The Provincial Nominee Program for Business allows Manitoba to recruit and nominate qualified business people from around the world who have the intent and ability to move to Manitoba and establish, purchase a business or become partners in an existing business.
The MPNP-B accelerates the immigration process by providing a Nomination Certificate to applicants which allows processing their immigration application by the Government of Canada faster. Unfortunately, a decision to nominate does not guarantee the issuance of a Permanent Resident (PR) Visa by CIC.
In order to apply under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program for Business (MPNP- B), a prospective applicant must submit an EOI (Express of Interest) and receive an advice from the MPNP-B to apply. MPNP-B will select the highest scoring applicants from the EOI pool based on eligibility requirements and selection factors and issue them a Letter of Advice to Apply. Priority is given to the applicants who have the greatest potential to become economically established in Manitoba. After application approval under MPNP-B applicant has to sign the Deposit Agreement and transfer refundable deposit of CDN$100,000. The funds will be held by the Manitoba Development Corporation for a period of two years from the date of landing till nominee establish a business.
