MPNP Expression of Interest

Inn general, to be considered for MPNP nomination a candidate must first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). Candidates are then scored based on their education, work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to Manitoba, among other details. The minimum score required for the June 20 EOI draw was:

  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 475
  • Skilled Workers Overseas: 599
    • Strategic Recruitment Initiative candidates: 704

Note:

  1. Expressions of Interest from Skilled Worker Overseas candidates have not been considered in this draw unless they:
    • have a close relative residing in Manitoba or past education or work experience in Manitoba, at least 6 months of recent experience in an occupation on Manitoba’s In-demand Occupations list, and a minimum language proficiency of CLB/NCLC 5 unless work experience is primarily in a regulated occupation (minimum CLB/NCLC 7) or a compulsory trade (CLB/NCLC 6); or
    • were directly invited by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative; or
    • have a valid Express Entry ID and job seeker validation code and at least 6 months of recent experience in an occupation on Manitoba’s In-demand Occupations list.
    • 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 list will be refused.
  2. 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your language ability in English/French, but have not provided a valid Test Number in your EOI or your language test is no longer valid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.
  3. 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.
