 in 1998.
"We're feeling good here. The summer has been great," said Alexander Schroeder, who arrived from Germany six years ago with his wife and two sons, without knowing a word of English. He trained as a bricklayer at Red River College, got an apprentice job, and now is a foreman at Euro-Can Enterprises. The Schroeders have also added two daughters to the family.
"We wouldn't go back (to Germany)," Schroeder said.
