Latest Manitoba’ Skilled Worker Overseas Draw Sees 338 Invitations Issued for Express Entry Candidates

Latest Manitoba’ Skilled Worker Overseas Draw Sees 338 Invitations

On February 21, Manitoba holds their second draw for their Skilled Worker Overseas stream under the space of six days. The latest draw sees the total number of invitations issued to be 338 invitations.

There is the unspecified number of candidates who have applied via the federal government’s express entry program issued invitations by the Manitoba’s Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) in the latest draw which brings the total number of invitations issued this year to 1,864.

Express entry is a point-based program that manages the profiles of the candidates who have applied under the three skilled economic programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). On successfully landing a provincial nomination, express entry candidates are awarded 600 CRS points. These many points are more than enough to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for permanent residence visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

For express entry’s candidates to be eligible for Manitoba’s provincial nomination program (MPNP), they have to register via the “Expression of Interest” (EOI) system and then the profile of the candidates will be given a score based on the Manitoba’s point assessment grid. The lowest score of the express entry candidate who was issued the invitation is 566 points and the other requirements to be met are as follows:

  • A valid express entry ID and job-seeker validation code.
  • At least six months of recent experience in a profession on the province’s In-Demand Occupations List.

Other invitations were also issued to the candidates who have applied under the Skilled Worker Overseas stream under the MPNP. The requirements for the candidates were are as follows:

  • A close relative in Manitoba or past education or work experience in the province.
  • At least six months of recent work experience in a profession on Manitoba’s In-Demand Occupations List.
  • A minimum language proficiency in English or French language of CLB level 5 unless the work experience is primarily in a regulated occupation, in which case the requirement is a minimum of CLB level 7, or a compulsory trade, in which case the minimum the CLB level is 6.
