Manitoba recently held an Expression of Interest (EOI) draw issuing 322 new Letters of Advice to Apply (LAA) for provincial nominations. It is the first provincial draw from the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) in 2023.
January 12 MPNP draw was the 165th provincial draw since 2015 and led to
- 260 invitations with a minimum score of 734 under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream
- 20 invitations with a minimum score of 713 under the Skilled Workers Overseas stream
- 42 invitations under the International Education Stream provincial stream.
Among the invited, 27 candidates had active Express Entry profiles, thereby receiving 600 additional points to their CRS score and effectively guaranteeing an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residency in the upcoming Express Entry draws.
Each year some 15,000 people from countries all over the world move to Manitoba in search of better career opportunities and a standard of life. Profiles with work experience in Health, Business, Finance, Sales, and Administration jobs usually receive provincial nominations from the prairie Canadian province of Manitoba.
Further, EOIs from Skilled Worker Overseas candidates have only been considered if they:
- were directly invited by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative, or
- have a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code.
How to Qualify for Upcoming Manitoba PNP Draws?
To qualify for upcoming Manitoba PNP draws, interested applicants must first register their EOI with the province. An EOI is often mistaken for an application, but it is simply an online profile of anyone interested in receiving provincial nominations from the MPNP. The validity of the EOI profile in Manitoba is one year.
An EOI profile is evaluated and assessed for 1,000 points based on core human capital, mainly work experience, education, and language proficiency. Depending on the profile assessment score, you may qualify for receiving LAAs through the following provincial streams:
|If you are applying from outside Canada||Skilled Worker Overseas Stream:
|If you are already in Canada on temporary work permits||Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream:
|If you studied in Manitoba||International Education Stream:
