Immigrants who wish to settle in Manitoba and establish a business are encouraged to apply to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program Business Investor Stream Entrepreneur Pathway (MPNP-BIS-ENP). The program’s aim is to attract business-minded immigrants who want to either own or start their own business in Manitoba. Unlike other provincial business immigration programs, MPNP provides a permanent residence pathway.
Canada’s government wants to show immigrants that it is ready to make good on its promise to welcome immigrants with open arms. It is especially welcoming to entrepreneurs and innovators. It attempts to attract these through its Start Up Visa Program, which was created to create new economic opportunities, both for immigrants and residents, and to spur the economy to new heights.
