    Manitoba PNP Occupation In Demand List 2024-2025

    Like other provinces of Canada (except Quebec), Manitoba also has a special agreement with Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that allows the province to nominate skilled immigrants for permanent residence i.e. Canada PR Visa. This immigration program is known as the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).

    The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is one of the fastest ways to obtain permanent resident status through the Canada Express Entry Program. Manitoba has a strong demand for skilled workers and therefore sends out letters of Intent (LOIs) more often than in comparison to any other Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

    What is MPNP Occupation In-Demand Stream?

    MPNP allows the province to fulfill the need for skilled candidates in the local labor market. To identify MPNP candidates, who are able to meet the requirements of the employers of the province, MPNP has a stream: Occupation in-demand Stream.

    MPNP’s OID stream is an occupation-based stream to identify skilled candidates who are having work experience in occupations that are in demand in the province. These occupations are based on the Manitoba Labor Market Information and Occupational forecasts as well as through direct employer consultants.

    MPNP releases the occupation in-demand list (Manitoba High Demand Occupation List) on a regular basis so that they are able to update the listings of occupations that are qualified as “in-demand” in the province of Manitoba.

      What are the requirements for Manitoba’s Occupation In-Demand Stream?

      Most of the in-demand occupations are limited to specifically skilled streams of Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). Candidates are required to meet the requirements of these skilled streams. Candidates who are working in an in-demand occupation will be given priority in the Expression of Interest (EOI) draws.   

      For a Francophone (one who has French language proficiency is equal to or greater than their English language proficiency), they do not need to work in an in-demand occupation to meet the MPNP pathway’s eligibility criteria. Their language proficiency result must be supported by a Manitoba PNP approved language test. 

      Under the language proficiency requirements, Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) levels generally are very low. But for some streams/pathways, it has higher eligibility requirements.  For International Education Stream minimum CLB level 7 is required in all four skill areas (Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening) regardless of their occupation.
