Next month, we are making improvements to streamline the MPNP for Skilled Workers, making it simpler and easier to understand for the many thousands who want to join our communities as permanent residents.
These program design improvements will create two easy avenues for immigration:
- Skilled workers currently employed in Manitoba as temporary foreign workers or international student graduates will continue to be eligible for the program with a job offer after six months of local employment.
- Skilled workers overseas will be awarded points for language, work history, education and adaptability. A connection to Manitoba either through previous work experience, family or friends will remain a key factor under the program.
The design improvements will come into effect April 1, 2013.
