Manitoba In-Demand Occupations

The MPNP is locally driven and based on the needs of Manitoba employers. We select internationally trained and experienced workers who have the skills needed in the local labour market.

To better identify MPNP candidates who meet the needs of Manitoba employers, the MPNP identifies in-demand occupations based on Manitoba Labour Market Information and Occupational Forecasts, as well as through direct employer consultations. The occupations listed reference Edition 2016 of the National Occupation Classification (NOC).

In-Demand Occupations List

The MPNP In-demand Occupations list provides a regularly updated listing of which occupations qualify as ‘in-demand’ in Manitoba.

Many occupations on the in-demand list are limited to specific skilled streams of the MPNP and candidates must meet the specific criteria and requirements for one of the specific pathways listed under each stream. Candidates working in an in-demand occupation will be prioritized during Expression of Interest draws.

The In-demand Occupations list will be regularly updated.
