18 of the 174 invited candidates had profiles in the federal Express Entry system. Manitoba issued LAAs to 2,634 applicants in 2020.
Basics on MPNP EOI System
Immigrant applicants must register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the MPNP to receive an LAA in the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas categories.
In the Manitoba system, these applicants are ranked out of 1,000 points for human capital characteristics such as their English or French language skills, education, work experience, relationship with Manitoba, and other factors.
In today’s draw, successful applicants needed a score of at least 430 points to earn an LAA in the Manitoba Skilled Worker stream. Qualified applicants abroad had to achieve a minimum score of 811 points.
MPNP different Immigration Streams
The Skilled Worker Overseas and Skilled Worker in Manitoba categories allow the province to appoint skilled workers who can meet the needs of the Manitoba labor market.
These people abroad must have an established connection with Manitoba. This can be evidenced by close family ties or friends in Manitoba, previous experience in the province, or an invitation to an MPNP’s Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
They do not need to be physically present in Manitoba at the time of application to be eligible.
Successful applicants in the Manitoba Skilled Worker category must meet certain criteria, such as having a permanent full-time job offer from an employer in Manitoba.
Finally, international students who have graduated from an educational institution in Manitoba can receive an LAA under the International Education stream if they have skills in demand.
