Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
Manitoba is called the Gateway to Western Canada as its located between the provinces of Ontario and Saskatchewan. It has a predominantly agrarian and natural resources-based economy which is a huge contributor to Canada’s wealth.
Manitoba’s Provincial Nominee Program (MPTP) enables potential immigrants with the requisite skills and work experience to receive the Manitoba Provincial Nomination Certificate which fastens the permanent residence application process.
Which are the categories included in the MPNP?
Many streams are currently active, and many are in the process of being restructured. Below is their outline:
Skilled Workers Category
In the Skilled Worker category, there is an ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) process in which the eligible candidates first submit their profile into the EOI pool. A consolidated score is allocated to each candidate based on various parameters, who are then ranked. Highly ranked candidates are invited to apply under MPNP. Two streams are present under which you can apply for permanent residency in Manitoba as a Skilled Worker:
In this category, the temporary foreign workers and international student graduates working in Manitoba can apply for permanent residency. They need to be employed with a Manitoba employer in a permanent and full-time job or should have a valid job offer.
Two new pathways have been created in this stream which are scheduled to come into effect in late 2018; Employer Direct Recruitment and Manitoba Work Experience.
