the CanadaVisa Team - 17 September, 2018
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program issued 432 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in an Expression Of Interest in a draw held on September 14, 2018.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (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-ranked candidate invited through this stream had a score of 721 under the MPNP's unique points grid.
An additional 150 invitations were issued to candidates under the MPNP's Skilled Worker Overseas Stream. The lowest-ranked candidate invited through this stream had a score of 604.
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 in-demand occupation.
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.
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).
Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the MPNP is the first step toward becoming a permanent resident in Manitoba. Learn more about Manitoba's Skilled Worker Immigration streams.
