Settlement Plan replaces MAS

The MPNP has replaced the previous mail form Manitoba Affidavit of Support (MAS) with the Settlement Plan, which has been used with online applications since July 2011.

This new, two-part form helps potential immigrants to start planning on how they will settle and find employment before they arrive in Manitoba. It is also a simpler way for applicants to demonstrate they have the support of family or friends in Manitoba.

Applications using the old MAS form will continue to be accepted until October 1, 2012.
