How to apply for MPNP Programs

You may pre-qualify for a Canada immigration program.

Under their Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), Canada’s provincial and territorial governments are able to nominate individuals to reside in the province/territory as permanent residents in order to meet their economic needs. 

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, which 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. Manitoba ranks candidates out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors, as well as their connections to the province. The MPNP issues LAA to the highest-scoring candidates in the pool to submit a full application for nomination.

You must receive a LAA in order to be able to submit an application for PR nomination under the MPNP.

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. You may be subject to a ban which would prevent you from submitting another EOI for two years. Create an EOI.

MPNP and the Federal Express Entry immigration system

Canadian provinces do not have the ability to give out permanent residency status. However, they can nominate your for PR if you have a profile in the federal Express Entry immigration system.

Express Entry is the application system that Canada uses to manage skilled worker applications. It is also the most popular way to immigrate to Canada. You can receive a permanent residence invitation by applying through Express Entry directly and skipping the PNP process. However, having a provincial nomination effectively guarantees that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will invite you to apply for Canadian permanent residence in any of its Express Entry draws.

A total of 1,200 points is available under Express Entry. You immediately get 600 points if you are nominated by a province. See Provincial Immigrant Nomination Programs (PNPs).

How does PNP nomination help your Canada immigration application?

The 600 CRS points from a PNP nomination virtually guarantee that you will receive an ITA in an Express Entry draw.

For example, Johanna has a bachelor’s degree. She’s been working in food sciences for five years. Johanna has never worked or studied in Canada. She has an advanced English language proficiency.

Johanna entered the Express Entry pool with a CRS score of 370. However, she recently obtained a provincial nomination through MPNP. As a result IRCC awards her additional 600 points.

Consequently, Johanna’s total CRS score jumps to 970 points! This is well above the minimum CRS score required for Johanna to get an ITA in any draw.

IRCC will issue qualified PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool an invitation to apply for permanent residence. After IRCC approves your application you complete the landing process, and officially become a Canadian permanent resident.
