About the Skilled Workers Program Manitoba

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Programme for Skilled Workers is mostly a locally driven program that is managed with Manitoba employers’ requirements in mind. The workers selected by MPNP are all highly skilled, internationally trained, and experienced workers who have a specific skill set required by the local labor market. 

All of the selected applicants are then nominated for and/or invited to apply for Canadian Permanent Resident visas, which will enable them to work and settle in Manitoba, Canada.

All qualified candidates with the skills required to contribute significantly to the expanding economy are encouraged to apply to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Programme. 

The Manitoba PNP enables all nominated candidates to become Canadian citizens and to remain and work in the province of Manitoba.

Who is eligible for Manitoba’s skilled worker program?

You must provide proof of your ongoing work in Manitoba as your established link to Manitoba in order to apply for the Skilled Worker in Manitoba (SWM) program. If you have a valid work permit and have been employed full-time for at least six months (consecutively) by a Manitoba business as a temporary foreign worker or international student working graduate, you are considered to be in ongoing Manitoba employment.

You might be able to submit an application to the MPNP as a temporary foreign worker (TFW) if you are successful in getting an IRCC temporary work permit.
