The MPNP is locally driven and based on the needs of Manitoba employers. We select internationally trained and experienced workers who have the skills needed in the local labour market.
To better identify MPNP candidates who meet the needs of Manitoba employers, the MPNP identifies in-demand occupations based on Manitoba Labour Market Information and Occupational Forecasts, as well as through direct employer consultations. The occupations listed reference Edition 2016 of the National Occupation Classification (NOC).
The MPNP In-demand Occupations list provides a regularly updated listing of which occupations qualify as ‘in-demand’ in Manitoba.
Many occupations on the in-demand list are limited to specific skilled streams of the MPNP and candidates must meet the specific criteria and requirements for one of the specific pathways listed under each stream. Candidates working in an in-demand occupation will be prioritized during Expression of Interest draws.
Note: Francophone Candidates
For the purpose of applying to the MPNP, a Francophone is someone who has French language proficiency that is equal to or greater than their English language proficiency. Your language proficiency must be supported by results from an MPNP-approved language test.
Note: Minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) Levels
备注：最低加拿大语言等级标准 （CLB） 级别
The CLB levels listed in the in-demand occupations list are the minimum levels across all Skilled Worker streams; however, some streams/pathways have higher eligibility requirements. For example, people applying under the International Education Stream require a minimum of CLB 7 in all four skill areas (reading, writing speaking, listening) regardless of their occupation.
在紧缺职业列表中列出的 CLB 级别是所有技术类工作者需要达到的最低基准；然而，某些移民类或路径具有更高的资格要求。例如，在申请国际留学生教育类移民项目下的人，无论其职业如何，他们都需要在所有的四个技能领域（阅读，写作 口语，听力）达到至少CLB 7的级别。
