Provinces in Canada do not have the authority to grant permanent residency, although they can assist an application by giving provincial nominations. The above-mentioned pathways are managed by Manitoba as part of their Provincial Nominee Program. To be considered for a nomination from Manitoba, you must first submit an Expression of Interest to the MPNP. This qualifies you for a LAA through the Manitoba Skilled Workers and Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas programmes.
Manitoba then assigns a score out of 1,000 to candidates based on various factors such as age, education, work experience and previous connection to the province. The Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories are intended to help Manitoba identify applicants who fit the province's labour market requirements.
Candidates from outside of Manitoba must demonstrate ties to the province, such as close family ties, prior experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba's Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. To be eligible, you do not need to live in Manitoba at the time of your application.
You must have a full-time employment offer from a provincial company to be eligible for an invitation under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category. If you can demonstrate that you have in-demand abilities or are an international graduate who completed their studies in Manitoba, you may be eligible for an invitation under the International Education Stream.
