Manitoba has recently released details from their October 7, 2021 draw, which invited candidates under the Skilled Workers In Manitoba, International Education, and Skilled Worker Overseas streams.

The points requirement for the  Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream has increased from the previous round of invitations, and fewer candidates were invited. The number of invitations issued to Skilled Workers Overseas has also decreased, with a higher points requirement than the previous draw.

This summer, Manitoba had invited a record-breaking number of Skilled Worker Overseas candidates that were registered under the Express Entry system. Recent MPNP draws have returned to targeting Skilled Worker Overseas candidates previously invited directly under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative. Receiving an invitation under a Strategic Initiative increases a candidate’s score by an additional 500 points. This gives these candidates an advantage in Expression of Interest draws, and a higher chance of receiving a LAA.

Those who receive a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) may apply to Manitoba for nomination. Successful nominees will be invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Manitoba’s Provincial Nominee Programs

Manitoba has three main skilled worker streams: Skilled Workers in ManitobaSkilled Workers Overseas, and the International Education stream.

As suggested by the name, the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream requires candidates to be working in the province with a job offer at the time of applying. These candidates must have been working for the employer for at least six months prior to submitting an application to MPNP.

Alternatively, the International Education Stream targets individuals who have recently completed a post-secondary credential in Manitoba. In addition, these candidates must have some work experience or business management experience in the province. They may have completed the experience either after graduation or as part of an internship or co-op during their studies.

The Manitoba Skilled Worker Overseas Stream targets skilled workers that can fill labour gaps and easily adapt to living in the province. These candidates must have a connection through either a supporter or experience in the province, or an invitation directly under a strategic recruitment initiative.

A supporter must be a friend or family member that is a permanent resident or citizen and has been living in the province for at least one year. They must be able to support the applicant’s settlement plan and prove they have sufficiently close ties to both the applicant and the province.

MPNP strategic recruitment initiatives actively involves employers in recruiting skilled workers to help to fill labour gaps in the province. Manitoba can invite candidates directly under a strategic initiative to qualify for the Skilled Worker Overseas program.

How do MPNP Expression of Interest draws work?

Once a candidate has submitted a Expression of Interest, Manitoba will rank the profile using their unique points grid.

The points system ranks candidates on language, proficiency, age, work experience, and education. These factors are often referred to as “human capital factors”. Manitoba also allocates points for adaptability; adaptability may refer to a candidate’s connection to the province, invitation under a recruitment initiative, or intention to settle outside of Winnipeg.  MPNP may also deduct “Risk Assessment” points if an applicant has a strong connection to another province.

Then, these candidates have a chance to be invited to apply for nomination; in regular draws, MPNP issues “Letters of Advice of Apply” (LAA) to the highest-ranking profiles.

Once a candidate receives an invitation, or LAA, they have 60 days to submit a complete application. At this time, applicants must remit a non-refundable application fee of $500 CAD.

Successful applicants will subsequently be invited to apply to the Canadian government for permanent residency.
