Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) – Non Express Entry

    • What is Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) – Non-Express Stream

      The non-Express Entry process for Manitoba is part of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). This program allows the province to nominate individuals with the skills, experience, and qualifications needed in Manitoba’s labor market. Here’s an overview of the non-Express Entry process for Manitoba:

      • – Categories and Streams: The MPNP offers several categories and streams through which individuals can apply for nomination. These include the Skilled Worker Overseas stream, the Skilled Worker in Manitoba stream, the International Education stream, the Business Investor stream, and the Farm Investor stream.

      • – Eligibility Criteria: Each category and stream within the MPNP has its own specific eligibility criteria. These criteria may include factors such as education, work experience, language proficiency, and ties to Manitoba.

      • – Expression of Interest (EOI): In most cases, individuals interested in applying to the MPNP must first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the program. The EOI includes information about the applicant’s education, work experience, language proficiency, and other relevant details.

      • – Ranking and Selection: EOIs are ranked based on various factors, such as the Manitoba Expression of Interest points system, which considers factors like language proficiency, work experience, education, and adaptability. The highest-ranking candidates may be invited to apply for provincial nomination.

      • – Invitation to Apply (ITA): Qualified candidates may receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for provincial nomination from the MPNP. This invitation is based on factors such as the applicant’s score in the EOI pool and the current needs of Manitoba’s labor market.

      • – Application Submission: Once an ITA is received, applicants have a specified time frame to submit a complete application to the MPNP. If the application is approved, the applicant will receive a provincial nomination certificate from Manitoba.

      • – Federal Application: With the provincial nomination certificate, the applicant can then apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residence. The federal government will assess the application based on admissibility requirements, such as health, security, and background checks.

      • – Permanent Residence: If the federal application is approved, the applicant and their family members (if applicable) will be granted permanent residence in Canada.

      It’s important for applicants to review the specific requirements and processes for the category and stream they are interested in, as they may vary. They should also ensure they have the most up-to-date information by consulting the official website of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program.
