Business Research Supports

The Immigration Programs Branch can assist you with your business research and start-up efforts through weekly information seminars, individual meetings and through referral to external business support agencies based on your specific objectives.

All applicants approved through the MPNP – Business Investor Stream are required to report to the Immigration Programs Branch as soon as they arrive in Manitoba with a temporary work permit.
