Prospective immigrants to Manitoba may consider the category of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) that caters for family immigration. If the prospective immigrant is successful under this category it will result in the issuing of a provincial nomination certificate.
The family category, under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), is designed to assist Manitoba immigrant families who wish to sponsor eligible family members to the Manitoba region.
