Manitoba Skilled Worker

Manitoba Skilled Worker program selects internationally trained and experienced workers who have the skills needed in the province’s local labour market, and nominate them to receive Canadian permanent resident visas to settle and work in Manitoba.

Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) is the first step to immigration to Manitoba as a Provincial Nominee. Applicants are ranked using several factors and the highest-scoring candidates will be invited to submit an application to the MPNP.
