Manitoba PNP invites 243 immigration candidates in a recent draw.jpg

Manitoba issued 243 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to immigration candidates for a provincial nomination on April 8.

Selected candidates can now apply for a provincial nomination through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). If candidates receive a nomination, it will support their final application for a Canadian permanent residence.

Manitoba invited candidates through three (3) Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams: Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas, and International Education Stream. The Skilled Worker streams require that candidates have previously submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile.

The results of this recent draw are as follows:

Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 208 LAAs with a minimum EOI score of 456.

Skilled Workers Overseas: 14 LAAs with a minimum EOI score of 708.

International Education Stream: 21 LAAs with no EOI requirement.

Of the 243 LAAs, total of 15 LAAs were given to Express Entry candidates.

Manitoba has now invited a total of 1,870 Canadian immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination so far in 2021.

The Skilled Workers Overseas were invited directly by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.

Both Skilled Workers streams are designed to allow Manitoba to identify candidates who meet its labour market needs.

If you are interested to benefit from a nomination from Manitoba, candidates need to register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. This will put candidates in a position to receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.

Manitoba ranks candidates out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors, as well as their connections to the province. Candidates overseas must show connections to Manitoba through family ties, previous work experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.

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