The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited skilled workers and international graduates through three immigration streams. The invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAA), were distributed as follows along with their Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirement:
Of the 205 AALs issued, seven went to Express Entry applicants. The MPNP says it will refuse any candidate who does not have a valid Express Entry ID, a job seeker validation code, and verifiable experience in an occupation on Manitoba’s In-Demand Occupation List.
The MPNP only considered skilled overseas workers in this draw if they were directly invited as part of a strategic recruiting initiative.
If applicants scored higher than the minimum ranking but did not receive an LAA, it could be because:
The MPNP has stated that applicants who are in any of these scenarios can update their EOI profile with the correct information to be considered for the next draw.
Candidates who are in a regulated occupation have been invited in this round of invitations. The MPNP says it can refuse applicants who do not work in a regulated profession, or who do not provide proof of having taken all the steps to obtain a license to be employed in Manitoba. Those who find themselves in this situation have the option of refusing their LAA.
The November 5 draw brings the total number of LAAs issued so far this year to 4,273.
Manitoba PNP’s “enhanced” stream – Express entry
Candidates eligible for Express Entry are ranked based on a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score that takes into account human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and language skills.
Top-rated applicants are invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada through regular draws in the Express Entry pool.
Those who receive a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 CRS points and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Basics on Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
Individuals wishing to immigrate under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) must register an expression of interest with the MPNP to receive an LAA through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas streams.
In the Manitoba system, these applicants are ranked out of 1,000 points for human capital characteristics such as English or French language skills, education, work experience, relationship with Manitoba, and other factors.
The Skilled Worker Overseas Class and the Manitoba Skilled Worker Streams allow the province to nominate skilled workers who can meet the needs of the Manitoba labor market.
Applicants abroad must have an established connection with Manitoba. This “strong connection” can be shown by close family ties or friends in the province, previous experience in Manitoba, or an invitation to one of MPNP’s strategic recruitment initiatives.
Candidates are not required to be physically present in Manitoba at the time of application to be eligible.
Successful candidates in the Manitoba Skilled Worker category must meet certain criteria, such as having a permanent full-time job offer from a Manitoba employer.
International students who have graduated from an educational institution in Manitoba may receive an LAA under the International Education stream if they have in-demand skills.
