Immigration programs of Manitoba
Manitoba has many immigration programs which are dedicated to attracting international skilled people to get settled in the province. Immigration is managed by the provincial government manages through the MPNP, which provides support to the federal government in the immigration applications. The provinces of Canada are not able enough to provide permanent residency status, despite they are able to help an application by issuing them provincial nominations.
If a candidate wants to get benefited from Manitoba’s nomination, then they will need to register their Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the MPNP. This will help to put you in a position to get LAA by the Skilled Workers and Skilled Workers Overseas streams in Manitoba.
Manitoba ranks the candidates for the factors like human capital and their networks in the province out of 1,000 points. The Manitoba streams that are Skilled Workers and Skilled Worker Overseas Category are designed to identify candidates who meet the needs of the province’s labor market.
The overseas candidates are needed to demonstrate their connections with the province by families, past experience, or maybe an invitation by one of the Strategic Recruitment Initiatives of Manitoba. At the time of the application to get eligible enough, there is no need for the candidate to live in Manitoba. In order to get an invitation under the category of Skilled Worker, the candidate will need a full-time job offer from the local employer of Manitoba.
International graduates of Manitoba with complete education under the international Education stream might receive an LAA only if the candidate proves to the province that they have in-demand skills:
There are three pathways for the International Education Stream:
- Graduate Internship Pathway
- Career Employment Pathway, and
- International Student Entrepreneur Pilot.
