Manitoba PNP issues 355 LAAs to immigration candidates in new draw.jpg

Manitoba invited 355 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on March 25.

Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) candidates who received provincial nomination are now one step closer to permanent residency status.

Invited candidates were from Skilled Workers in Manitoba, International Education Stream, and Skilled Workers Overseas Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams. The Skilled Worker streams require that candidates have previously submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile.

Below is a detailed breakdown of the results from yesterdays draw.

Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 285 Letters of Advice (LAAs) with a minimum EOI score of 423.

International Education Stream: 41 LAAs with no EOI score requirement.

Skilled Workers Overseas: 9 LAAs with a minimum EOI score of 711.

MPNP stated that a total of 49 LAAs were given to candidates with valid Express Entry IDs and job seeker validation codes.

All Skilled Workers Overseas were from the Strategic Recruitment Initiative sub-stream.

Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program has invited a total of 1,292 candidates so far in 2021.

Manitoba has many immigration programs dedicated to attracting foreign talent to the province. Candidates who are interested in receiving a nomination from Manitoba need to make an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. By creating a profile, it enables candidates to potentially receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.

Manitoba then ranks candidates out of 1,000 points based on human capital factors as well as their connections to the province.

The Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Workers in Manitoba Streams are designed to allow Manitoba to identify candidates who meet its labour market needs.

International Graduates who complete education in Manitoba can receive an LAA under the International Education Stream if they demonstrate that they have in-demand skills.
