Frequently asked questions about the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). 

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is a program that allows Manitoba to nominate potential immigrants according to the needs of the province.

The MPNP consists of three main immigration streams:

  • Skilled Worker Immigration Stream,
  • Business Investor Immigration Stream, and
  • Morden Community Driven Immigration Initiative.

This stream is for foreign skilled workers looking to settle and work in the province of Manitoba. The Skilled Worker Immigration Stream functions on an Expression of Interest (EOI) system and is divided into two categories:

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program for Business (MPNP-B) is for individuals interested in living and investing in Manitoba. The program operates on an Expression of Interest (EOI) system, whereby prospective applicants submit their intention to apply to the program, and the most qualified applicants are invited to apply for immigration.

The Morden Community Driven Immigration Initiative is an effort to bring immigrants in specific targeted occupations to the rural town of Morden, Manitoba, situated 112 km southwest of Winnipeg with a population of around 9,000. The targeted occupations include:

  • Cabinetmakers;
  • Manufacturing (specifically at entry level);
  • Factory sewing machine operators, and
  • Heavy vehicle mechanics.

Successful candidates and their dependent family members will become permanent residents of Canada.

As part of any PNP application, applicants are required to submit a Settlement Plan indicating why they wish to live in the province and how they intend to settle. Applicants are also required to sign an ‘intention to reside’ document with their application. That being said, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms ensures that all Canadian citizens and permanent residents are allowed to work and reside in any location across Canada. Once an individual obtains Canadian permanent residence, he or she has the right to work and reside in any Canadian province or territory.
