The Expression of Interest (EOI) system is a pivotal component for individuals aspiring to immigrate to Manitoba through either the Skilled Worker Stream or the International Education Stream. It’s important to note that the Business Investor Stream follows a distinct process for EOI submissions.

Initiating the immigration process in Manitoba involves the submission of an EOI, representing the initial step in the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). An EOI, while not an application per se, serves as an online profile. Prospective candidates keen on MPNP must complete a set of online questions, earning EOI ranking points based on their responses. Following this, their profiles enter a pool comprising all eligible candidates.
