Are you an aspiring entrepreneur looking to make your mark in Canada? Manitoba, one of Canada's most economically vibrant provinces, maybe the perfect destination for you. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) offers exciting pathways for individuals with innovative business ideas and a desire to contribute to the province's economic growth.

One such pathway for entrepreneurs (such as yourself) is Manitoba’s Business Investor Stream.

  • Entrepreneur Pathway (EP): For applicants seeking to open a business in Manitoba; and
  • Farm Investor Pathway (FIP): For applicants intending to establish and operate a farm operation in rural Manitoba.
Let's learn more about the eligibility criteria and how to submit an application under these streams.

How to Apply?

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) has launched a paper-based interim process for applying to the Business Investor Stream Entrepreneur Pathway.

STEP 1: Assess your eligibility and conduct business research. You may be eligible for more than one stream. The self-assessment will help you determine your score under the Entrepreneur pathway.

STEP 2: Submit your Expression of Interest (EOI) to the MPNP. You will need to submit certain documents along with your application including the Business Concept Form, Self-Assessment Form, and MPNP Code of Conduct. MPNP will issue either a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) if the EOI meets the Program's requirements or a feedback letter if the EOI is unsatisfactory.
