The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Programs

Manitoba manages their provincial immigration streams through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Programs. The province has four streams under MPNP umbrella. The MPNP streams are designed to attract recent graduates, skilled workers, business people and their families, to settle and economically establish in Manitoba as permanent residents.

Skilled Workers Stream


The skilled workers stream is designed to meet the needs of Manitoba employers. This stream selects internationally trained and experienced workers who have the skills needed to fill the local labour market, and nominate them to receive Canadian permanent resident visas to settle and work in Manitoba.

There are two pathways in the skilled workers stream:

Skilled Workers in Manitoba: The Skilled Workers in Manitoba pathway nominates applicants who have a strong connection to the province through ongoing employment and sufficient skills, education and training, work experience and official language proficiency to make an immediate and ongoing contribution to the Manitoba economy and our community at large.

Skilled Workers Overseas: The Skilled Workers Overseas pathway nominates applicants who demonstrate an established connection to Manitoba through: the support of family members or friends; through previous education or work experience in the province; or through an Invitation to Apply received directly from the MPNP as part of a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.

International Education Stream


The International Education Stream is designed for Manitoba graduates, providing international students graduating in Manitoba and meeting the needs of industry faster pathways to the nomination.

There are three pathways in the international education stream: 


Career EmploymentThe Career Employment Pathway provides faster nomination pathways for post-secondary students who graduate and find long-term employment in Manitoba in an in-demand occupation consistent with their training. If you meet these conditions, you will be eligible to apply to the MPNP immediately after graduating and obtaining the job offer.

Pathway Graduate InternshipThe Graduate Internship Pathway provides faster nomination pathways for international student master and doctoral graduates through internships contributing to industry innovation in Manitoba. Graduates who complete an Accelerate or Elevate internship with Mitacs in Manitoba can apply to the MPNP immediately after graduation, whether or not they have a job offer.


Pathway International Student Entrepreneur PilotThe International Student Entrepreneur Pilot will provide up to 20 (per calendar year) international students who have graduated in Manitoba the opportunity to pursue entrepreneurship rather than employment. Once the applicant meets the conditions of their Business Performance Agreement, they are nominated for permanent residence.


Graduates of other provinces are not eligible for the international education stream.

Business Investor Stream


The Business Investor Stream (BIS) allows Manitoba to recruit and nominate qualified business investors and entrepreneurs from around the world who have the intent and ability to start or purchase businesses in Manitoba.

There are two pathways in the Business Investor Stream:

The Entrepreneur Pathway for applicants seeking to open a business in Manitoba
The Farm Investor Pathway for those intending to establish and operate a farm operation in rural Manitoba.

The goal of this stream is to ensure the employment of Manitoba residence and stimulate the economy.
