Manitoba Skilled Worker Overseas stream
The Manitoba Skilled Worker Overseas stream allows the province to select immigration candidates from abroad and nominate them for permanent residence in Canada. The Stream has two pathways- a pathway aligned to the federal Express Entry and another one, which is a direct provincial pathway. Both the pathways target international skilled workers with skills and work experience in one of the in-demand occupations of Manitoba. In both the pathways, candidates with close family connections in Manitoba and those who have previous study or work experience in Manitoba and high language proficiency will have better preference.
Manitoba Express Entry pathway
This pathway is for international candidates who have an active Express Entry profile. Besides, candidates also need to have skills, training and experience in one of the in-demand occupations of Manitoba and also a strong family connection to Manitoba.
Human Capital Pathway
To be eligible under Human Capital Pathway, international skilled workers must have skills, training and experience in one of the In-demand Occupations of Manitoba. They must also demonstrate that they have the potential to find employment as soon as they arrive in Manitoba.
Skilled Workers in Manitoba and International Education Stream target candidates who are already residing in Manitoba. Manitoba PNP and PNPs of other provinces offer numerous pathways for foreign skilled workers to settle in Canada. Do you wish to know more about migrating to Canada through PNP?
