Under the EOI system, candidates create a profile with MPNP and mention the key credentials like education, work experience, proficiency in English or French, among other factors. The eligible applicants are then awarded a score and the highest-ranking candidates are issued Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) on regular basis.
