, the skilled worker overseas category under MPNP is designed by keeping in mind the needs of local Manitoba’s employers. The program selects applicants who have the skills and experience to fulfil labour shortages in the province, and nominate them to apply for a Canada permanent residency status.
The skilled worker overseas category also gives preferences to applicants who demonstrate any connection to Manitoba. This could be in the form of family members, education or work experience in Manitoba, or an ITA through the MPNP’s Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
