Acquiring Canadian permanent residence through the PNP is a 2-step process. After securing a PNP nomination, the next step is that of applying – to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] – for Canada PR.
To be eligible for the Skilled Worker Overseas pathway, an “established connection to Manitoba” must be demonstrated by the applicant. This connection can be established through –
- an invitation received directly from the MPNP as part of the Strategic Recruitment Initiative,
- the support of friends or family members in Manitoba, or
- possessing previous education or work experience in Manitoba.
For the Skilled Workers in Manitoba pathway, on the other hand, a “strong connection” to Manitoba will be needed. This can be through  an ongoing employment, and  possessing sufficient skills, education, official language proficiency, and work experience for making an “immediate and ongoing contribution to the Manitoba economy” and the community in general.
The MPNP’s International Education Stream [IES] is targeted at Manitoba graduates. The IES provides international students – graduating in Manitoba and meeting the industry requirements – faster pathways to immigration.
There are 3 separate pathways under the IES of the MPNP –
- International Student Entrepreneur Pilot
- Graduate Internship Pathway
- Career Employment Pathway
Do keep in mind that an international student graduating from another Canadian province will not be eligible for the IES. Such individuals, however, might be eligible to apply under the Skilled Worker in Manitoba stream.
|For 2021, Manitoba has received an annual allotment of 5,400 base nomination spaces. Another 875 Express Entry spaces available.
So far, a total of 8,041 have been invited by the MPNP altogether in the 21 MPNP draws held in 2021.
