Manitoba PNP held its second draw in a week inviting 367 immigration candidates.jpg

Manitoba issued 367 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on April 27.

The draw was held through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). Most of the invited candidates may be eligible for the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream.

The Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream is for temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who have valid job offers in skilled occupations in the province.

Candidates were also invited through two (2) other Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams – International Education stream and Skilled Workers Overseas.

Both Skilled Worker streams have point cutoff scores since they require candidates have an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile. The Skilled Workers Overseas candidates were invited through a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.

See below for the results of today’s draw.

Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 301 LAAs with a minimum EOI score of 440.

Skilled Workers Overseas: 11 LAAs with a minimum EOI score of 721.

International Education Stream: 55 LAAs with no EOI score requirement.

Of the 367 LAAs issued, 34 LAAs were given to candidates with a valid Express Entry ID and a job seeker validation code.

Interested candidates need to register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. Manitoba then ranks candidates out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors in addition to their connections to the province.

Candidates overseas need to demonstrate connections to Manitoba through various ways such as family ties, previous experience, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.

Candidates do not need to be living in Manitoba at the time of the application to be eligible.
