Labour Market in Manitoba & How to Immigrate
Manitoba is one of the western provinces of Canada that is booming with new economic activities. The demography of the province is ageing and the workforce is now more dependent on foreign skilled immigration due to a lack of native talents.
Manitoba is expected to see a rising demand for Civil Engineers (NOC 2131) in the coming years. The province is equally open for other skilled occupations and entry of foreign immigrants with families.
Although Canadian provinces do not have the authority to issue permanent residency status, they help immigration aspirants by issuing provincial nominations.
Interested applicants are required to register their Expression of Interest (EOI) with the province. Further, the registered profile is evaluated and ranked out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, as well as their connections to the province.
This will potentially qualify them for receiving LAAs through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
In order to be considered under the Skilled Workers Overseas stream, candidates must demonstrate their connections to Manitoba such as close family ties, previous experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. A full-time job offer from any employer situated in the province is mandatory.
International students who graduated from any institute in Manitoba can apply for provincial nomination under MPNP’s International Education Stream.
Express Entry is a direct entry program to obtain permanent residence without the need for provincial nominations. However, having a successful provincial nomination will guarantee an invitation to apply for Canada PR by virtue of 600 additional CRS points.
