Manitoba Skilled Worker Immigration Stream

The Manitoba Skilled Worker immigration stream is designed for the international skilled workers who are currently employed in Manitoba and have a full-time employment offer from a registered employer in Manitoba. It starts by means of an ‘Expression of Interest’ where candidates answer the questions asked online and get a score as per their answers to the questions.

To apply under this program, candidates should check all the boxes on the MPNP skilled worker checklist mentioned below for Canada immigration. It is strongly advised that all candidates must have necessary guidance from the best immigration expert to get all done smoothly and conveniently. Many times, eligible candidates don’t get their application accepted due to their not completing and presenting the application systematically and influentially.

This category accepts an application from qualified temporary foreign workers and international students (Graduates) currently working in Manitoba with a permanent job offer from a registered employer in the state of Manitoba. Unlike others, this category doesn’t require the skilled workers in Manitoba to go through the point-based assessment to prove their eligibility. The candidate must only meet the minimum requirements to be listed in the EOI pool where they will straight away be ranked according to some number of factors.
