Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream

The Skilled Worker in Manitoba (SWM) stream recommends candidates who have a strong connection with the province through ongoing employment and enough skills in official languages, as well as the necessary skills, education, training, work, and experience to quickly and sustainably contribute to the Manitoba economy and the community as a whole.

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.
