Manitoba Announces New Immigration Pathways for International Students
The province has introduced two new pathways for international students under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), Education and Training Minister Kelvin Goertzen announced today.
“By providing students a fast track to nomination for permanent residency, we hope to attract and retain more talented innovators and entrepreneurs from all over the world,” said Goertzen. “International students bring new ideas, global connections and an entrepreneurial spirit to our province, and when they create opportunities for themselves, Manitoba becomes more competitive and innovative.”
Celebrating 20 years of welcoming newcomers and growing through immigration
We’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), Canada’s First Provincial Nominee Program. In response to stakeholder requests, we have created a fact sheet highlighting what we have accomplished together over the last two decades.
If you are holding an event celebrating immigration in your community, please let us know.
Ensure Immigration Representatives are in Good Standing
The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act requires that all immigration representatives that provide Canadian immigration services for a fee must be registered and in good standing with the appropriate regulatory body.
You do not need an immigration representative to apply to the MPNP. If you choose to use an immigration representative, you are responsible for ensuring that your representative is authorized.
