Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
Most rivers and water in Manitoba eventually flow north, not south or east as is commonly assumed, and empty into Hudson Bay. The Hudson’s Bay Archives is located within Winnipeg, Manitoba, and preserves the rich history of the fur trading era that occurred along the major water routes of the Rupert’s Land area. Its gateway to Western Canada.
With an economy based largely on natural resources and agriculture, it is a major driver of Canada’s wealth. Manitoba’s population of approximately 1.5 million is located largely in and around the capital city of Winnipeg. Manitobans benefit from tight-knit communities, a stable labour market, and sweeping natural wilderness.
The MPNP is Manitoba’s Provincial Nominee Program. Through this program, prospective immigrants with skills and experience targeted by the province may receive a Manitoba Provincial Nomination Certificate, which speeds up the overall immigration process.
There are three streams through which the province and potential candidates may immigrate to Manitoba, both through Express Entry and outside Express Entry:
- Skilled Worker Immigration Stream – including those in Manitoba and Overseas
- Business Investor Immigration Stream
- Morden Community Driven Immigration Initiative – through the MPNP
