Manitoba has issued 354 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination to candidates in its Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
A total of 318 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) were issued to candidates with a profile in the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Expression of Interest (EOI) pool. The lowest-ranked Skilled Worker in Manitoba candidate who received an LAA in this invitation round had a score of 500.
Another 36 invitations were issued to Skilled Workers Overseas candidates identified through a Strategic Recruitment Initiative and the lowest-ranked had a score of 617. These overseas recruitment missions are conducted regularly by representatives of the Manitoba government, often in partnership with Manitoba employers.
Candidates in both the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas streams are awarded a score based on the answers they provide when completing their Expression of Interest profile, which is the mandatory first step for anyone who would like to be considered for immigration to Manitoba through these and other streams.
Candidates are then ranked in the Expression of Interest pool based on their scores and a set number of the highest-ranked are issued Letters of Advice to Apply in periodic draws from the pool.
The Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream is open to eligible temporary foreign workers and international student graduates in the province who are currently working in the province. In order to be eligible for this stream, candidates must have a permanent, full-time job offer from their Manitoba employer, among other requirements.
