Manitoba Human Capital Pathway to launch in November 2018

The new Human Capital Pathway under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program which has been indicated under MPNP Renewal is scheduled to be launched in the month of November 2018.

The biggest difference between the Human Capital Pathway (HCP) and it is very successful Express Entry Pathway is that HCP is not linked to Express Entry and hence will not require the minimum 67 MEC points that are mandatory for the creation of EE profile.
Applicants will, however, need to score at least 60 points on the MPNP grid point.
The link to their grid point is here.

Interested candidates will file an EOI with Manitoba. Successful applicants will receive LAA (Letter of Advice to Apply). On positive nomination, they can then apply to ICCRC for their permanent residence to Canada.
