Manitoba introduced the Expression Of Interest system to quickly evaluate candidates for immigration based on their suitability with regards to education, skills and work experience while also meeting local economic needs.

Various provinces widely use it to nominate suitable candidates for permanent residency. Invited candidates can now get an invitation from Manitoba, which then supports their final application if they are successful.

Manitoba is one of the most popular destinations in Canada. The province regularly invites newcomers and potential immigrants with open arms to fill labour shortages, especially within industries that need skilled workers.

Manitoba’s Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) aims to fill labour shortages in the province.

The MPNP program helps all parties involved meet their goals by ensuring that people who want to establish themselves in this province have an opportunity when it’s not readily accessible elsewhere thus helping the community.

The MPNP helps people apply to immigrate by supporting their applications with the federal government. Canadian provinces don’t have any power over residency status, but they can help an application with a provincial nomination.
