Manitoba's Special Immigration Draw

As an act of kindness, Manitoba, a province in Canada has warmly invited Ukrainians who are displaced from their country due to the ongoing conflict. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) conducted a special draw on March 26, 2024, where it accepted 179 Ukrainians offering them an opportunity for Canada permanent residency.

It is the 24th draw that the province of Manitoba has conducted aimed at assisting those affected by the Ukraine crisis. This initiative is consistent with a temporary public policy established by the Federal Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), which took effect on October 23rd, 2023, and targeted at reuniting families affected by Russian aggression.

Eligibility Criteria for Ukrainian Candidates


To qualify for the special MPNP draw, Ukrainian applicants must meet specific criteria tailored to their circumstances:

  • Ukrainian Citizenship: The program solely intends to help Ukrainian citizens.
  • Language Competence: For each language skill, candidates must prove that they are proficient in English or French and have at least a Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) score of 4.
  • Manitoba Connections: To improve the profile of an applicant it is possible to use Manitoba ties such as close family members, former work or school affiliations, or known community connections.
  • Expression of Interest (EOI) Points: The MPNP uses an Expression of Interest system whereby points are accumulated by candidates based on factors like work experience, education, and language proficiency. A minimum score of 60 points is required upon declaration.
  • Language Test: For verification purposes, applicants have to submit their valid results from a recognized language test center.

Manitoba’s Welcoming Approach


The Manitoba PNP created one of the most important immigration pathways that exist today known as MPNP. Unlike federal schemes, this program allows the province to select people with relevant skills who can help expand its workforce and communities.

In its recent draw, Manitoba has now invited a total of 451 Ukrainians in 2024 for permanent residency applications. By simplifying the process for Ukrainians, Manitoba serves as a last resort for those fleeing from war zones and gives them new hope in their new home.
