On March 9, 2022, the Government of Manitoba responded to the situation in Ukraine and in line with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), introduced a special immigration measure for Ukrainian candidates. Under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), the province invited 71 candidates who meet all MPNP eligibility criteria and are affected by ongoing events in Ukraine. To be eligible, applicants must be a Ukrainian citizen, have a minimum of CLB 4 in each language band, have connections to the province (close relative, family-like, community, previous employment or studies in Manitoba), and score at least 60 points.
