Manitoba PNP invites 399 Skilled Workers Overseas and Express Entry candidates
Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) issued 399 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to immigration candidates on April 19.
The MPNP invited candidates who may be eligible for the Skilled Workers Overseas stream.
Usually, Manitoba holds three Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws at a time with a few Express Entry candidates. This draw was only through one stream and did not include any Skilled Workers in Manitoba or International Education Stream candidates.
Below is a breakdown of the results from MPNP’s recent draw.
30 candidates issued LAAs through the strategic recruitment initiative with an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 703.
369 candidates issued LAAs who had an IRCC Express Entry ID and job seeker validation code with an EOI score of at least 708.
All candidates now have sixty (60) calendar days to apply for a provincial nomination.
Manitoba has invited 2,269 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination through its PNP so far this year.
The MPNP supports immigration application to the federal government.
To be eligible for the MPNP, candidates need to register an Expression of Interest. This puts candidates in a position to receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
The province then ranks candidates out of 1,000 points based on their human capital factors as well as connections to the province.
Both Skilled Workers streams are designed to allow Manitoba to identify candidates who meet their labour market needs.
To demonstrate connections to the province, candidates should show close family ties, previous experience in Manitoba, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. Candidates do not to be living in Manitoba at the time of their application to be eligible.
To receive an invitation under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream, candidates need to have a full-time job offer from a provincial employer.
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.
