The process

The process of obtaining Canadian permanent residence through the Human Capital Pathway involves the following steps:

  • Assess your eligibility according to the information on this page above.
  • If you are eligible, you may create a profile in Manitoba's Expression of Interest (EOI) system for skilled workers.
    • At this stage, you become a candidate.
  • Candidates are assigned a score out of 1,000 based on a range of credentials under Manitoba's unique ranking system for skilled workers.
  • Periodically, Manitoba immigration authorities invite the highest-ranked candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.
    • This is known as a draw.
  • Invited persons may apply for a 'base' provincial nomination under the MPNP.
    • Base nominations are not aligned with the federal Express Entry system. Applications are processed outside Express Entry.
  • Successful applicants may then apply to the federal government for permanent resident status.
