Immigration programs in Manitoba
Manitoba conducts a few immigration programs meant to attract skilled and talented international candidates to become residents of the province. The MPNP is the body that supports the management of applications for immigration submitted to the federal government. Since provincial governments don’t have the power to grant Canada PR, they play an assistive role in bringing in bright candidates who settle in the respective province.
Anyone interested in benefitting from a Manitoba nomination must first register an EOI with the MPNP. This sets an opportunity to get an LAA via the immigration streams of Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Workers in Manitoba.
These profiles are then ranked by Manitoba PNP out of 1,000 points. They consider human capital factors to determine the score. The candidate’s connection with the province of Manitoba is also considered. The connection could be a work experience in Manitoba, a close family relation, or an invitation via one of the strategic initiatives of Manitoba.
The candidates must have a full-time job offer from an employee in the province under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category.
International graduates from Manitoba can get their LAA under the International Education Stream. For this, they are required to demonstrate that they have the in-demand skills the province is looking for.
