As part of the Manitoba government's response to the situation in Ukraine and in line with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada's special immigration measures for those affected, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program will conduct regular EOI draws for individuals who meet all MPNP eligibility criteria and are affected by ongoing events in Ukraine.
The MPNP is currently only accepting Expression of Interest profiles using NOC 2021 (5 digits). Profiles can be submitted at any time.
The MPNP will conduct an Expression of Interest draw for profiles using NOC 2021 on November 17, 2022. To be considered in any draw occurring on November 17, 2022, you must have submitted an Expression of Interest profile by November 16, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. CST.
The MPNP will continue to accept new Expression of Interest profiles after November 16, 2022 and conduct regular draws based on the MPNP's need for applications to meet program objectives.
The MPNP plans to conduct an Expression of Interest draw for Skilled Worker Overseas candidates before December 31, 2022. This draw will consider all Expression of Interest profiles with a connection to Manitoba through a Manitoba Supporter or previous Manitoba experience. For more information, please see the Skilled Worker Overseas eligibility criteria here.
Please note that if your MPNP application was submitted before November 16, 2022, the MPNP nomination and subsequent permanent residence application will be assessed using NOC 2016. Your application and nomination cannot be switched to NOC 2021.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, along with the Economic Development Council for Manitoba Bilingual Municipalities (CDEM), Economic Development Winnipeg (EDW), Acceuil Francophone and the Manitoba Francophone Immigration Network (RIF-MB), will be participating in the upcoming Government of Canada's Destination Canada Mobility Forum, a recruitment fair for bilingual skilled workers in Paris, France and Rabat, Morocco from November 18 to 24, 2023, and in the virtual version from December 4 to 6.
Every year, the Canadian government organizes this event to connect Canadian employers in predominantly anglophone provinces with skilled bilingual candidates from a variety of industries.
