Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)

Introduction to Manitoba PNP

Manitoba, located between the provinces of Saskatchewan and Ontario, initiated the first Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in 1998. The program was established to address the demand for skilled immigrants and fill job gaps within the province. The success of the Manitoba PNP paved the way for several other provinces in Canada to adopt the PNP model.

Manitoba PNP Overview

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) has significantly contributed to the province’s economic growth. From initially attracting 418 immigrants in its first year, the program now welcomes over 4,000 immigrants annually on average. The uniqueness of MPNP lies in its allowance for immigration based on close family or friend connections. A remarkable 90% of provincial nominees find employment within the first year, with a retention rate of 90%.

MPNP offers both base and enhanced immigration streams for candidates to choose from. The enhanced stream aligns with the Express Entry system, which manages applications for permanent residency. Candidates are assigned point scores based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), and the highest-scoring individuals receive invitations to apply for permanent residence. On the other hand, base streams are not linked with Express Entry and require candidates with provincial nominations to apply directly to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
