Business owners with the required experience and funds can apply under the Entrepreneur pathway to settle in Manitoba, manage a business and get a provincial nomination to support their Express Entry application. Over the years, Manitoba has been a welcoming province for newcomers looking to start a new life in Canada.

The entrepreneur pathway allows the province to recruit and nominate eligible foreigners to move to Manitoba and start their own business under a temporary work permit. After two years of establishing their Canadian company, entrepreneurs can apply for permanent residency.
