Among the total 186 candidates who received LAAs in the latest Manitoba Expression of Interest draw, 24 were candidates who had their profiles in the federal Express Entry system.

Manitoba Expression of Interest
A candidate belonging to either Skilled Worker in Manitoba or Skilled Worker Overseas category must submit an Expression of Interest to the MPNP to receive an LAA. Each submitted EoI profile is assessed on the basis of a number of eligibility factors such as education, work experience, previous connections to the province and proficiency in either English or French. Based on this assessment, each profile is awarded a score out of 1000 and the highest scoring candidates are issued Letters of Interest to apply for provincial nomination from Manitoba.
In the January 2 Manitoba Expression of Interest draw, the minimum required score for Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream candidates was 534 and for Skilled Worker Overseas Stream candidates, the minimum score was 708.
