Manitoba, a Canadian Province, has reopened Provincial Nominee Program to attract skilled professionals from across the world. The program will extend Canadian permanent residency to candidates and their dependents willing to migrate, work and settle in Manitoba permanently.
Interested people can send their applications and express their willingness to move to Manitoba on a Canadian PR. Those who have friends or family or have good work experience in a profession that is in demand, or hold Manitoba education are eligible to apply. However, candidates will also have to meet other eligibility criteria.
The program is reopened with improvements in the overall processing system – the application management will be better, faster and there would not be intake pauses. The immigration department will be able to quickly respond to the applicants about eligibility or ineligibility of their profile.
The first step to apply under Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) would be to submit an ‘Expression of Interest.’ The applications of those who meet the eligibility criteria will be placed in a pool and thereafter ranked as per their language, skills, age, work experience, education qualifications, etc. The highest ranking applicants will be sent an invitation to apply asking them to submit a complete application to the MPNP.
On receiving a complete application, the PR would be processed within few months. This time MPNP is going the Express Entry way – a program introduced by CIC in January this year to help skilled professionals find jobs and migrate to Canada on a PR.
One can file for MPNP throughout the year, but should meet the eligibility criteria and must be from an occupation that is in demand in Manitoba’s labour market.
