Candidates who are successfully nominated through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream will be invited to submit an official application for Canadian permanent residence.
This stream uses the MPNP Ranking System to rank interested candidates against one another. Only those candidates who have the most competitive profiles will be invited to submit an official application to the program.
Throughout 2018 and 2019 the province of Manitoba is implementing extensive changes to their PNP. All details and a schedule of changes are included in the MPNP Renewal section of our website. All streams will be experiencing changes, with some streams closing and new streams opening.

Connection to Manitoba
In order to be eligible for the Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream, a candidate must already be in Manitoba working for an employer on a valid work permit. The candidate must have been working for the employer for at least the 6 months prior to application. If the candidate has recently graduated from a post-secondary program in another Canadian province and wants to apply to the MPNP for Skilled Workers they must have been working for their Manitoba employer for at least 12 months.
Please note that work experience gained while engaged in full-time study will not count towards the requirements for this stream.
Additionally, the candidate must have a job offer from their current Manitoba employer for a full-time, permanent position to continue working with them.
If a candidate’s employment offer is for a position at National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, or B, then there is no minimum language proficiency requirement.
If a candidate’s employment offer is for a position at NOC Skill Level C or D, then the candidate must have valid language test scores showing proficiency equivalent to the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 4 or higher.
Level of Education
There is no minimum education requirement for this stream. However, candidates who can demonstrate completion of post-secondary education will be able to claim points through the MPNP Ranking System. As only those candidates with the highest ranking will be invited to apply to the program, candidates with post-secondary training will have an advantage over others in the pool.
All candidates for MPNP streams must submit a settlement plan outlining their plan for integrating into life in Manitoba.
All candidates for MPNP streams should be prepared to demonstrate they meet certain provincial settlement funds requirements. Manitoba requires candidates to show they have access to a minimum of $10,000 CAD plus an additional $2,000 CAD per spouse and accompanying dependant. This is the provincial requirement; when submitting a federal immigration application these requirements may vary.
The Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream operates on an Expression of Interest (EOI) system. Candidates who meet the minimum stream requirements can register a profile using the MPNP Online portal.
Once the profile has been submitted, candidates will be assigned a score and ranked against one another using the MPNP Ranking System. The highest ranking candidates will be issued a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) during one of the MPNP Draws. After receiving an LAA, the candidate has 60 days to submit a complete application to MPNP. The application can be submitted online via the applicant’s MPNP Online account.
If the application is approved, the applicant will be issued a provincial nomination for permanent residence from Manitoba. They will be mailed a nomination package indicating how to prepare and submit a federal application for permanent residence.
Provincial nominees have six months from the date of their nomination to submit an official application for permanent residence. They must prepare a paper-based application and submit it by mail to the appropriate application centre. Paper-based PNP applications for permanent residence are generally processed within 18 months.
The following system is used to assign all MPNP candidates a score after the submission of their Expression of Interest (EOI). Those candidates with the highest scores will be invited to apply to the program in one of the MPNP Draws – Issuance of Letters of Advice to Apply (LAA).
