Posted on Posted in Immigration Options, PNP

Where the spirit lives” – Manitoba is surrounded by the wilderness and massive provincial parks. Polar bears, white-tailed deer and wolves are common in this province. Rich in cultural history, this central province neighbors Ontario and Saskatchewan.

Manitoba accepts application for the following categories  via both through Express Entry and outside Express Entry:

  • Skilled Workers
    • Skilled Workers in Manitoba
    • Manitoba Skilled Worker Overseas
  • Business Investor Stream
    • Entrepreneur Pathway
    • Farm Investor Pathway

Skilled Workers

    • Skilled Workers in Manitoba

Under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category, applications are accepted from qualified temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who are currently working in Manitoba and have been offered a permanent 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 to determine their eligibility.

    • Manitoba Skilled Worker Overseas

The Manitoba Skilled Worker overseas category uses a points-based system to assess overseas or foreign candidates. Points are awarded for factors such as age, language proficiency, work experience, education and adaptability. Manitoba uses a unique point allocation system with a pass mark of 60, in contrast to the FSWP, which assigns points differently and has a pass mark of 67.

Applications are accepted from qualified skilled workers who can demonstrate a strong connection to the province through family or friends, past education or employment, or by invitation of the MPNP, and be assessed sufficient points for five eligibility factors: age, language proficiency, work experience, education and adaptability.

Business Investor Stream

    • Entrepreneur Pathway

This stream supersedes the previously known MPNP-B stream (Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program for Business). It allows the province to nominate and recruit qualified personnel wanting to start a business in Manitoba. The intention is to create more jobs for Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents in Manitoba. Candidates must pursue the business within 24-months of arrival in Manitoba on a temporary work permit

    • Farm Investor Pathway

This stream supersedes the previously known Farm Strategic Recruitment Initiative. It is targeted more towards those with the financial capacity and farm business knowledge and experience, and wish to start and run a farm operation in rural Manitoba
