Policy and Procedure
Non-resident applicants are those who apply for registration and are not living in Canada.
Agrologists Manitoba may perform an initial academic assessment for non-resident applicants and then hold the application until they arrive in Manitoba and can fulfill remaining registration requirements.
This service is aimed at streamlining the application process. It offers non-resident applicants the opportunity to gather and submit academic credentials for World Education Services Course-by-Course assessment prior to arrival in Manitoba.

- Applicants who have been given a letter of interest from a Manitoba employer.
