    Home PNP Demand List
    Some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) have specific streams that are targeted to candidates with work experience in a specific occupation, which is in-demand in that particular province. When this is the case, there is usually no need to hold a job offer in order to be eligible to the stream. However, only a few provinces have these kinds of streams, and sometimes there are other factors that would prohibit a candidate living and working outside of Canada from applying.

    Manitoba (MPNP) has an Express Entry aligned stream, called Manitoba Express Entry pathway, in which candidates do not need a job offer to be eligible. However, they will need to have close friends and/or relatives residing in Manitoba to receive an invitation to apply.

    The list of in-demand occupations is pretty long, you can find it here. For French-speaking candidates, you can still apply even if your work experience is not listed in this list.For the Morden’s Community Driven Immigration Initiative (MCDII), the targeted in-demand jobs are:

    • Welders
    • Early Childhood Educators (children less than 5 years old)
    • Manufacturing Supervisors
    • Food Service Supervisors (fast food)
    • Construction Managers
    • Carpenters
    • Painters and Decorators (Painter in manufacturing or construction setting)
    • Cooks

    Having an experience in one of these occupations does not necessarily mean receiving a provincial nomination. Indeed, the Morden program only accepts around 50 families per year, and only the occupations that are most in need in the city of Morden will be chosen.
