• PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM - INTRODUCTION

    Most provinces and territories in Canada can nominate immigrants through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). These immigrants must have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of that province or territory, and must want to live there.

    Each province and territory has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and criteria for their PNP. For example, in a program stream, provinces and territories may target students, business people, skilled workers or semi-skilled workers.

    Since January 1, 2015, many provinces and territories have launched new Express Entry streams. Check their websites to learn more about which streams they offer.


    Each province and territory’s streams, eligibility requirements and nomination guidelines for their PNP can change without notice.

    If you are nominated under a non-Express Entry stream:

    • you will have to apply through the paper-based process, and
    • if the province or territory finds you eligible and nominates you, you will send an application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).

    If you are nominated under a province or territory’s Express Entry stream, you must:

    • meet their requirements, and
    • meet the minimum criteria for Express Entry
      • this includes meeting the requirements of at least one of the immigration programs it covers.

    To apply for the PNP you must:

    • apply to a province or territory for a nomination,
    • be nominated by that province or territory, then
    • apply to CIC to become a permanent resident.

    Under a PNP Express Entry stream, you will need to complete an Express Entry profile and show that you meet the minimum criteria for Express Entry.


    The eligibility criteria for the PNP is different based on whether you apply through the paper-based (non-Express Entry streams) or Express Entry (Express Entry streams) process.

    If you are applying through the paper-based process

    • You must meet the minimum requirements of one of the province or territory’s non-Express Entry streams.
    • You must be nominated under that stream.

    If you are applying through Express Entry

    • You must meet the minimum requirements of a province or territory’s Express Entry PNP stream.
    • You must be nominated under that stream.
    • You must create an Express Entry profile and show that you meet the minimum criteria for Express Entry, including the requirements of one of the immigration programs it covers.

    Note: We are updating the Express Entry system:

    • you can now earn additional points if you studied in Canada
    • a valid job offer now only needs to be for one year, and some job offers no longer need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
    • the amount of points you get for a job offer has changed
    • if you are invited to apply, you now have 90 days instead of 60.

    To be nominated by a province or territory, you must follow the instructions on their website and contact them directly:


    How you will apply depends on which Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) stream you are applying to. You might need to apply using the paper-based process, or the online process through Express Entry.

    In both cases, you must apply in two stages:

    1. First, you must decide where you want to live in Canada and apply to that province or territory for a nomination. They will review your application based on:
      • their immigration needs,
      • if you really plan to live there, and,
      • for Express Entry only—if you meet the minimum criteria of at least one of the federal immigration programs covered by Express Entry.

      Note: If you are creating an Express Entry profile, you will be asked which provinces and territories you are interested in. They may contact you and ask you to submit a PNP application so they can nominate you. If you already have a nomination, you must show this in your profile.

      The criteria by province and territory vary and can change without notice. To be nominated, you must follow the instructions on their website and contact them directly.

    2. After a province or territory nominates you, you must apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for permanent residence. CIC will assess your application based on Canadian immigration law.
      • If your nomination is through Express Entry, you must be invited to apply by CIC before you can submit an electronic application for permanent residence.

      As part of the process, you will have to pass a medical exam and get a police check (certificate). All immigrants must have these checks, no matter where they plan to live in Canada.


    The application process is determined by the PNP stream that you are applying for. There is a paper based process and an electronic process.

    In the paper-based process:

    • You apply to the province or territory for nomination under a non-Express Entry stream
    • You need to meet the eligibility requirements of the province that nominates you
    • Once you have been nominated, you submit a paper application for permanent residence to CIC
    • Application processing times are longer than through Express Entry

    In the online Express Entry process, there are two ways to apply:

    • You contact the province or territory and apply for a nomination under an Express Entry stream
    • If the province or territory agrees to nominate you, you create an Express Entry profile (or update your profile if you already have one) and show you have been nominated

    OR

    • You create an Express Entry profile and show the provinces and territories you are interested in
    • If a province or territory sends you a “notification of interest” to your MyCIC account, you contact them directly
    • You apply to their Express Entry stream

    In both cases:

    • You must meet the eligibility requirements of the province or territory, and
    • You must submit an Express Entry profile and show that you meet the minimum criteria for Express Entry, including being eligible for one of the immigration programs it covers
    • If you are invited to apply, you submit an electronic application to CIC
    • We expect to process most Express Entry applications in 6 months or less.

    Note: We are updating the Express Entry system:

    • you can now earn additional points if you studied in Canada
    • a valid job offer now only needs to be for one year, and some job offers no longer need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
    • the amount of points you get for a job offer has changed
    • if you are invited to apply, you now have 90 days instead of 60.

  • MANITOBA PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM

    The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is responsible for the selection of economic immigrants according to criteria developed by Manitoba that are consistent with the provisions of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and the Canada-Manitoba Immigration Agreement.

    The Service Continuum begins at the point of application to the MPNP, where our online application tool guides prospective immigrants to discern whether they are qualified and guides them to submit complete applications, with supporting documentation, to hasten processing.

    The MPNP has two different selection processes, one for skilled workers and one for entrepreneurs.

    All applicants approved by the MPNP become provincial nominees. Nominees must then apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for a permanent resident visa. CIC has the final authority to issue a permanent resident visa to any applicant if they are found to be true economic immigrants who pass security and medical background checks.

    Workers selected for long-term employability

    The MPNP selects skilled workers according to their ability to economically establish, to make a long-term contribution to the Manitoba labour market and to demonstrate their bona fide intention to settle as permanent residents in our province. Skilled workers apply via two paths:

    1. Applicants Currently Working in Manitoba, and
    2. Overseas Applicants who can:
      1. demonstrate their adaptability to Manitoba through strong connections, a viable settlement plan and sufficient, independent financial resource, and
      2. be assessed sufficient points for age, education and training, work experience, and language ability.

    The MPNP submits all nominations for skilled workers and entrepreneurs directly to CIC's Centralized Intake Office (CIO) according to the limits established by the annual federal government levels plan. Because Manitoba has a limited number of Certificates of Nomination that can be issued every year, the MPNP selects the strongest eligible applications received for nomination.

    The successful provincial nominee must submit a permanent resident visa application to the CIO. Once the visa has been issued, the new Manitoban travels directly to our province to begin working or to start a business according to the terms of their nomination.

    MPNP for Skilled Workers in Manitoba


    The MPNP for Skilled Workers is locally driven and based on the needs of Manitoba employers. We select internationally trained and experienced workers who have the skills needed in the local labour market, and nominate them to receive Canadian permanent resident visas to settle and work in Manitoba.

    The key to the success of the MPNP is the consistently strong and stable economy of our province. The diversity of Manitoba’s growing industries and economic sectors keeps our unemployment rate low. Good wages, safe working conditions, generous benefits and workers’ rights are some of the highlights of working in Manitoba. Plus, with Manitoba’s low cost of living, and high standard of government services such as health care and education, the province offers an affordable, high-quality lifestyle.

    The MPNP for Skilled Workers in Manitoba nominates applicants who have a strong connection to our province through ongoing employment and sufficient skills, education and training, work experience and official language proficiency to make an immediate and ongoing contribution to the Manitoba economy and our community at large.

    Ongoing Manitoba employment is a means for skilled workers to demonstrate they have the connection to Manitoba required of all applicants to the MPNP for Skilled Workers in Manitoba.

    All applicants must submit a Settlement Plan, to explain their plan for settling in Manitoba successfully and contributing economically. Upon nomination, we provide resources to help you put your plan into action toward achieving your goals.

    The MPNP for Skilled Workers in Manitoba empowers you to take charge of your proven success finding employment in Manitoba. Our secure and easy-to-use web application, MPNP Online, guides you to enter all the information and documentation that you need to apply.

    Immigration through the MPNP for Skilled Workers in Manitoba is a three-step process:

    STEP 1

    • Submit an Expression of Interest

    STEP 2

    • The highest-scoring qualified candidates with a connection to Manitoba are invited to submit an MPNP application

    STEP 3

    • Following a thorough assessment, the MPNP nominates successful candidates to make a separate application to the Government of Canada for permanent resident visas for you and your family.

    Determine Your Eligibility – Skilled Workers in Manitoba

    Ongoing Manitoba employment is a means for skilled workers to demonstrate they have the Connection to Manitoba required of all applicants to the MPNP for Skilled Workers.

    Ongoing Manitoba employment means that a Manitoba company has offered you a long-term, full-time job after you have completed at least six months (continuous) full-time employment with that company as a temporary foreign worker or international student working graduate.

    Unlike the other connections to Manitoba in the MPNP, Skilled Workers in Manitoba are not subject to a points-based assessment.


    Your employer must be incorporated or registered by or under an act of the legislature of a province or the Parliament of Canada and operating as a business that has an established production capability, plant or place of business in Manitoba.

    Your employer must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the MPNP that they are an established business with an ability to offer you full-time and long-term employment in Manitoba.

    Any periods of self-employment, unauthorized work, or periods of employment during which you were engaged in full-time study (ex: work experience gained on a co-op permit) will not be included when calculating the period of qualifying work experience in Manitoba.

    Self-employed individuals, business owners, owner-operators and individuals providing services as independent contractors to the business supporting their application are not eligible to apply as Skilled Workers in Manitoba and any work experience in Manitoba gained in those capacities will not be considered when calculating the qualifying period of work in the province.

    Note

    Employment that is part of a work-study program is ineligible.

    Skilled workers applying on the basis of ongoing employment in Manitoba must still provide documented proof of settlement funds in their name. However, the MPNP will consider your current income, so you may not necessarily require the generally recommended C$10,000 in settlement funds.

A Manitoba Supporter must be the applicant’s close relative or friend/distant relative, and must be:

    • able to provide documents proving they reside and are established in Manitoba and have been living in the province continuously for at least one year (ex: copy of Manitoba Health Card)
    • a Canadian citizen or permanent resident (ex: copy of Permanent Resident Card)
    • able to demonstrate sufficiently close ties to the applicant and to Manitoba
    • able to demonstrate that any applications they previously supported resulted in successful, permanent economic establishment in Manitoba
    • able to support the applicant’s Settlement Plan

    For close relatives, both the applicant and the supporter must provide documents proving their familial relationship.

    Close relatives may support the application of more than one skilled worker at a time provided they satisfactorily demonstrate their ability to do so.

    For friends and distant relatives, their household must not be currently supporting the settlement of another MPNP applicant, nominee or person under another Canadian immigration program.

    Finally, your supporter cannot be and the MPNP will not accept a Settlement Plan Part 2 signed by:

    • a paid immigration representative
    • anyone who is not a demonstrated relative or friend of the applicant or the applicant’s spouse
    • a Canadian elected official or their staff

    Your Manitoba supporter is your connection to the province; to be eligible for the MPNP you must also demonstrate you can be assessed sufficient points for language, employability, education, age and adaptability according to the MPNP Self-assessment Worksheet.

    Note: Applicants with Manitoba Supporters should declare that person and their address as local contact for correspondence with the MPNP so that your supporter is authorized to discuss your application.

    Important: The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program is not a sponsorship program. Because the MPNP is a labour market-driven, economic immigration program, all applicants must be employable and adaptable skilled workers with job-ready English, sufficient settlement funds and the genuine intention and ability to economically establish in Manitoba as permanent residents.

    Familial relationships

    To be considered a close relative, a Manitoba Supporter must be related to the applicant (or the applicant’s spouse) in one of the following ways:

    • sister or brother
    • niece or nephew (ex: child of your sister or brother)
    • aunt or uncle (ex: brother or sister of your mother or father)
    • first cousin (ex: child of your aunt or uncle)
    • mother or father
    • grandmother or grandfather

    No. Children living in Manitoba cannot serve as Manitoba Supporter for their parents’ MPNP application. Instead, visit IRCC > Sponsor your parents and grandparents.

    Can Canadians or Permanent Residents support an application for their spouse?

    If you are married to a Canadian Citizen or permanent resident, you are not eligible to apply to the MPNP, but you may qualify under IRCCs Spousal Sponsorship category. Please visit IRCC > Spouse and Common Law Application.

    Important: The MPNP requires up-to-date contact information for your Manitoba supporter. Your supporter MUST inform the MPNP if they move to a new address or there are any other changes to their contact information. If the MPNP is unable to contact your supporter using the information on file, your application may be refused.


    Manitoba Experience means that in the past you lived in the province as a temporary foreign worker or as an international student.

    Manitoba Experience is your connection; to be eligible for the MPNP you must also demonstrate you can be assessed sufficient points for language, employability, education, age and adaptability according to the MPNP Self-assessment Worksheet.

    Skilled workers considering applying with connection of Manitoba Experience may refer to the points worksheet to see how many points you may be assessed for your past employment, or for your past education (dependent on your level and duration of studies).

    Past employment in Manitoba:

    • In the past, you worked full-time for a Manitoba employer at least six consecutive months.
    • Submit signed employer letter of reference on company letterhead and copy of work permit proving you worked in Manitoba.

    Past education in Manitoba:

    • As an international student you attended and completed an authorized education or training program at a public, or registered private vocational, post-secondary institution in Manitoba. (Language studies are not authorized.)
    • To prove you studied in Manitoba, you must submit your study permit(s), your academic transcripts and the certificate, diploma or degree you received for completing the program.

    The MPNP for Skilled Workers regularly issues Invitations to Apply to qualified candidates who are identified as part of one of our Strategic Recruitment initiatives in Manitoba and overseas. Issuance of an Invitation to Apply is at the sole discretion of the MPNP and applicants cannot self-select for eligibility with this connection to our province.

    Required documents

    To apply to the MPNP with the connection of Manitoba Invitation, you must upload in MPNP Online the Letter of Invitation you received directly from the MPNP after being interviewed by a program officer during a recruitment mission or exploratory visit.

    Recruitment missions

    The MPNP regularly travels overseas on recruitment missions, often in partnership with Manitoba employers. Watch this page for news of the next MPNP initiative.

    Exploratory Visits

    The MPNP accepts – only during set periods – expressions of interest to make an exploratory visit to Manitoba. Watch this page for news of future intake dates.

    Eligibility criteria to participate in visits and missions are subject to change but generally include that you:

    • are between the ages of 21 to 45
    • can satisfy the MPNP that you do not have a stronger connection to another province
    • can demonstrate the employability and adaptability required of all MPNP applicants
    • have completed at least a one-year, post-secondary education or training program for which you received a diploma, degree or certificate

    • have the genuine intention and ability to economically establish and settle in the Canadian province of Manitoba as a permanent resident demonstrated, in part, with a Settlement Plan
    • provide to the MPNP, at the time you apply to participate in the initiative, official results of an approved language test taken within the past two years showing you achieved scores equivalent to at least CLB 5 in each test category and overall.

    What is an MPNP exploratory visit?

    An exploratory visit is a pre-arranged trip that potential MPNP applicants may make to the Province of Manitoba, Canada to research communities and employment opportunities to help them make an informed decision on whether they have the intention and ability to find employment and settle with their family in Manitoba as permanent residents.

    After the MPNP interview included in a pre-approved exploratory visit, we may invite you to submit an MPNP Online application. Note that it is the Letter of Invitation, not the exploratory visit, that establishes a candidate’s requisite Manitoba connection.

    The MPNP conducts exploratory visits at our discretion as resources allow in order to provide opportunity for qualified skilled workers, otherwise ineligible for our program, to establish the Connection to Manitoba that is required of all provincial nominee program applicants.

    Exploratory visits must be approved by, then arranged through, the MPNP only by invitation following our acceptance of your request.

    Exploratory visit itinerary:

    Only to candidates whose request is accepted does the MPNP provide instructions on what to do during an exploratory visit and what documents to bring with you (ex: education certificates and employer letters of reference). Activities to undertake during an exploratory visit include: meeting with prospective employers; consulting with occupational regulatory bodies, and exploring housing, school and lifestyle opportunities in your chosen Manitoba community.

    Note: Neither an accepted request, nor an actual visit and interview, nor an Invitation to Apply to the MPNP suggest guarantee of approval of your eventual MPNP Online application, nor approval of a nominee’s subsequent, separate permanent resident visa application to the Government of Canada.

    Points Assessment

    In addition to demonstrating a strong connection to Manitoba, every candidate who wants to be considered under the Skilled Worker Overseas stream must score at least 60 points based on five factors in order to be eligible.

  • NORTHWEST TERRITORIES

    A beautiful land of opportunity, the Northwest Territories (NWT) in northern Canada is a great place to establish yourself and safely raise your family.

    There are many reasons to consider immigrating here. To begin with, there are excellent employment prospects. The Northwest Territories boasts the highest median household income in Canada, and its capital, Yellowknife, boasts the highest rate of employment in the country. The Northwest Territories welcomed 111 permanent residents to the territory in 2014. The Northwest Territories is a place where newcomers can expect to receive a friendly welcome while continuing to embrace their own traditions and practices. As a result there are many thriving cultural communities here.

    The Northwest Territories offer first-rate healthcare services, a strong education system and an abundance of recreational opportunities and events to enjoy. When you come here, services are available to help make the transition easier. Whether you need to apply for health care or open a bank account, there will be support for you.

    Our winters may be cold but the right coat and mittens will always keep you warm. You will fall in love with our warm summers and the long hours of daylight.

    There are a lot of places on the Internet to find great information about moving to the Northwest Territories. In addition to general information, links to other sources are included for each topic to help give you as much information as possible to make your decision to immigrate here. With the click of a button, it’s all within reach.

    The Northwest Territories Nominee Program is delivered in partnership between the Government of the Northwest Territories and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. The Nominee Program is designed to help employers in the Northwest Territories secure the workforce they need for their businesses. If an employer cannot find a candidate locally or nationally for a position, the next option is to find foreign nationals with the skills and experience for the job. If you are already working in the Northwest Territories, ask your employer about the Nominee Program and the different opportunities to help you become a permanent resident.

    Employers may recruit and hire eligible foreign nationals who wish to work and live in the Northwest Territories when there are no qualified Canadians or permanent residents available. There are three program streams employers may use to hire foreign nationals:

    • Critical Impact Workers
    • Skilled Workers
    • Express Entry System for Skilled Workers

  • ONTARIO NOMINEE PROGRAM

    Ontario recognizes that employers play a critical role in our economic success. For many employers, newcomers to Ontario are a valuable source of skilled labour. If you are an Ontario employer having difficulty finding the workers you need, Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program may be the program for you.


    The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is an economic immigration program designed to help Ontario meet its labour market and economic development priorities. The program allows Ontario to nominate, for permanent residence, individuals who have the skills and experience to contribute to Ontario’s economy, and assists employers in recruiting and retaining foreign workers.

    The OINP is operated by the province of Ontario in partnership with the federal government through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The OINP assesses applications and nominates candidates for permanent residence. Individuals nominated by the OINP can then apply for permanent residence through IRCC, IRCC makes the final decision on each application and issues permanent resident visas to successful applicants.


    Useful links

    This program allows employers to:

    • Apply for the approval of permanent, full-time positions to be filled by foreign nationals
    • Recruit foreign nationals to fill those positions.

    Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is designed in part to assist employers who are having difficulty recruiting qualified, skilled workers in Ontario.

    Approved employers can recruit foreign workers through the General Category and the International with a Job Offer.

    Individuals applying through the International Masters Graduates and the International PhD Graduates streams can apply directly to OINP


    Once they are recruited by an employer, individuals who meet all of the OINP requirements may be nominated by the province for permanent residence as Provincial Nominees. Individuals applying in the International Students: Masters Graduate or PhD graduates stream can apply directly to OINP.

    Nominated individuals must then apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). IRCC then performs important admissibility checks for health and security in order to grant permanent residence to applicants. Nominees can also apply to IRCC for a temporary work permit while their permanent residence application is being processed.


    Express Entry is a new application management system introduced by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to manage permanent resident applications for skilled migration to Canada. To qualify for Express Entry and be considered for nomination by Ontario, candidates must qualify for one of two federal immigration programs:

    • Federal Skilled Worker Program
    • Canadian Experience Class

    Ontario has created two new streams for skilled workers who want to live and work permanently in Ontario. The two new streams draw from the Federal Express Entry selection system.

    • Ontario Express Entry: Human Capital Priorities Stream
    • Ontario Express Entry: French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream
    • Ontario Express Entry: Skilled Trades Stream

    This enables Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) to nominate individuals that have qualified for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry pool and who have the required education, skilled work experience, language ability, and other factors to help them successfully establish and integrate into Ontario’s labour market and communities.
