Nomination and Withdrawal of Nomination

If the MPNP approves your application, you will receive a nomination certificate, meaning that you are now a provincial nominee.

The nomination certificate is an official government document. Make copies for your personal records and for you to submit the certificate as a required document in your permanent residence (PR) application to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Nomination certificates are valid for six months. It is expected that you apply for PR during this period. If you do not apply for PR before your certificate expires, you will need to ask the MPNP to issue you a new certificate with an extended deadline by emailing

The MPNP has the right to withdraw your nomination at any time prior to IRCC granting you permanent residence if the MPNP is not satisfied that you continue to meet the original requirements under which you were nominated. Reasons for which the MPNP may withdraw a nomination include, but are not limited to:

  • The MPNP is advised that information provided in your visa application is false or has been misrepresented.
  • You are deemed to not intend to live, work, and/or start a business in Manitoba.
