Manitoba restructuring Provincial Nominee Program to provide new pathways to permanent residence for international students
The Canadian province of Manitoba is restructuring its economic immigration program, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), to provide new pathways to permanent residence for international students.
The revamped MPNP is expected to encompass four application streams: international education, skilled worker in Manitoba, skilled worker overseas and business investor.
Effective April 2018, a new international education stream will include faster nomination pathways for graduates of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programs who are completing internships that support industry innovation.
In addition, postsecondary international student graduates from Manitoba education institutions who find longer-term employment in an in-demand occupation consistent with their training will no longer have to work for six months before applying to the MPNP.
