New Provincial Immigration Pathways for Manitoba International Students

On November 1, 2018, the Government of Manitoba introduced two new pathways to permanent residence under the International Education Stream (IES). In an effort to encourage local economic growth and innovation, the two new programs specifically focus on international students who have completed their post-secondary education in the province.

The International Student Entrepreneur Pathway aims to help graduates, between the age of 21 to 35 years-old, establish and operate a business in Manitoba.  To be eligible, a student must complete a minimum two-year program at a Manitoba post-secondary institution. The student must also invest in and actively manage a business in Manitoba for at least six months before receiving a nomination from the province.

The Graduate Internship Pathway is open to international students who complete a master’s or PhD degree program at a Manitoba university and a qualifying internship supported by Mitacs. Mitacs is a national not-for-profit organization that builds partnerships between universities and industry and receives funding from the Manitoba government. Applicants must be residing in Manitoba at the time of application.

For both programs, applicants must meet certain language proficiency requirements and demonstrate an intent to reside in Manitoba after nomination.

This expansion of Manitoba’s Provincial Nominee Program reflects the important role that international students have to play in helping Canada become a leader in global innovation. With the launch of the new programs, there is great potential to attract and retain innovative and international talent in the province of Manitoba.
