In order to apply to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, prospective applicants must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) and receive a Letter of Advice to Apply. An EOI is an indication that you would like to be considered for provincial nomination.FREE ASSESSMENT
If you are eligible under one of Manitoba’s application streams, you will need to complete a series of questions. Your profile will then be placed into the EOI pool with other eligible candidates. You will be given a score based on the answers you provided, and ranked against the other candidates in the pool. If you are among the highest ranking candidates, you may be invited to submit an application to the MPNP.
Points are based on individual Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) band scores for Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. Points are awarded based on official test results provided. Those candidates who do not submit valid results of an approved language test do not receive points in this category. Your language test results must have been issued no more than two years prior to the date of submission to be considered valid.
