Province Announces $3 Million in New Funding to Strengthen Newcomer Support Services
The Manitoba government is reinvesting up to $3.1 million in revenue generated by Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program into services that support newcomers to Manitoba, Education and Training Minister Kelvin Goertzen announced today.
“Our strategic investments will improve the settlement, language, employment and community supports newcomers that need as soon as they arrive in Manitoba to put them on a path to success,” said Goertzen. “Our province continues to grow largely because of immigration, and we’ve seen the many ways newcomers benefit our culture, communities and economy.”

MPNP Renewal – Business Research Supports
Please note that our immigration website is being regularly updated to reflect ongoing changes associated with the renewal of the MPNP. For all current business nominees, as well as current and potential applicants, please visit the Business Research Supports page for information on our weekly business information seminars and related business start-up supports.
For current MPNP business nominees please note that all of the responsibilities previously associated with the Business Settlement Office of Entrepreneurship Manitoba have been transferred to the Immigration Programs Branch of the Immigration and Economic Opportunities Division of Manitoba Education and Training. MPNP business nominees are encouraged to contact MPNP-BusinessStream@gov.mb.ca concerning any questions or updates they may have with respect to their Deposit Agreements.
Ensure Immigration Representatives are in Good Standing
The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act requires that all immigration representatives that provide Canadian immigration services for a fee must be registered and in good standing with the appropriate regulatory body.
You do not need an immigration representative to apply to the MPNP. If you choose to use an immigration representative, you are responsible for ensuring that your representative is authorized.
