Provincial Nominee Program

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Immigration Program for Business

The Province of Manitoba and Government of Canada share responsibilities regarding business people immigrating to Canada through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Immigration Program for Business.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Immigration Program for business allows Manitoba to recruit, select, and nominate qualified business people from around the world who have the intent and ability to move to Manitoba and establish or purchase a business. However Manitoba’s agreement with the Government of Canada limits the number of immigrants that we may nominate each year. Given this limitation, Manitoba will select the applicants who best meet the qualifications and who offer the most to Manitoba.

  • minimum personal net worth of CDN $350,000;
  • minimum amount of equity investment in Manitoba of CDN $150,000;
  • demonstrated business ownership experience of at least 3 years or extensive experience in senior management of a successful company; in a partnership, must have a minimum of  331/3 equity share and active management role in the business.

In most cases, the Cash Deposit will be released when the investment is made and the intended business is undertaken as outlined in your application.
