If you’ve been invited
If you have been invited to apply for the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), here are the steps you should follow:
STEP 1: Review your Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA): The LAA will outline the next steps you need to take, the deadline for submitting your application, and any documents that are required.
STEP 2: Complete your application: You will need to complete and submit the Manitoba PNP application form along with all the required documents. This may include educational credentials assessment, language test results, work experience letters, and other supporting documents.
STEP 3: Pay the application fee: There is a non-refundable application fee that must be paid before your application can be processed.
STEP 4: Submit your application: Once your application is complete, you can submit it to the Manitoba PNP. Make sure to double-check that all the required documents are included and that the application fee has been paid.
STEP 5: Wait for the decision: The Manitoba PNP will review your application and make a decision on whether to approve or refuse your nomination. If your application is approved, you will receive a nomination certificate, which you can use to apply for permanent residency with the federal government.
STEP 6: Apply for permanent residency: With your nomination certificate in hand, you can now apply for Canada PR with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Your application will be processed by IRCC, and you will need to meet their requirements for permanent residency.
It is important to note that receiving an invitation to apply for the Manitoba PNP does not guarantee that you will be approved for permanent residency. You will still need to meet all the eligibility requirements and pass the federal government's background checks.
Don't wait. The time will never be just right.
