Express Entry MPNP Expression of Interest draw

The first step for Express Entry candidates to be considered for a provincial nomination from Manitoba is to submit an Expression of Interest to the MPNP. The candidate must also have work experience in an occupation that is in demand in Manitoba, besides meeting other requirements. If they successfully obtain a provincial nomination from Manitoba, they will have 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score points added to their total CRS score. This guarantees them an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent federal Express Entry draw.

Manitoba Expression of Interest

To apply for a provincial nomination from Manitoba through either the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas category, a candidate must first submit an Expression of Interest to the MPNP. Each Expression of Interest profile is assessed on the basis of various eligibility factors that include education, work experience, previous connections to the province, language proficiency etc. and awarded a score out of 1000. The candidates with the highest score are invited to apply for a provincial nomination from Manitoba. The Skilled Workers in Manitoba candidates invited in the latest draw had a minimum score of 496, while Skilled Workers Overseas stream candidates had to score at least 672 to be invited.

To qualify under the Skilled Workers Overseas category, the candidate must demonstrate a previous connection to Manitoba in the form of close family members residing in the province, work or education experience or an invitation received through a Strategic Recruitment Initiative of the MPNP. However, it is not mandatory for the candidate to be present in Manitoba at the time of application.

In the case of Skilled Workers in the Manitoba category, the candidate must have a full-time, permanent job offer from a Manitoba employer to qualify, besides meeting other requirements.

The International Education Stream is for international students who have graduated from one of the post-secondary institutions of Manitoba and possess in-demand skills.
