Province of Manitoba, Canada

استان مانیتبا

Manitoba is one of the western grassland provinces of Canada, which is based on many generations of rich agricultural products. Manitoba is home to Winnipeg, which borders Ontario to the east and Saskatchewan to the west.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) that is a set of immigration programs that enable foreign nationals to become permanent residents of Canada. The PNP is strategically designed to attract migrants to areas of the province that benefit: Skilled labor, labor force in labor-intensive sectors, recent graduates, and agricultural entrepreneurs.

During 2018 and 2019, Manitoba has been making extensive changes to its PNP. All details and planning of changes are placed in the MPNP Reconstruction section of our website. All programs will have changes as some apps close and new streams open.

The province has several immigration programs that fall into the following four categories:

  • Manitoba Skilled Workforce (SWM)
  • Skilled Workforce Abroad (SWO)
  • International Education Program (IES)
  • Business Investor Program (BIS)

Please note that the province has undergone significant changes during 2018. See the MPNP Reconstruction Details section below for more information.

During 2018 and 2019, Manitoba will make significant changes to its PNP flows. These changes are called MPNP Renewal. Note that different changes will take effect at different times, so people who want to request MPNP must pay attention to the different program criteria.

The MPNP restructuring will affect all four categories of migration for the province. Each of these four categories has separate programs that a foreign national may apply for a provincial candidate. The province is introducing a list of jobs required by the MPNP, which will be used to assess the eligibility of candidates for the Manitoba skilled labor force.

See the timeline below for more information on what changes will take place and when.

MPNP Reconstruction Schedule

See the timeline for more information on the planning changes for 2018 and 2019. Please note that the MPNP reserves the right to change the predicted dates without any prior notice.

Skilled workforce in Manitoba

Manitoba Skilled Workforce includes three immigration programs designed to target workers who have already gained work experience or employment offers in Manitoba. Applicants must be currently working and living in Manitoba at the time of their application, or in certain cases, they may be invited to work abroad after attending an MPNP recruitment session.

  • Skilled workforce in Manitoba program
  • Manitoba Experimental Way – Coming Soon
  • The way of direct employment by employers – coming soon

Skilled workforce abroad

Skilled Workforce Abroad includes three immigration programs designed to target skilled workforce that is able to join the Manitoba workforce and easily adapt to life in the province. All the programs of this group prioritize the workforce that has experience in participating in the requested professions.

  • Manitoba Overseas Skilled Workforce Program
  • Manitoba Inter Express Way
  • Manitoba Human Capital Way – Coming Soon

International Education Program

The International Education Program (IES) targets recent graduates of designated post-high school institutions in Manitoba. Candidates for this group must have some work experience or job management experience in the province, or have completed it after graduation or during their study program as part of an internship or work collaboration. There are three routes in this program:

  • Manitoba job path
  • Manitoba Graduate Internship Path
  • Manitoba Student Entrepreneurship Path

Business Investor Program

The Manitoba Business Investor Program (BIS) is a collection of two immigration programs designed for people with job management experience who want to start a new business in Manitoba. The entrepreneurship program is for general entrepreneurs who have job offers in various sectors, while the agricultural investor program is specifically for entrepreneurs working in the agricultural sector.

  • Manitoba Entrepreneur Path
  • Manitoba Agricultural Investor Route

Jobs in demand in Manitoba

Several MPNP programs are preferred by candidates who have work experience in one of the requested jobs in the province listed below. This is a mandatory requirement for all of these programs, but in certain cases gives the candidate an advantage over others to be selected. Please note that those who speak French are exempt from having the job experience required to qualify for MPNP.
