Manitoba PNP Programs
The provincial government of Manitoba manages its nomination programs through the MPNP. While Canada’s provinces cannot allot permanent resident status to any candidates, they can nominate their profile to the federal government.
To benefit from a nomination from the province, the interested candidates must register their Expression of Interest profile under the MPNP.
The state then ranks the candidates out of 1000 points for several factors like age, experience, qualification, English language proficiency and their connections to the province.
The Skilled Workers in Manitoba category is for candidates already working as temporary residents and meeting its skill requirements.
The Skilled Workers Overseas is for skilled professionals living in another country who wish to live and work in the province as permanent residents.
The International Education category is for international students who have pursued and completed their higher education at an institution within the province and have proven that they have the skills required.
