Manitoba Immigration Programs
The province organizes its immigration programs through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), which supports the immigration application of the federal government. Provinces do not have the power to offer permanent residency status to the immigrant. However, they can help the applicant by issuing provincial nominations.
If you wish to receive a nomination from Manitoba then first, you need to start with registering an expression of interest with MPNP. This will help you receive an LAA through Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
After this, the province evaluates the profile out of 1000 points for their human capital factors as well as their connections to the province. The streams are exclusively designed to allow the province to have access to the foreign talent who meets the labour needs.
Immigration candidates need to exhibit connections to the federal province of Manitoba through the likes of family ties, previous experience, or an invitation from Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. One requires a full-time job from the provincial employer in order to receive an invitation under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba.
