Relocate To Canada via Manitoba PNP 2022

Manitoban Provincial Nominee Program

The sure way to successfully Immigrate to Canada from Nigeria with the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).

Before you think of any questions, I would like to say that this is the legitimate guide to relocating to Canada from Nigeria with a provincial nominee program.

One of the basic questions remains, “how are Nigerians in Canada fairing or how can I apply for jobs in Canada from Nigeria?

If any of the above sounds like you, you will get every detail you need to get started.     


Why Have I Finally Written This Rugged Path To Relocating To Canada From Nigeria?

I am pessimistic that at the end of this journey, you will be able to start packing your bags and finally telling friends that you will be leaving for Canada, in the next 6-9 months of processing.

Truth is, you don’t have to wait further before you start your Provincial Nominee Program relocation process from Nigeria.


Getting Started with Provincial nomination immigration Manitoba, Canada

Just to add to that, I got this verified informant that the Government of Manitoba projects a labor shortage of over 20,000 skilled workers by 2020.

What does that mean? A vacuum to fill. 

That’s why Manitoba was the first Canadian province to establish its own immigration program, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).

Each year, some 15,000 immigrants arrive in Manitoba. The outcomes for internationally experienced workers who immigrate through the MPNP are positive.

According to a recent survey, 85 percent of Manitoba nominees were working three months after arrival, 76 percent were homeowners within five years and 95 percent of families settled permanently in the community.

Whether you simply want to visit Manitoba to explore our rich cultural history and natural beauty, come to Manitoba to work temporarily, or immigrate to our province through one of the available options, including the world-renowned Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, in this section you will find everything you need to know to be successful.

Are you good to go? If yes, scroll the page down… 


Understanding the Provincial Nomination Canada process

First things first. A province in Canada is the same as States in Nigeria. An example of a Province in Canada is Toronto. Others: Alberta and Quebec and more.

Based on their different PNP programs we have the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program, Ontario Immigration Program, Quebec Immigration Program, Manitoba Immigration Program, New Brunswick Immigration Program, Newfoundland Immigration Program, and a lot more provinces/programs. I hope you’ve grabbed this now. 


Relocating to Manitoba, Canada from Nigeria

Manitoban Provincial Nominee Program

Manitoba is a province in Canada that is among the popular Canadian Nominee programs. Truth is, as a Nigerian, Manitoba’ is your best bet.

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 a high standard of government services such as health care and education, the province offers an affordable, high-quality lifestyle.

Sure enough, the Manitoban Provincial Program runs in many ways, however, based on processed supervision, 1 route is best for you as a Nigerian. That is Direct Application without the consideration of creating a profile in the Express Entry pool.


Manitoba PNP Application Guide

Here are all the steps you need.

1. Submit your EOI

With the Manitoban Provincial Program, applicants are expected to submit their EOI – Expression of Interest.

Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) is your first step to immigration to Manitoba through the MPNP. If you are eligible under one of the Manitoban application streams, you will be able to submit an Expression of Interest.

What Do You Submit?

If you are eligible, all you will need to do is complete a series of questions online. At this point, you are not required to upload supporting documentation before submitting your profile to the EOI pool.

Manitoban Provincial Nominee Program

Your profile will be placed in a pool with other eligible candidates and you will receive a score based on the answers you provide.

From your score, they 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.

The good news is that there are no limits on the number of candidates who can submit an Expression of Interest and no deadline. The information you provide will help them determine if you are eligible to immigrate through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program.


Step 2. Get a Letter of Advice to Apply/Document Upload

Upon applying for EOI, you will receive a “Letter of Advice to Apply”.

What to do next is to upload your documents as a confirmation for your data in the EOI to be verified. No need to worry as the valid documents needed will be revealed to you.

It’s important to note that from the time of your Letter of Advice to Apply issuance, you have just 3 months – to upload your data/documents.

This is the official statement:

If you receive an LAA, you have 60 days to submit a complete application to the MPNP and you will have to provide documents to support the information you provided to us in your Expression of Interest.

If you provide false or misleading information in your EOI, it may be considered misrepresentation. Your application could be refused and you may be subject to a ban that would prevent you from applying to the MPNP for a period of two years.

Please, be proactive and act. Let’s go on to the settlement plan.


Step 3. Submit your Settlement Plan in order

Within the 3 months of uploading your documents, you will be required to submit your settlement plan.

All you need to do here is tell them why you decided to choose Manitoba and not the other provinces. You may also be asked for your work experiences and related questions.


Step 4. Receive your Nomination Certificate

From the time of document submission, it will take just 14 days to get a response.

You will get an acceptable response for the Manitoban Province if your application is approved.  


Step 5. Apply for Permanent Residence in Canada

When should you begin the process of applying for Permanent Residence in Canada? If you really want to pack your bags, do it immediately after you receive your Manitoban Nomination Certificate.

What you will be required to do here is submit your paper application. How do you know what and what to submit?

Good news:

Since you’ve been nominated, all the documents you will need to submit is BOLDLY STATED on the Nomination certificate.

That is all about the relocation process to Manitoba, Canada from Nigeria.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) seeks recent graduates, skilled workers, businesspeople, and their families with the intention and ability to successfully settle and economically establish in Manitoba as permanent residents.

While Manitoba makes it easy to immigrate and settle in its province, the key pointer with the Manitoba provincial nominee program is that, if you’re eligible then you’ll get selected and the rest is a story.
