Are you eligibile to apply to immigrate to Manitoba
Answer a few questions using the interactive Come to Manitoba, Canada Tool to determine which path to permanent residence in our province is better suited to your situation, and to ensure you have the documents required to support your application to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).
The key to qualifying for the MPNP is your Connection to Manitoba
There are two paths for skilled workers, based on your connection to the Manitoba community and labour market. (Alternatively, entrepreneurs and investors may be eligible gain the requisite Connection to Manitoba through our Business path.)
- Currently working in Manitoba: Applications are accepted from temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who have been working full-time for at least six months and whose employer has offered a full-time, long-term job.
- Skilled workers overseas: Applications are accepted from skilled workers who score sufficient points for employability and adaptability based on five factors – age, English proficiency, work experience, education and Connection to Manitoba.
The Come to Manitoba, Canada Tool is for self-assessment only. The Province of Manitoba has the sole authority to nominate individuals for permanent resident status based on the MPNP’s assessment of your potential for successful economic establishment as an independent skilled worker with the genuine intention and ability to settle in Manitoba with permanent residency.
Who is inadmissible?
The MPNP accepts applications from skilled workers in any occupation where you demonstrate employability in Manitoba.
- Caregivers, students, visitors and family sponsorships are the responsibility of Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
- Applications from investors and entrepreneurs are expedited through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program for Business.
Refugees (current or refused claimants) living in Canada are not eligible for the MPNP. Such people may apply from outside of Canada if you have proof of legal status in the country in which you are now living.
