Enhanced MPNP Online includes Status Check

As part of the province’s commitment to continual improvement of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, we’ve added automated Status Check functionality to MPNP Online.

To find out the status of your application, simply log in to MPNP Online and click Status Check to see where your file stands in the assessment process. (Status Check messages are further explained in our FAQ.)

This change improves our quality of service and enhances the client experience by allowing applicants to check the status of submitted applications anytime, anywhere.

Through the MPNP, Manitoba selects internationally educated and experienced skilled workers and professionals who are needed by local employers, and who demonstrate a commitment to settle with their families in Manitoba communities as permanent residents.

The MPNP is open to temporary workers (TFW and International Student Graduates) who have been offered a permanent job by a Manitoba employer, as well as to qualified candidates not currently working in the province but who demonstrate a strong connection to Manitoba through past employment or education, through family and friends, or through an invitation to apply as part of MPNP promotion and recruitment activities.

Skilled immigrants selected by the MPNP are nominated to receive from the Government of Canada permanent resident status for themselves and their families, which enables nominees to settle in Manitoba, thereby addressing immediate labour market demand and contributing to the growth of our communities.

To improve processing of applications, the Province of Manitoba launched MPNP Online in June 2011, and after two years of positive feedback the MPNP eliminated paperwork entirely, giving Manitoba the country’s first online-only immigration process.
