What is the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program


Canada PNP program was specifically designed for skilled workers who not just wanted to immigrate to Canada but also wanted to settle in a Canadian Province as a Canada PR with the requirement that they had the education, skills, and experience for the designated occupation that will contribute to the economy of that particular province or territory.

In 1998, Manitoba became the first province to adopt the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). It is crucial for the province to market itself to talented immigrants as a desirable place to live.
