Foreign workers who have a connection to Manitoba may be able to obtain Canadian permanent residence through the Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas (SWO) category of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) . This category of the MPNP has already undergone exciting changes in 2020, and more are coming.

For the first time since the introduction of the federal Express Entry system in 2015, Manitoba now offers a way for candidates in the Express Entry pool to apply to the province for provincial nomination through the Manitoba Express Entry Pathway , contained within the Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas category . Provincial nomination under the Manitoba Express Entry Pathway effectively guarantees an invitation to apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw , as nominees obtain 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) . Candidates who receive an ITA in an Express Entry draw can then apply to the Canadian government for permanent resident status.

A second pathway, the Manitoba Human Capital Pathway, is scheduled to come into effect in November, 2020. This pathway targets international applicants who have skilled work experience and training in one of the occupations on Manitoba’s in-demand occupations list (see below). The Human Capital Pathway will not be aligned with the Express Entry system, so potential candidates do not need an Express Entry profile and will not receive 600 CRS points if their application to the MPNP is successful – instead, they may apply directly to the Canadian government for permanent resident status.

The Moving2Canada PNP Live Tracker provides the latest information on the status of the MPNP and other Canadian immigration programs. With a major overhaul to the MPNP imminent, make sure to check back often to get the latest updates as they happen.

Immigration to Manitoba: the current situation

The criteria below apply to Expressions of Interest and applications received before the introduction of the planned changes, scheduled for November, 2020.

While a connection to Manitoba is required in order to be eligible to apply through the Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas category, this is not a sponsorship program. Potential candidates still need to demonstrate that they are a skilled worker with English or French language ability, settlement funds, and the intention to settle permanently in Manitoba. As the Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas category has a points-based assessment, potential candidates also need to obtain a score of at least 60 points for language ability, employability, education, age, and adaptability.

Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas: existing categories

There are three ways to demonstrate you have a connection to the province.

Manitoba Support

If you have close family members or friends who are Canadian permanent residents living in Manitoba, they may be able to endorse your application. Your family member or friend must have been continuously living in the province for at least one year. You will need to demonstrate close ties to your supporter, and they must be able to endorse your settlement plan and provide their contact details for your application.

Close relatives can support more than one applicant at once, but friends or distant relatives are only eligible if they (and their household) are not supporting anyone else for any other immigration program, in Manitoba or elsewhere in Canada (for example, your friend cannot endorse you if his spouse is sponsoring her parents at the same time, even though the Parent and Grandparent Program is a separate Canadian immigration program).

If your supporter has endorsed a Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas candidate before, he or she will need to show that candidate successfully settled in the province permanently. You cannot be supported by immigration representatives, Canadian elected officials and their staff, or anyone who is not a close friend or relative of you or your spouse or partner. Additionally, children cannot support their parents through this category, and a Canadian citizen or permanent resident cannot support his or her spouse or partner.

Manitoba Experience

If you have worked or studied in Manitoba before, this could be the route for you. Past workers require at least six consecutive months’ work experience in Manitoba, shown by a signed letter of reference from the employer and a copy of the work permit used. Past students need to show they attended and completed an authorized study or training program at a public or registered private post-secondary university or college in Manitoba. Graduates need to submit their study permit(s) , transcripts, and certificate, diploma, or degree.

Manitoba Invitation

Through the Strategic Recruitment initiative (SRI), Manitoba can identify and invite candidates for immigration to Manitoba through the Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas category. This is accomplished through two means: regular recruitment events overseas, linking Manitoba employers directly with job seekers; and exploratory visits, during which an applicant can research employment opportunities.

During these overseas recruitment events and exploratory visits, MPNP program officers interview likely candidates and issue Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to those who seem likely to be able to settle successfully in Manitoba. If you want to make an exploratory visit to Manitoba, you need to submit an application during a designated intake period. In order to be eligible to receive a LAA through either an overseas recruitment event or an exploratory visit, you must:

  • be aged 21 to 45;
  • demonstrate employability and adaptability;
  • have a diploma, degree, or certificate from the completion of a post-secondary study or training program of at least one year in length;
  • have at least two years’ full-time work experience in the last five years, and demonstrate you are able to find a job in that occupation in Manitoba (including any licensing or certification that may be required for regulated occupations);
  • show that you genuinely intend to settle in Manitoba (a Settlement Plan is required) and that your connection to Manitoba is stronger than your connection to any other province; and
  • submit results of at least Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 5 in each language ability from an approved language test, taken within the last two years.

The Manitoba EOI Pool

Eligible candidates under the Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas category can submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) and enter the candidate pool, at which point they will be assigned a points score out of 1,000. Top-ranking candidates are issued Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) in periodic draws from the pool, and may then submit a full application. The EOI submission is an electronic process, which involves answering some questions online and uploading supporting documents.

An EOI is valid for one year after submission – if you haven’t received a LAA after one year, your EOI will expire and you will need to submit a new one to remain in the candidate pool.

The EOI can be updated at any time, even after submission. This means that if you become eligible for a higher points score, you don’t have to wait until your EOI expires to update your situation. For example, if you take another language test or complete more work experience after you submit your EOI, you can update your profile and improve your points score.

An EOI is not an application for immigration; rather, it allows the government of Manitoba to determine candidates’ eligibility in various immigration categories. There is no limit to the number of candidates who can submit an EOI, and there is no deadline – the system is always open to receive EOIs. (Having said that, the province does reserve the right to limit EOIs from candidates in certain occupations, if there is a significant overload.)

After submitting an EOI, candidates receive a score out of 1,000 based on work experience, education, language ability, adaptability, and other factors. ‘Adaptability’ assesses a candidate’s connection to the province – for example, through relatives, work experience, or education – as such a connection may mean a candidate is likely to be able to settle successfully and long-term in the province.

Manitoba Letter of Advice to Apply

The province periodically conducts Manitoba EOI draws to invite top-ranking candidates to submit a full application to the MPNP: these candidates receive a LAA. Draws are conducted roughly every month, although historically there has been no regular schedule or advance notice for draws. Although candidates in the pool are scored out of 1,000, since draws began in May, 2015 the minimum score of any invited candidate in the Manitoba Skilled Workers category has commonly been around 500 to 600.

Once you receive a LAA, you have 60 days to complete and submit an application to the MPNP. It is strongly recommended that candidates start preparing documents when they enter the pool, as it can take some time to gather the required documents in the right format.

If your application to the MPNP is successful, you can then apply directly to the Canadian government for permanent resident status.

Manitoba — Strategic Initiative

I have been looking into the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Programme, and I was wondering if anybody knows anything about the Strategic Initiative Stream.

This is what it says online:

Strategic Initiatives
Strategic Initiatives are undertaken at the discretion of the MPNP in accordance with program needs and available resources. You are eligible to apply if you:
• participated in an exploratory visit to Manitoba, confirmed by the MPNP, and had an interview with a MPNP officer,

or
• were interviewed by a MPNP officer and received a letter of invitation to apply as part of a MPNP targeted overseas promotional initiative, How do I find out about this? Does anybody have any ideas?

or
• have the support of an ethnocultural community organization in Manitoba that will help you arrange an exploratory visit that has been pre-approved by the MPNP

Advice very welcome

Manitobain is the poster who probably knows more about this than anyone. Chances are she will be along in the next day or two.

Thank you GC44. I’ll keep an eye out for Manitobian.

lol.. and here I am

I just looked up the strategic stream info again..and am startled as I can’t see the regional/community component, which was how our region was able to make use of this stream. Now I wonder how worried I should be.
I just sent an email to my contact for this stream at PNP, to see if this is really the case ..keep fingers crossed that it isn’t.

Up to now it was the way that by getting in contact with regional or community development officers and the interest in that certain area could help you to get such an invite for exploratory visit. These were mostly given for rural areas in MB and it always depended also on education/experience and employability ..never mind the funds.

Will keep you posted.

What kind of work you do, if u don’t mind me asking? And are you interested in the rural area of Manitoba?

Have sent you a PM, check it out .

ok, doublechecked and nothing has changed. whewwww.

so, the way to go for the strategic stream is still to get in contact with regions in Manitoba (economic development officers or immigration/settlement officers if available), get informed about the region and what it has to offer and they can then help you to get an approval for an exploratory visit (if all conditions for the stream are otherwise fitting)

You can find the regional immigration offices and partners on the www.immigratemanitoba.com or feel free to PM me.

Hello all, just wondering what occupations is required for the Strategic Initiative? My family and I would like to move to Manitoba in the future, and actually would prefer to move to a rural community, but neither of us our skilled workers.

My wife has worked in retail for 20 years, and I’ve done all sorts of jobs like a jack of all and master of none. On the general stream my wife scored 54 points, but if she could get sponsored by a rural community it could give her 59 points.

Going by the little info above, would we stand any chance or are we kidding ourselves?

Going by the little info above, would we stand any chance or are we kidding ourselves?

Seven criteria for exploratory visits to Manitoba

1. You are between the ages of 21 to 49.

2. You have completed a minimum one-year post-secondary education or training program for which you received a diploma or certificate.

3. You have worked at least two years in the past five years in a full-time occupation and can demonstrate that you could be employable in Manitoba in that occupation within the first year of permanent residence in Canada.

4. You can demonstrate a minimum of six points in English or French based on the Manitoba PNP language grid and/or a minimum score of five on an IELTS exam (International English Language Testing System).

5. The MPNP is satisfied that you do not have stronger ties to other provinces in Canada and have good potential to settle permanently in Manitoba.

6. You must contact the MPNP at least two months in advance to discuss the possibility of an exploratory visit.

7. The MPNP agrees before you arrive in Manitoba to have an interview with you during your exploratory visit ►

Heh sats, try this:
convince me that you should be the one being allowed for an exploratory visit.
What makes you employable (both of you)? do you know what you can earn in your occupation in Manitoba and can you make a living out of it?
Which area of Manitoba have you looked at?
Why would you want to live in rural Manitoba. do you know what it is like? Have you been in Manitoba before (or in Canada)?
Do you have family/friends in Canada and if so, where?
Do you have sufficient funds ($10,000 for main applicant, $2,000 for every dependant) ?

When you said you went through the point system of the general stream, would you have 2 ppl giving you an affidavit?

you don’t need necessarly be a skilled worker on the list, but somehow you need to show why it would be good for MB to allow you in and that you will stay permanently. I can probably help you when it comes to community connections, if you are interested in visiting MB. but let me hear first your arguments

Hello Manitobain, thanks for the reply

Well my wife (37) has 20 years of retail experience. She’s very good at her job, she has references and certificates that she has received for her customer services skills. She has some qualifications in Sage Accounts and Bookkeeping.

Well me (38) I’ve a college qualification in the hospitality sector BII (British Institute of Inn keeping) I worked in that sector for about 10 years. Then after I’ve worked as an Editorial Assistant, Library Assistant, Correspondence Assistant and also in Accounts Receivable. These jobs where all under the same company, hence the jack of all master of none comment. The career I’d pursue in Manitoba would be as a Truck Driver, I’ve got a LGV class 1 licence but not much experience in that occupation so far.

We have no connection to Manitoba. On the general stream this is were we fail. We have looked into Manitoba, simply because the province comes across as very inviting, as if they want immigrants to apply. I also read that Manitoba has more sunshine than any other province which is another plus for us. (our climate is nearly always cloudy with rain ) Morden is the town we’ve looked at most, their video for the town states virtually no crime, this is definitely a plus. We as a family would like somewhere peaceful to live, where our children have better opportunities with more outdoor activities available.

The settlement funds we don’t have, but we own our home outright, (mortgage free) if we were to ever be granted pr, I’m sure we could sell and have the funds needed to settle.

I have a cousin that lives in Ontario, and some other distant relatives living in Canada but I’ve no idea where, or if they could/would help us.

Again thanks for your advice, it’s very much appreciated.

Hey Sats,
don’t take this personally, as I really only want to show you the weak side to work on:
«Well my wife (37) has 20 years of retail experience. She’s very good at her job, she has references and certificates that she has received for her customer services skills. She has some qualifications in Sage Accounts and Bookkeeping.»
Sorry to say, but most likely this will not count for much here. Retail work is considered low skilled (apart from manager positions), employers train ppl usually hands-on, so while she might be easily employable, I don’t think she stands a chance as main applicant. I am not in retail, so don’t know if the above accounting program is used here, but general knowledge in accounting/bookkeeping is never bad.

«Well me (38) I’ve a college qualification in the hospitality sector BII (British Institute of Inn keeping) I worked in that sector for about 10 years. Then after I’ve worked as an Editorial Assistant, Library Assistant, Correspondence Assistant and also in Accounts Receivable. These jobs where all under the same company, hence the jack of all master of none comment.»
This might have more potential. Would need to know more about the kind of work you did while in hospitality and how long ago that would have been.

» The career I’d pursue in Manitoba would be as a Truck Driver, I’ve got a LGV class 1 licence but not much experience in that occupation so far.»
Forget that as an start! a) you need to redo your trucking license, which is clearly not for free and b) without experience you have very low chances of getting hired coming new to the country (of course you can do what you want, once you have PR. )

«We have no connection to Manitoba. On the general stream this is were we fail.»
yup.

«We have looked into Manitoba, simply because the province comes across as very inviting, as if they want immigrants to apply. I also read that Manitoba has more sunshine than any other province which is another plus for us. (our climate is nearly always cloudy with rain)»
you made a good case there

«Morden is the town we’ve looked at most, their video for the town states virtually no crime, this is definitely a plus. We as a family would like somewhere peaceful to live, where our children have better opportunities with more outdoor activities available.»

Great that you looked already at different towns/places. Pluspoints there You will find the same being true for almost every small town in Manitoba. I am from a different area in Manitoba check out www.town.rossburn.mb.ca , we have added outdoor activities through the approximity of the Riding Mountain National Park. otherwise usually the biggest crimes are those darn speeding tickets

«The settlement funds we don’t have, but we own our home outright, (mortgage free) if we were to ever be granted pr, I’m sure we could sell and have the funds needed to settle.»
This is where you would fail! You HAVE to be able to show settlement funding when applying for PNP. You can use though your house to do that, if you have it assessed and the value can be proven at least as high (preferable higher) as the settlement funding needed. You have to show though too, that the funds are easy accessible, which would mean in your specific case, probably a letter from the bank saying that they would lent you the needed amount against the house, if need be.

«I have a cousin that lives in Ontario, and some other distant relatives living in Canada but I’ve no idea where, or if they could/would help us.»
Forget them. It will be hold against you if you have family in Ontario, but you apply for PNP in Manitoba, chances that you stay permanently in MB is considered lower in that case. Cousin is far enough out, that you don’t need to mention them..especially if you don’t have much contact with them.

If your heart is set on Morden, do contact the immigration/settlement contact over there. I know they are usually very busy, as their amount of immigrants is way higher than ours (lot of immigrants from Germany), do mention the strategic stream right away. Strategic stream works through communities, contact with communities prior to contacting PNP is essential.

If you like our area, you can give me as well a PM

Manitoba Outlines Immigration Strategy for 2020 and Beyond

December 21, 2020 by CIC News

The government of Manitoba has released a new Labour Market Strategy for immigration through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). This province, located in central Canada, has been an increasingly popular destination for newcomers to Canada over recent years, principally due to plentiful job opportunities and a high standard of living.

The new immigration strategy will aim to match nominees to priority labour market demands. Although it is expected that most nominees under the skilled worker categories will be nominated with a job offer, a portion will be nominated without a job offer; this latter group may then be matched to jobs upon arrival in the province.

Why a new strategy?

The new strategy comes only a few months after a change of government in Manitoba, with the Progressive Conservatives having taken office from the outgoing Manitoba New Democratic Party (NDP) government in April.

Manitoba’s Labour Market Projections for 2020–2022 indicate an ongoing need for immigrant skilled workers who have sector- and occupation-specific skills, as well as for entrepreneurs who can start businesses that will create local jobs. It is projected that over the coming years there will be 167,700 job openings from both expansion and replacement of existing labour, and about 25 percent of this demand will need to be filled by new immigrants. The sectors with the highest demand include sales and service, business and finance, trades and transportation, and health, and most job openings will require workers with the right training and skill sets.

In its 2020 Immigration Levels Plan, the federal government provided increased immigration targets through the economic categories, and stated its aim to increase immigration levels even further over time. As a result, the government of Manitoba is confident that it can increase its share of nominations over the coming years. The province aims to improve the existing MPNP Expression of Interest system for skilled workers by connecting more with employers and providing a clearer pathway to permanent residence to international students, as well as foreign workers in Manitoba and overseas.

The province aims to move the MPNP more towards a demand-driven model based on better labour market information and performance measurement.

The MPNP in its current state

The vast majority (98 percent) of all MPNP nominations issued last year were in the Skilled Worker categories. Of this 98 percent, 58 percent of those nominations were issued to foreign workers and 42 percent to international students who had graduated from a Designated Learning Institution in Manitoba. The remaining nominations were issued through the business categories.

Over recent months, MPNP draws under the Skilled Workers Overseas sub-category have focused on candidates who were directly invited by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.

These initiatives include:

  • Recruitment missions. These overseas employment/immigration fairs involve MPNP representatives interviewing foreign skilled workers and subsequently inviting them to apply after they have made a formal Expression of Interest (EOI) to the MPNP.
  • Exploratory visits. The MPNP may invite people who have undertaken a pre-approved Exploratory Visit and passed an interview with a program official.

Toward a future MPNP

In its draft plan, the government of Manitoba has pinpointed a number of ways in which the MPNP may become more dynamic through a number of industry and education partnerships, as well as further segmentation of the province’s immigration allocation to allow for more targeted recruitment of newcomers.

The province has provided the following blueprint for a future MPNP, beginning in 2020. The province notes that these figures are in the planning stage only, and the ultimate make-up of the program may become slightly different.

Other changes to come in 2020

Currently, there is no government application processing fee for applicants who are invited to apply to the MPNP as a skilled worker. However, as of April, 2020 a non-refundable fee of $500 will be introduced, the proceeds of which the provincial government says will be used to help eliminate the existing backlog in applications. This fee will only be charged to candidates drawn from the Expression of Interest pool and invited to submit a complete application to the MPNP.

The government states that it will then launch new nomination pathways and program improvements, outlined above, after April, 2020.

Launch a New Life in Manitoba

Take Advantage of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)

A low cost of living. A high standard of living. A low unemployment rate. And enough natural beauty to satisfy even the most die-hard outdoorsman. There’s a world of opportunity awaiting you in the province of Manitoba.

Manitoba is seeking highly qualified candidates and investors, as well as those willing to settle in certain rural areas. You’ll find details about Manitoba’s current needs below.

Skilled Worker

The Skilled Worker categories operate through an ‘Expression of Interest’ system, whereby eligible candidates complete a series of questions online and are not required to upload supporting documentation before submitting their profile into the EOI pool. Profiles will be placed in the pool with other eligible candidates and you will receive a score based on the answers you provide. The MPNP will then rank you using several factors and if you are among the highest-scoring candidates, you may be invited to submit an application to the MPNP. There are no limits on the number of candidates who can submit an Expression of Interest and no deadline.

There are two pathways to Manitoba as a skilled worker, both of which operate under the MPNP Expression of Interest System.

Skilled Worker Overseas

The Manitoba Skilled Worker overseas category uses a points-based system to assess candidates, who may be outside of Canada. Applications are accepted from qualified skilled workers who can demonstrate a strong connection to the province through family or friends (Manitoba Support), past education or employment (Manitoba Experience), or by invitation of the MPNP (Manitoba Invitation), and who score a minimum of 60 points according to five eligibility factors: age, language proficiency, work experience, education and adaptability.

Skilled Worker in Manitoba

Under the Skilled Worker in Manitoba category, applications are accepted from qualified temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who are currently working in Manitoba and have been offered a permanent, full-time job with their Manitoba employer. Unlike the other connections to Manitoba in the MPNP, Skilled Worker in Manitoba are not subject to a points-based assessment to determine their eligibility.

Manitoba Invitation

MPNP на регулярной основе выдает Invitations to Apply (приглашение подать заявление на иммиграцию) кандидатам – квалифицированным работникам, которые определяются провинцией как часть Стратегической инициативы по трудоустройству (Strategic Recruitment Initiatives). Приглашение Invitation to Apply выдается исключительно на усмотрение MPNP.

Миссии по трудоустройству (Recruitment Missions)

Представители MPNP регулярно ездят за границу в рамках так называемых «Выездных сессий по трудоустройству», часто в сопровождении работодателей из провинции Манитоба.

Расписания «Выездных сессий по трудоустройству» нет. Вся информация о планируемых «Выездных сессиях по трудоустройству» появляется на сайте http://www.immigratemanitoba.com/ приблизительно за месяц до «Выездной сессии». Чтобы подать заявление на участие в сессии, кандидаты на иммиграцию должны владеть английским на уровне, необходимом для работы (job-ready English), сдать IELTS и / или TEF, и предоставить свое резюме на рассмотрение MPNP на английском или французском языке.

ЯЗЫК

Заявители с профессиями NOC C и D должны владеть английским языком минимально на уроне CLB 4 и предоставить результаты теста в своем иммиграционном заявлении.

Открыта программа провинции Манитоба – EXPLORATORY VISITS 2020

В определенные периоды времени провинция Манитоба рассматривает заявки от потенциальных иммигрантов, готовых осуществить так называемый exploratory visit (исследовательский визит) в провинцию Манитоба.

Exploratory visit – это заранее подготовленный визит в Манитобу кандидатов по иммиграционной программе MPNP (Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program). Визит осуществляется с целью знакомства с провинцией Манитоба, а также исследования возможностей трудоустройства, чтобы потенциальные иммигранты по программе MPNP смогли принять взвешенное решение о том, имеют ли они намерения и возможности найти работу и остаться со своими семьями в провинции Манитоба на постоянной основе.

Исследовательские визиты – это один из шансов иммигрировать в провинцию Манитоба по программе MPNP (Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program) для тех кандидатов -квалифицированных работников, у которых нет возможности иммигрировать по другим программам, предложенных провинцией Манитоба. Установление связи с провинцией Манитоба, в том числе во время исследовательского визита, является обязательным требованиям по всем программам MPNP.

Важно: заявки на исследовательские визиты, в которых указано, что заявитель уже организовал поездку в Манитобу, прибыл в Манитобу или будет находиться в Манитобе на протяжении определенного количества времени в течениие года, не будут рассматриваться в приоритетном порядке.

Критерии отбора кандидатов для участия в программе Manitoba Exploratory visits могут меняться, но будут включать в себя следующее:

Возраст заявителей – 21 – 45 лет

Заявитель может продемонстрировать свои возможности трудоустроиться и адаптироваться в Манитобе, согласно требованиям MPNP (Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program)

Минимально 1 год высшего образования или профессионального образования и полученный диплом, степень или сертификат об окончании образования

2 года опыта работы в полную занятость за последние пять лет, а также возможность продемонстрировать способность найти работу в Манитобе по профессии. Сюда входят также планы касательно получения лицензии / сертификации, если ваша специальность регламентируется в Манитобе (врачи, медсестры, преподаватели и т.д.)

иметь подлинное намерение и экономически обоснованную возможность остаться в провинции Манитоба на постоянное место жительства. Именно это будет демонстрировать потенциальный кандидат на иммиграцию в своем Settlement Plan.

предоставить MPNP (Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program) во время подачи заявки на участие в Exploratory visit результаты языкового теста (английского и / или французского), который был сдан в течении последних двух лет на баллы, не ниже уровня CLB 6 (Сanadian Language Benchmark) по каждому разделу теста и с общим баллом не ниже CLB 6.

Маршрут исследовательского визита

Программа MPNP предоставляет инструкции относительно того, что делать во время исследовательского визита, а также какие документы нужно привезти с собой (например, документы об образовании, справки с работы и т.д.). Действия, которые нужно предпринять во время визита, могут включать в себя встречи с потенциальными работодателями, консультации с органами, регламентирующими профессии, встречи с риэлторами на предмет аренды или покупки жилья, встречи в школах и других учреждениях, которые помогут вам познакомиться с жизнью в провинции Манитоба.

Важно: получение приглашения на посещение Манитобу, а также сам визит в Манитобу и, в последующем, получение Invitation to Apply (приглашения подать документы по программе MPNP) не гарантирует, что ваше MPNP заявление будет одобрено.

Подать документы на исследовательский визит можно:
По электронной почте Этот адрес электронной почты защищён от спам-ботов. У вас должен быть включен JavaScript для просмотра. .

К письму должно быть приложено ваше резюме (на английском или французском языке), а также результаты IELTS / TEF с минимальным уровнем CLB 6.
Если вас пригласят посетить провинцию Манитоба в рамках программы Exploratory visit, провинция Манитоба свяжется с вами. Ваши данные будут сохраняться в течении года, и провинция может связаться с вами в любой период времени в течение года, если это будет необходимо. Если в течение года вы не получите email от MPNP, вы должны будете использовать другие постоянно возникающие возможности иммигрировать в провинцию Манитоба: как по программе Exploratory Visit, так и по другим программам.

В целях экономии времени, существуют калькуляторы, которые позволяют проверить соответствие уровней СLB и результатам полученных вами тестов. Вот ссылки:

Один из простых способов иммигрировать в Канаду. Понаехали in Canada.

Доброго времени суток, дорогие друзья Пикабушники, в связи с тем, что каждую неделю, ко мне приходят в Контакт сообщения вот такого типа: «Как уехать в Канаду, и дорого ли это все будет стоить?»

Я решил сегодня рассказать об одном из самых простых способов переехать в Канаду, о Провинциальных иммиграционных программах, а именно о иммиграции в Канаду, через провинцию Манитоба.

Преимущество провинциальных иммиграционных программ (в том числе и программы провинции Manitoba) состоит в том, что по ним могут успешно пройти те, кто не проходит по общефедеральным требованиям.

Манитоба — канадская провинция, расположенная в центре страны в регионе Канадские Прерии. Провинция в основном равнина, на её территории насчитывается более 110 тысяч озёр. Для Манитобы характерен континентальный климат.

В провинции проживает более 1 200 000 человек. Преобладающей отраслью экономики провинции является сельское хозяйство, в основном, сосредоточенное в плодородных южной и западной частях провинции. Кроме того, в провинции развиты транспорт, горнодобывающая и обрабатывающая промышленность, лесное хозяйство, энергетика, туризм.

В 2015 году для программы провинции Манитоба установлена квота в 5000 мест.

Основные категории — те же: профессиональная и бизнес категории иммиграции. Программой провинции Манитоба предусмотрено несколько потоков (assessment streams) или подкатегорий подлежащих рассмотрению:

— На основании работы в Манитобе или наличия приглашения на работу от работодателя в Манитобе. Подобное приглашение должно быть одобрено властями провинции (MPNP), то есть работодатель сначала подает на утверждение свою «заявку» на работника, а уж затем оформляет приглашение на работу (job offer);

— На основании учебы в провинции Манитоба (получения среднего образования) и наличия приглашения на работу;

— На основании наличия близких родственников в провинции Манитоба и их гарантий финансовой поддержки. При этом заявители должны соответствовать требованиям к возрасту, образованию, опыту работы, знанию английского языка;

— На основании поддержки местной общины. При этом заявители должны соответствовать требованиям к возрасту, образованию, опыту работы, знанию английского языка;

— На основании общих критериев отбора. Заявитель должен быть в возрасте 17-ти лет и старше, иметь близкого родственника в Провинции Манитоба или иметь не менее двух письменных гарантий от дальних родственников, проживающих в Манитобе, или иметь завершенную программу обучения в Манитобе, или иметь опыт работы в провинции не менее 6-ти месяцев.

Для этой подкатегории (5.) действует система баллов: Возраст: 10 баллов в диапазоне от 21 до 49 лет.

Образование (например, 16 баллов, если количество лет учебы 14 лет). Максимальное количество баллов за образование — 20. Опыт: 4 балла за каждый год (максимум 16). Английский/французский язык: максимальное количество баллов — 18.

Оценка уровня языка достаточно любопытная: 4 балла при слабом уровне, но достаточном для общения на своем рабочем месте; 5 баллов — слабый уровень, но заявитель получает некоторую подготовку (some instruction); 6 баллов — слабый уровень, но заявитель продемонстрировал способности трудоустроиться в Манитобе; 7 баллов — заявитель изучал язык в школе и доказал, что его уровня достаточно для трудоустройства. 8 баллов при наличии хотя бы 2 лет обучения после средней школы или, по меньшей мере, 2 года опыта работы; 9 баллов прошел (от года до двух) курс обучения языку; 10 баллов — заявитель погружен в языковую среду, то есть учится или работает последние 2 года; 12 баллов — свободное владение языком.

Второй язык (французский) оценивается от 1 до 6 баллов.

То есть, если заявителя берут или приглашают на работу, то это уже 7 баллов при, скажем, слабом знании английского языка.

И последний критерий — способность к адаптации:

наличие близких родственников (дети, родители, прародители, братья/сестры, тети/дяди, двоюродные братья и сестры) дает 12 баллов;

наличие дальних родственников (и заверенные письма поддержки хотя бы от 2 из дальних родственников) — 5 баллов;

Опыт работы в провинции (минимум 6 месяцев) — 10 баллов;

Среднее образование, полученное в Манитобе, или обучение не менее 2 лет — 10 баллов;

Учеба в провинции от 8 до 18 месяцев — 5 баллов;

Намерение проживать и работать за пределами Виннипега — 5 баллов

Помимо вышеперечисленных баллов, офицер региональной программы может начислить свои баллы за его субъективную оценку способности заявителя успешно обосноваться в провинции Манитоба

Заявитель должен набрать не менее 55 баллов по общей подкатегории.

Но наиболее предпочтительным вариантом для иммиграции является, конечно, подкатегория или поток №1. Он приоритетный в плане оперативности рассмотрения и напрямую связан с работой и работодателем (на английском языке, кстати, он так и называется — Employer Direct — Priority Assessment Stream). Рассмотрение, как известно, занимает время. Но в данном случае заявитель, имея приглашение на работу, может подать на временную рабочую визу и начинать жить и работать в провинции, пока его документы на постоянное жительство рассматриваются. Списка профессий более не существует. Но появились профессии, ограниченные рядом требований. Это все профессии, которые требуют лицензии. Без наличия лицензии представителей этих профессий рассматривать не будут.

Иммиграционные власти провинции считают, что заявители, успешно прошедшие отбор, должны иметь определенные начальные средства для жизни в провинции (10 000 канадских долларов на основного заявителя и по 2 000 на члена семьи).

И еще 5 баллов за желание поселиться за пределами Виннипега

Как видно из таблицы набрать проходной балл не так уж трудно. Гораздо труднее доказать свое пристрастие к провинции.

Отдельные возможности предоставляются тем, кто живет в провинции по временному виду на жительство (проходит курс обучения или работает), имеет родственников или друзей, проживающих в провинции.

В последнее время большую популярность завоевала программа под названием strategic initiatives. В соответствии с этой программой можно подать свои данные в иммиграционные органы провинции с целью получить приглашение на интервью в одном из европейских городов (если выездные интервью будут по-прежнему планироваться) или подать запрос на ознакомительный визит в Манитобу, который предполагает не только знакомство с провинцией, но и прохождение там интервью. И в том, и другом случае требуется не только продемонстрировать свои профессиональные качества, но и обосновать причины выбора именно этой провинции. Если интервью прошло успешно, то готовится и подается полный пакет документов в иммиграционные органы провинции на предмет одобрения и получения сертификата отбора (номинации). После этого документы вместе с сертификатом подаются в центр рассмотрения в Сидней и затем дело переходит в иммиграционный отдел посольства Канады в Москве, где заявитель проходит рутинные проверки на достоверность информации, криминал, безопасность и состояние здоровья.

Помимо провинциальной программы действует еще и отдельная программа города Морден (этой же провинции, но об этом позже).
