Temporary Public Policy for Manitoba’s Post-Graduation Work Permit Holders

On May 8, 2024, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada announced a temporary public policy to help address Manitoba’s labour market needs and enable post-graduate work permit holders to maintain ongoing employment in the province.

This temporary public policy allows post-graduate work permit holders employed in Manitoba with work permits expiring in 2024, who are eligible to apply to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) and who have submitted a valid MPNP Expression of Interest (EOI) profile prior to May 10, 2024, to be eligible to apply for a province-specific open work permit that will be valid for up to two years. 

Additional details regarding this temporary public policy and associated processes will be available soon on this page.
