In the latest Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) draw held on July 18, a total of 173 skilled workers were invited to apply for provincial nomination. The invitations from Manitoba PNP, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), were issued through three MPNP immigration streams: Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas and International Education. The number of invitations issued to candidates under each of these categories is as follows:
Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 110
Skilled Workers Overseas: 40
International Education: 23
Of the total number of LAAs issued, 29 were issued to federal Express Entry candidates. These candidates, if successfully obtain provincial nomination from Manitoba, will receive 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score points that would ensure them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent Express Entry draw. All the 40 Skilled Workers Overseas candidates invited in the July 18th draw were directly invited by the Manitoba PNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
Minimum scores required in the July 18 Manitoba PNP draw were:
Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 539
Skilled Workers Overseas: Strategic Recruitment Initiative candidates: 718
With the latest draw, the total number of LAAs issued by Manitoba PNP so far in 2019 has touched 5506.
Manitoba PNP Expression of Interest
The first step for a candidate to be considered for provincial nomination under most of the skilled worker sub-streams of Manitoba PNP is to submit an Expression of Interest (EoI). Each eligible EoI profile is awarded a score on the basis of a number of factors such as education, work experience, proficiency in English or French, previous connections to Manitoba among others. The highest scoring candidates are invited in the Manitoba PNP draws that are conducted regularly.
