Manitoba PNP Program

Immigrate through Manitoba through Manitoba PNP

Canada immigration through Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (Manitoba PNP) enables individuals with the skills and experience required by the province to receive a Manitoba Provincial Nomination Certificate that expedites Canadian immigration and the Canadian Permanent Residency process.

Located between the provinces of Ontario and Saskatchewan, the province of Manitoba is in many ways the gateway to western Canada. The Government of Manitoba unveiled restructured Manitoba PNP on November 15, 2017. Some changes were implemented then and other changes came into effect in 2019.

Manitoba PNP enables Provincial and Territorial governments in Canada to attract immigrants to their region.
