Manitoba Provincial Immigration

Manitoba aims to meet specific requirements of the employers through the Skilled Worker Manitoba (SWM) stream selecting foreign workers with the skills for permanent residence. The stream has two pathways:

  • Manitoba Work Experience – The pathway helps candidates working in Manitoba under Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP). International graduates from other provinces may also apply for MPNP through this pathway. 
  • Skilled Worker Overseas – International workers with a skilled-work experience through direct pathways of the Express Entry provincial nominee program. Candidates with skills and work experience for in-demand occupations can benefit from the Skilled Worker Overseas stream.  
  • Employer Direct Recruitment – Overseas workers with a valid job offer from a Manitoba employer can benefit from the Employer Direct Recruitment pathway. 

Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program facilitates international graduates from colleges and universities in Manitoba to get a nomination for permanent residence without having to demonstrate Manitoba work experience for a minimum of six months. The International Education Stream provides Career Development, Graduate internships, and Student Entrepreneur pathways.

International candidates with active Express Entry profiles, strong Manitoba connections, skills, training, and work experience in Manitoba’s in-demand occupations can explore the Express Entry pathway.
