Manitoba is one of the most popular destinations for Canada immigrants to settle in. Last year, the province issued nominations a total of 5,207 candidates, which is a record. Under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream of the MPNP, temporary foreign workers and international student graduates currently working in Manitoba can apply for provincial nomination. The candidates must also have a permanent, full-time job offer from a Manitoba employer.
The Skilled Workers Overseas stream allows Manitoba to nominate eligible candidates living outside Canada and having an established connection to the province, in the form of previous education or work experience or close relatives or friends living in the province. An invitation under the Strategic Recruitment Initiatives of MPNP also makes them eligible for provincial nomination.
