The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) held its latest draw on September 12, resulting in 347 invitations to skilled foreign workers and international graduates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. The MPNP allows the province of Manitoba to nominate economic-class immigration candidates for Canadian permanent residence.
If their nomination is approved, these 347 candidates will be issued an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. The additional points place them in a favorable position to receiving a federal Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in a future Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) draw.
Expressions of Interest from Skilled Worker Overseas candidates have not been considered in this draw unless they:
were directly invited by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
Candidates invited under the Express Entry sub-stream who do not have a valid Express Entry ID and job seeker validation code and verifiable experience in an occupation on Manitoba’s In-demand Occupations listwill be refused.
If your score is higher than that of the lowest-ranked candidate, but you have not received an Letter of Advice to Apply, this could be because:
You have indicated that you have taken an approved third-party language test to demonstrate your language ability in English/French, but have not provided a valid Test Number in your EOI or your language test is no longer valid
You have indicated that you have received an Invitation to Apply to the MPNP under a Strategic Initiative, but did not provide a valid Invitation Number
Please note that for each question in EOI, help text is available, providing detailed information on the information you should enter. If one of these scenarios applies to you, you may wish to update your EOI with the correct information in order to be considered for the next draw from the EOI pool.
Candidates who indicated that they are working in a regulated occupation and are fully licensed to work in Manitoba have been selected in this draw. However, the MPNP may not accept or may refuse full applications from those candidates who are not actually working in a regulated occupation and/or fail to provide proof of having undergone all necessary licensing steps to be employed in Manitoba. If this applies to you, you may wish to consider declining your Letter of Advice to Apply.
You may pre-qualify for a Canada immigration program.
