A faster and easier electronic process for applying to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is now available to all applicants through MPNP Online.
MPNP Online was introduced in 2011 and nearly 4,000 priority applicants have since used the service, according to Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Christine Melnick.
"We're now proud to make this innovative online tool available to all Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program applicants. This will help simplify the process and help get skilled workers to Manitoba sooner."
Applicants using MPNP Online are now able to:
• predetermine eligibility for the program
• connect to pre-arrival services including labour market and English-language services
• reduce their chances of submitting an incomplete application and delaying the processing time.
While the paper application process for applying to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program can take up to 10 months, using MPNP Online can reduce the processing time for complete applications to an average of four months, said Melnick.
