About MPNP Programs

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) seeks recent graduates, skilled workers, businesspeople and their families with the intention and ability to successfully settle and economically establish in Manitoba as Canadian permanent residents.

Anyone interested in applying to the MPNP must first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). An Expression of Interest is not an application but an online profile. Your profile will be entered into a pool of all eligible candidates and be valid for one year. You will receive EOI Ranking Points based on the answers you provide. The MPNP issues LAA to the highest-scoring candidates in the pool to submit a full application to the MPNP on a regular basis. You must receive a LAA in order to be able to submit an application for PR nomination under the MPNP.

  • Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) issuance
    • see each MPNP stream for the criteria for LAA issuance
  • MPNP application submission
    • see each MPNP stream for the procedure for applying to MPNP after receiving an LAA

All candidates must answer all EOI questions accurately and completely. If your situation changes, you must update your profile. If you provide false or misleading information in your EOI, it may be considered misrepresentation and you may be subject to a ban which would prevent you from submitting another EOI for two years.

BIS allows Manitoba to recruit and nominate qualified business investors and entrepreneurs from around the world who have the intent and ability to start or purchase businesses in Manitoba. Applicants will no longer be required to submit a deposit of $100,000 to the Manitoba government.
