Manitoba immigration programs
Manitoba has a lot of immigration programs to help international talent settle in the province. The provincial government has the MPNP to select applicants. The Canadian provinces cannot give out the permanent residency status, but they can provide the nomination. The applicants who wish to be considered for the provincial nomination should have an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. This way, the applicant can get an LAA through Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams. The point score is calculated out of 1000, and the applicants are assessed as per human capital factors (Age, language, education, work experience, etc.) and connections to the province.
The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba streams help the applicant meet its labor market needs. The applicants can demonstrate connections to Manitoba by close family ties, previous experience in the province, or invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. At the time application is submitted, the candidate need not be present in the province.
In the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category, the applicants should have a full-time job offer from a provincial employer. The International graduates are eligible to receive the LAA under the International Education Stream if they have in-demand skills.
