Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)

Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)

 

The Government of Manitoba unveiled its restructured Provincial Nominee Program on November 15, 2017. 

The MPNP is Manitoba’s Provincial Nominee Program. Through this program, prospective immigrants with skills and experience targeted by the province may receive a Manitoba Provincial Nomination Certificate. 

The following are streams that are currently active and/or ones that are being restructured as part of the MPNP renewal process:

    Skilled Worker Immigration Stream - including those in Manitoba and Overseas

    The Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream will consist of two pathways:

    Manitoba Work Experience Pathway

    Employer Direct Recruitment Pathway

    The Skilled Worker Overseas Stream will consist of two pathways:

    Manitoba Express Entry Pathway

    Human Capital Pathway

Manitoba Business Investor Stream

  • Manitoba Farm Investor Pathway
  • Manitoba Entrepreneur Pathway
  • Morden Community Driven Immigration Initiative - through the MPNP

    International Education Stream

    Skilled Worker

    The Skilled Worker categories operate through an 'Expression of Interest' system, whereby eligible candidates complete a series of questions online and are not required to upload supporting documentation before submitting their profile into the EOI pool. Profiles will be placed in the pool with other eligible candidates and you will receive a score based on the answers you provide. The MPNP will then rank you using several factors and if you are among the highest-scoring candidates, you may be invited to submit an application to the MPNP. There are no limits on the number of candidates who can submit an Expression of Interest and no deadline.

    There are currently two streams to Manitoba as a skilled worker, both of which operate under the MPNP Expression of Interest System. As part of the MPNP renewal, the Skilled Worker Immigration Streams will consist of four pathways as explained below.

    Skilled Worker in Manitoba

    Applications are accepted from qualified temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who are currently working in Manitoba and have been offered a permanent, full-time job with their Manitoba employer. Unlike the other connections to Manitoba in the MPNP, Skilled Workers in Manitoba are not subject to a points-based assessment. As part of the MPNP renewal, the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream will consist of two pathways: Manitoba Work Experience and Employer Direct Recruitment.

    Contact us to know more about the eligibility requirements of the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream.

    Manitoba Work Experience Pathway

    This pathway will be open to applicants currently working in Manitoba with temporary work permits, including temporary workers and international graduates of Canadian post-secondary institutions.

    Skilled Worker Overseas
