Each year, many newcomers find their way to Manitoba in Canada by securing a nomination by the province – on the basis of their connection to the community, education, and skills – under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program [MPNP].
|The MPNP offers a pathway to Canadian permanent residence to skilled workers and entrepreneurs, as well as their families.
An Express Entry candidate that is successful in securing a PNP nomination is allotted 600 additional points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System [CRS] score.
A PNP nomination is a guarantee of receiving an invitation to apply [ITA] by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] in the next federal draw to be held.
The MPNP has various immigration pathways leading to Canada PR, each targeted at a specific class of immigrants. The categories available under the MPNP are –
- the Skilled Worker Stream [includes skilled workers within Manitoba and overseas]
- Business Investor Stream, and
- International Education Stream [IES].
An “established connection” to Manitoba will be required by a skilled worker applying from overseas under the MPNP’s Skilled Worker stream.
