Manitoba immigration programs
Manitoba manages its immigration programs through the MPNP, which supports immigration applications to the federal government. The provincial nominations issued can help in the Canada PR application and get permanent residency status.
In order to get a nomination from Manitoba, the candidate needs to register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. This puts you in a position to receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
Manitoba ranks candidates out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors, as well as their connections to the province.
The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba streams are designed to allow the province to identify candidates who meet its labour market needs.
Candidates overseas need to show proof of connections to Manitoba through the likes of close family ties, previous experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. However, being a resident of Manitoba at the time of application is not mandatory.
A full-time job offer from a provincial employer is required in order to receive an invitation under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category.
International graduates who complete education in Manitoba can receive an invitation under the International Education Stream if they can demonstrate that they have in-demand skills.
