I operate a farm where the farm technologies, production practices, amount of investment, climate and / or government requirements are considerably different than Manitoba, but I am a hard worker, produce similar crops such as wheat and cattle, and I adapt easily to new business situations. Do I have a reasonable chance of being approved under the FSRI?

Manitoba will only nominate suitable farm business applicants whose practical farming skills, technical knowledge and experience in technological based farming practices are immediately transferable to rural Manitoba, and that a long term contribution to the Manitoba economy can be achieved through their nomination. The MPNP-B recognizes that the FSRI Program will not be a suitable program for all potential farm business applicants. Applicants who do not meet the eligibility criteria of the FSRI are encouraged to review the MPNP-B Business Program, the MPNP Skilled Worker Program, or immigration programs offered by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada with Manitoba as their destination.
