  • Ukrainian Citizenship: Applicants must hold Ukrainian citizenship.
  • Language Proficiency: A minimum of CLB 4 in each language band was required.
  • Connection to Manitoba: Candidates needed to demonstrate ties to the province, such as having close relatives, community connections, previous employment, or having pursued studies in Manitoba.

What Happens Next?

While the special measures for Ukrainian nationals have concluded, eligible Ukrainians can still submit their Expression of Interest applications and participate in regular EOI draws. This ensures that opportunities for immigration to Manitoba remain accessible to qualified candidates.

In 2024 alone, Manitoba extended invitations to 2,676 candidates through its various immigration streams, with 902 invitations specifically extended to Ukrainian nationals.

Conclusion of Special Immigration Measures

The conclusion of the MPNP Ukraine Special Measures Expression of Interest draws aligns with the conclusion of the federal government’s Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) program, which ended on March 31, 2024. As these special measures conclude, it’s essential for prospective immigrants to be aware of the evolving landscape of immigration policies and opportunities.

What Applicants Should Know

Applicants should note that other pathways to immigration, such as the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Pathway, remain open. For instance, individuals who hold a CUAET and have worked in Manitoba for at least six months may be eligible to apply under the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Pathway.

While the special measures tailored for Ukrainian candidates have come to an end, Manitoba continues to welcome skilled immigrants through various pathways. Prospective candidates are encouraged to stay informed about the latest updates and opportunities in Manitoba’s immigration landscape.
