The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is a provincial immigration program made possible through the Canada-Manitoba Immigration Agreement.
The MPNP allows the Government of Manitoba to recruit and nominate immigrants who are best suited to contribute to Manitoba’s economy.
Applicants nominated by Manitoba should receive favourable and prompt consideration from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) as long as they comply with CIC’s statutory requirements, submit bona fide documents, and have a genuine intention to reside in Manitoba.
There are two immigration streams under the MPNP.
One is for skilled workers and the other is for business investors.
The MPNP-B will only nominate individuals who intend to reside in Manitoba with their dependent family members, make an investment into a new or existing business and assume an active managerial role in that business. Individuals who do not meet all program requirements are encouraged to explore other provincial and federal immigration programs.
MPNP-B officers assess applications based on eligibility requirements and selection factors. Applicants must meet the eligibility requirements. However, applicants should also be aware that meeting the minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee nomination.
Priority is given to the applicants who have the greatest potential to become economically established in Manitoba.
