Confusing information from MPNP officials

Discussion in 'Provincial Nomination Program Immigration' started by kenthething23, Apr 30, 2018.

  1. Hi

    I am currently nominee from MPNP through Skilled Worker in Manitoba-International Student Stream (I hold a PGWP). I submitted my PR application in March and have received AOR.

    I came across with a job that I want to apply for so I sent an email to the MPNP officials to see if I could switch employer, this is their response:
    "As much as possible MPNP does not encourage applicants to switch employers unless this new job is a career advancement of it is in your field of study but if it’s the same position or occupation unfortunately it may not be permitted"

    Then I asked them again after a month with the same question because I needed reassurance from them, this is what they responded:
    "If you haven’t done so please send us the following:
    - New job offer letter
    - Explanation to why you wanted to change employer
    This will then be looked at by the Program Officer"

    So it is a yes or a no? they never really answered to my question. I really don't want to risk my nomination and my whole application will be gone to waste because of me switching employer. I guess I will suck it up and stay at my miserable job until I receive my PR lol
     
  2. MPNP said you can change your job but your job must be same or is a career advancement from the same job in order to maintain your nomination. If you do change your job, MPNP will have to re-evaluate the job offer and the employer to ensure they meet the program requirements.
     

  3. "As much as possible MPNP does not encourage applicants to switch employers unless this new job is a career advancement of it is in your field of study but if it’s the same position or occupation unfortunately it may not be permitted"

    It means they don't recommend doing this but if they see you are having better career option giving you more reliable study related offer than even if you are changing employer, they will have no problem, but in case you are changing employer for same job but with different employer than they would reject it.


    "If you haven’t done so please send us the following:
    - New job offer letter
    - Explanation to why you wanted to change employer
    This will then be looked at by the Program Officer"


    He is now asking you to send him the job offer you have and with your explanation why you look forward to have this job over the one you have.
     
  4. I've seen friends in the same situation. It is taking almost two years for the Federal step to be fully processed and they know that applicants might lose/switch their jobs. My friend was in the same situation, but he lost the job. Because he was a NOC-A, he had to find another NOC-A job to keep his eligibility.
