Manitoba, province of Canada, one of the Prairie Provinces, lying midway between the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans. Agriculture remains an important sector of the Manitoban economy, though climate and soil types limit agricultural production. Whether you simply want to visit Manitoba to explore its rich cultural history and natural beauty, come to Manitoba to work temporarily or immigrate to the province, there are so many available options. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) looks for recent graduates, skilled workers, businesspeople and their families with the intention and ability to successfully settle in Manitoba as permanent residents.

The PNP program enables the province to select and nominate foreign workers, international students, and entrepreneurs to help meet the province/territory labor market needs, support government priorities, and help grow their economy. If you are nominated, you and your family can apply to IRCC to become a permanent resident of Canada.

The first step to apply for provincial nomination, is to apply to the PNP in the province or territory where you want to live. You must have the skills, education, and work experience necessary to settle in Canada and support yourself and your family to qualify. The province or territory will determine if you can meet their economic and labor market needs, as well as those of Canada.

Following the approval of your application by the province or territory, you must apply for permanent residence within the timeframe set forth by the province or territory. The province or territory will inform you If you must apply through the Express Entry system or the regular application process:

  • Nomination under an Express Entry PNP stream: If you are not already in the Express Entry pool, you will need to complete an Express Entry profile and be accepted into the pool.


  • Nomination under a non-Express Entry PNP stream: Permanent resident applicants who were nominated through a non-Express Entry PNP stream should use the usual application process to seek for permanent residence.

You can find out who is eligible to apply for each stream of nominee program described below by looking at the table below. Please keep in mind that there are so many other qualifying conditions to meet before you can apply for a certain stream.
