About the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
Manitoba had the first PNP program in all of Canada, starting in 1998. Since then, more than 38,000 nominees have arrived from the Philippines, more than 21,000 from India, more than 10,000 from China and hundreds of other newcomers from various countries.
Candidates must first submit an EOI with the government of Manitoba to be considered. The system is very similar to the federal Express Entry system. Candidates submitted are in the applicant pool for 12 months and are ranked based on selection factors determined by MPNP. Candidates with close family connections, job offers, high language proficiency and/or experience in Manitoba will rank higher.
The EOI application is free to complete. If you receive an LAA, you will need to submit a non-refundable $500 fee to complete the processing of your application.
