The Skilled Workers Stream is locally driven and based on the needs of Manitoba employers. We select internationally trained and experienced workers who have the skills needed in the local labour market, and nominate them to receive Canadian permanent resident visas to settle and work in Manitoba.
The Skilled Workers in Manitoba pathway nominates applicants who have a strong connection to our province through ongoing employment and sufficient skills, education and training, work experience and official language proficiency to make an immediate and ongoing contribution to the Manitoba economy and our community at large.
Ongoing Manitoba employment is a way for skilled workers to demonstrate they have the connection to Manitoba required to be eligible to apply to the Skilled Workers in Manitoba pathway. Determine your eligibility.
The Skilled Workers in Manitoba pathway empowers you to take charge of your proven success finding employment in Manitoba. Our secure and easy-to-use web application, MPNP Online, guides you to enter all the information and documentation that you need to apply.
Apply in 3 Steps
Immigration through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba pathway is a three-step process:
- The highest-scoring qualified candidates with a connection to Manitoba are invited to submit an MPNP application
- Following a thorough assessment, the MPNP nominates successful candidates to make a separate application to the Government of Canada for permanent resident visas for you and your family.
