How do I qualify for the skilled worker in Manitoba Stream?
The Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream (SWM) is based on the specific needs of Manitoba employers. SWM selects foreign-educated workers with the required skills and nominates them for permanent residency in Canada. The stream prioritizes candidates with strong ties to Manitoba, with two pathways to immigrate to Manitoba.
a) Work Experience Path in Manitoba
For applicants currently working in Manitoba on a temporary work permit, under the Temporary Alien Worker Program, or as an international graduate of any province. Candidates do not have to work in in-demand professions.
b) Employer direct hire path
For international applicants with job listings from accredited employers in Manitoba.
How do I qualify for the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream?
The Skilled Worker Overseas Stream (SWO) includes both a dedicated Canada Express Entry Pathway and a direct provincial path.
It is aimed at international skilled workers with skills and training in Manitoba’s in-demand occupations. Preference is given to applicants and spouses with close family ties as well as language skills, education and experience in order to find a job quickly.
a) Manitoba Express Entry Pathway
For international candidates admitted under another MPNP stream who also meet the Express Entry criteria and have an active Express Entry profile. Candidates need skills, education and experience in one of Manitoba’s in-demand careers, as well as a strong family connection to the province.
b) human capital path
For international professionals with the skills, education and experience in one of Manitoba’s in-demand occupations. Candidates must demonstrate the potential to find employment soon after arriving in Manitoba.
What are the requirements for the International Education Stream?
The International Education Stream (IES) is for international graduates from colleges and universities in Manitoba. Under IES, candidates are no longer required to work in their field for six months before applying for an MPNP nomination. It has three ways:
1) Career entry path
Admission requirements include:
Completion of a one-year or longer course at an appropriate post-secondary institution in Manitoba within three years of application submission. Have a full-time job offer in a Manitoba in-demand occupation related to the Manitoba degree completed
2) Internship path for college graduates
Masters and PhD students who have completed a Mitacs Accelerate or Elevate internship may also apply for nomination through internships without a job offer in the province.
3) Student Entrepreneur Path
Admission requirements include:
Completion of a two-year or longer course at an appropriate post-secondary institution in Manitoba. Six months experience operating in Manitoba Manitoba resident since graduation. No specific minimum personal net worth requirement
