Family friendly Manitoba
For skilled workers and families who want to move to Manitoba as Canadian permanent residents, the MPNP (Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program) offers a clearer, easier process of application and assessment.
All applicants, except those currently working in Manitoba with valid work permits, are assessed according to a new points system.
The effect of this program reconfiguration is: no change for temporary foreign workers or international student graduates; only overseas applicants are subject to the new points system.
Program redesign awards points to applicants based on factors including:
- Employability: Job experience qualifying you to work and build a career in the Manitoba labour market
- Education: Academic and/or vocational and professional training to meet current and evolving labour market demand
- Language proficiency: Documented job-ready English language ability (Tests required by all applicants except those currently working in Manitoba in NOC 0, A or B.)
- Connection to Manitoba: Ties to the Manitoba community through family or friends, or past education or employment experience, or an invitation to apply from the MPNP.
To see if you have the qualifications and Connection to Manitoba that will put you and your family on the path to success, use the interactive Come to Manitoba, Canada Tool.
- Adaptability: The genuine intention and ability, demonstrated with a Settlement Plan and developed through MPNP pre-arrival supports, to economically establish in the Province of Manitoba.
