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

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

The Manitoba PNP consists of three main immigration streams:

  • Manitoba Invitation
  • Manitoba Connection; and
  • Business Investor.

MPNP officials use the Manitoba Invitation stream to invite eligible individuals to apply for permanent residency. Provincial officials make regular trips abroad to search for prospective immigrants under this stream.

This stream facilitates immigration for individuals who have a connection to Manitoba. This connection may be related to work or education experience in Manitoba, or a family member or close friend residing in the province.

This stream is for individuals interested in living and investing in Manitoba. The program operates on an ‘Expression of Interest’ system, whereby prospective applicants submit their intention to apply to the program, and the most qualified applicants are invited to apply for immigration.
