The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
The MPNP allows the province to nominate foreign workers and international graduates of its post-secondary institutions for Canadian permanent residence through its three popular immigration pathways – Skilled Worker in Manitoba, Skilled Worker Overseas and International Education Stream.
In order to be considered for immigration to Manitoba under one of these three categories, candidates must create an EOI profile, which is then given a score out of 1,000 based on various factors including education, work experience, connections to Manitoba and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.
A set number of the highest-scoring candidates are then invited to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws.
Manitoba has now issued total 2,634 LAAs to immigration candidates so far in 2020.
