Manitoba invited 277 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on July 9.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited candidates from the Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas, and International Education Stream.

See below for a breakdown of the Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) issued and the minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirements.

Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 201 LAAs with a minimum EOI score of 445.

Skilled Workers Overseas: 53 LAAs with a minimum EOI score of 703.

International Education Stream: 23 LAAs with no EOI score requirement.

Of the 277 LAAs issued, a total of 48 were issued to Express Entry candidates.

The MPNP has now issued 4,999 LAAs to Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates so far in 2021.

Manitoba manages its immigration programs through the MPNP, which supports immigration applications to the federal government.

Those interested in benefiting from a nomination from Manitoba need to first register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. This allows candidates to receive an LAA through either of the Skilled Worker streams.

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

Candidates must show their connections to Manitoba through close family ties, previous experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.

To receive an invitation under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream, candidates need a full-time job offer from an employer in the province.

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