If you are interested in migrating to Canada through the Manitoba PNP, then you must start it by submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the province in the express entry system.

Streams such as, the Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba are designed to address the labor shortage and economic needs of the province.
For candidates applying under the skilled workers overseas category, showcasing connection in Manitoba is mandatory. Connection can be established through a close family member, friends, education, previous work experience in Manitoba, etc. You need not to be living in Manitoba while applying under this category.
For the skilled workers in Manitoba stream, you must have a valid job offer from an employer who is based in Manitoba.
For applicants applying under the International education stream, having a degree or a post-graduate degree from an educational institution in Manitoba is a must.
