Entering Manitoba through direct employment from an employer
Employers who have demonstrated an immediate and ongoing need for skilled labor may be eligible to participate in the Manitoba Direct Employment Program. These employers have the necessary conditions for employment in the desired job position and have completed all the following steps.
Qualified employers provide the MPNP with a list of qualified applicants who have a guaranteed full-time, long-term job offer with the ability and intent to live and work in Manitoba.
Applicants are evaluated based on the following criteria
Age: 21-45 years (unless a specific case outside this age range is requested by the employer)
Education: Having post-secondary education if required by the employer/intended job (in-service training may be included in tentative selections).
Work experience: At least two years of experience in the last 5 years in a profession related to the desired job.
Proficiency in the official language: a score of at least 5 in the CLB/NCLC system in each of the four skills. A score of 4 in the CLB/NCLC system for NOC C/D jobs may be sufficient at MPNP’s discretion.
Ability to adapt and settle in the community: Preference is given to the needs of the labor market outside of the central Manitoba region. Applicants with previous employment or post-secondary education in other Canadian provinces may not be approved by the MPNP.
Employers for direct employment in Manitoba are required to pay for selected labor in semi-skilled occupations (NOC C/D) to travel to the workplace and may be required to pay for return labor (if applicable). Employers are required to register their conditions on the Government of Canada’s employment portal and pay $230 in government fees, and these fees are not refundable to the workforce.
All applicants must obtain a minimum of 60 assessment points to enter this pathway.
