Who is the HIIC and the MPNP?

The Hellenic Immigrant Initiative Committee (HIIC) and the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) are collaborating to assist Greek or Cypriot nationals who wish to immigrate and move permanently to Manitoba, Canada. The HIIC is one of the Committees of the Greek Community of Winnipeg. The MPNP is a program of the Provincial Government of Manitoba. HIIC consists of mostly Hellenic-Canadian volunteers who assist those interested, at no cost. As volunteers who live in Manitoba, we work with MPNP to assist Greek or Cypriot nationals like you to move here and be nominated to the Government of Canada to become permanent residents. The immigration process through MPNP and HIIC is fast tracked - we help open the door to Greek or Cypriot nationals wishing to immigrate to Manitoba.

The HIIC pre-screens applicants with the aim of providing MPNP with Greek or Cypriot national candidates who closely match the criteria for an Exploratory Visit. If you are invited for an interview and an Exploratory Visit, your connection to Manitoba is the Greek Community of Winnipeg, through HIIC (Factor 5 of the Points Worksheet).

There is no need to pay agents, lawyers, or consultants who ask for a service fee and might claim that they can expedite the process or assure a successful result. It is strongly recommended that those who are interested in immigrating to Manitoba, should do their homework, and read carefully the material in the following websites:
