Manitoba Issued 432 Invitations for Skilled Workers Draw Under the MPNP

Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream

In a draw held on September 14, 2018, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) issued 432 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in an Expression Of Interest (EOI). The MPNP issued 200 “Letters of Advice to Apply to Manitoba Expression Of Interest” (EOI) pool candidates under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream. The lowest-scored candidate had a score of 721 under the MPNP’s points system.

Skilled Worker Overseas Stream

150 invitations were also issued to candidates under the MPNP’s Skilled Worker Overseas Stream. The lowest-ranked candidate invited through this stream had a score of 604.

Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the MPNP is the first step toward becoming a permanent resident in Manitoba. Skilled workers in Manitoba and overseas who received a Letter of Advice to Apply in the September 14 draw and whose application for a Manitoba provincial nomination is approved will then be able to submit an application for Canadian permanent residence to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

See more information about Manitoba’s Skilled Worker Immigration streams.

Candidates for this stream must have a close relative residing in Manitoba or past education/work experience in Manitoba, and a minimum language proficiency determined by the type of occupation. Work experience must include at least six months of recent work experience in an occupation in demand in Manitoba.

Skilled Worker Overseas Stream’s Strategic Recruitment Initiative

The MPNP also issued invitations to 82 candidates under the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream’s Strategic Recruitment Initiative.

The Strategic Recruitment Initiative includes overseas recruitment missions where candidates are interviewed by MPNP representatives and those found to be eligible are issued Letters of Advice of Apply.

All candidates invited by the MPNP have 60 days to submit a complete application for a provincial nomination through their online MPNP account.
