You don't.  To claim the Manitoba credit, you must have been a resident of the province of Manitoba on Dec 31 and only rent or property taxes paid for a principal residence located in Manitoba can be claimed.  For purposes of the Ontario Trillium Benefit, you must have been a resident of the province of Ontario on Dec 31 and only the rent or property taxes paid for a principal residence located in Ontario can be claimed.

My wife is still resident in Manitoba but filing together defaults her to Ontario. How do we resolve that?

Because you have 2 different addresses, you will have to prepare your returns separately.
