Latest MPNP Draw: Workforce Invited in Three Streams:

International Education Stream

International graduates from specific Manitoba post-secondary institutions have a quicker route to nomination thanks to the International Education Stream (IES).

There are three routes to take:

  • International Student Entrepreneur Pilot (ISEP)
  • Graduate Internship Pathway
  • Career Employment Pathway.

This stream does not accept international graduates from other Canadian provinces, although the pathway for skilled workers in Manitoba may allow them.

Skilled Worker in Manitoba

The Skilled Worker in Manitoba (SWM) pathway has been designed for candidates with a strong connection to Manitoba through ongoing employment and sufficient knowledge of its official languages. They should also possess the necessary skills, education, training, work experience, and work history to make an immediate and sustainable contribution to the Manitoba economy and community.

Skilled Worker Overseas

The Skilled Worker Overseas (SWO) pathway is a part of the Skilled Worker Program and  recommends candidates who can prove they have a solid link to Manitoba by family or friend support, prior education or employment in the province, an invitation to apply received directly from the MPNP as part of a Strategic Recruitment Initiative, or any combination of these factors.
