Candidates invited in the February 24 MPNP draw had a submitted Expression of Interest (EOI) profile under one of three immigration programs:
– Skilled Worker Overseas; or
Skilled Workers in Manitoba:
Number of Invitations issued: 206
Score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 612
International Education Stream:
Number of Invitations issued: 33
Score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: N/A
Skilled Workers Overseas:
Number of Invitations issued: 39
Score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 685
In Manitoba’s latest draw, only Skilled Workers Overseas candidates with an invitation under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative were considered for nomination. Receiving an invitation under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative provides a candidate with an additional 500 points toward their MPNP score.
Manitoba has three main skilled worker streams: Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas, and the International Education stream. To submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile, a candidate must meet the eligibility criteria for one of these three programs.
Once a candidate has submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI), Manitoba will rank the profile using their unique points grid.
In regular draws, MPNP issues “Letters of Advice of Apply” (LAA) to the highest-ranking candidates.
Successful applicants will subsequently be invited to apply to the Canadian government for permanent residency.
