Manitoba Work Experience Pathway

Manitoba Work Experience Pathway

The Manitoba Work Experience Pathway is a Canadian permanent residence pathway for individuals currently working in the Manitoba on a temporary work permit.

 

This pathway, which is set to launch in November 2018, is designed for temporary workers or international students currently working on either a temporary work permit or Post-Graduation Work Permit.

This pathway will also consider international graduates who have attended post-secondary educational institutions outside Manitoba and who have at least one year experience working in an in-demand occupation in Manitoba.

This page will continue to be be updated as the Government of Manitoba releases more details about the Manitoba Work Experience Pathway.
