MPNP Manitoba Express Entry Pathway

The Manitoba Express Entry Pathway is a part of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) introduced in 2018. It allows the province to nominate skilled individuals from the Express Entry pool aligned with Manitoba’s labour market needs. Candidates selected from this pathway receive 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), making them eligible for an Invitation to Apply and a chance to become a part of the Express Entry Draw.

Manitoba Express Entry Eligibility Overview

Work Experience: Candidates must have a minimum of 6 months of work experience in an occupation listed as In-Demand in Manitoba.

  • Minimum CLB/NCLC 7 for Regulated Occupations
  • Minimum CLB/NCLC 6 for Compulsory Trades
  • Minimum CLB/NCLC 5 for all other NOC 0, A, or B occupations

FAQs: Manitoba Express Entry Pathway

These are some frequently asked questions about the Manitoba MPNP Express Entry Pathway.

Can I participate in Express Entry if I have an active application with the MPNP?

Yes, you can participate in Express Entry if you have an active application with the MPNP. However, only those MPNP applicants who are directly contacted by the MPNP and advised to do so should submit an Express Entry profile, as the MPNP will otherwise not be able to assist you with your Express Entry submission.

Can I participate in Express Entry if I have already been nominated by MPNP?

No, MPNP applicants under the Skilled Worker in Manitoba or Skilled Worker Overseas streams who are already nominated should not enter Express Entry as the MPNP cannot support this application.
