Manitoba held their latest Expression of Interest (EOI) draw on March 1 that sees them to issue a total of 403 invitations to the immigrants looking to apply for Manitoba Provincial Nomination Program (MPNP). This draw is the third EOI draw held between the duration of three weeks. With the 403 invitations issued, the total number of invitations issued in this year 2019 brings the total of invitations issued to 2,267 under MPNP.
Invited immigrants were registered under MPNP’s stream that includes: Skilled Worker Overseas, Skilled Worker in Manitoba or International Education Stream.
Immigrants, who are interested to apply under MPNP, first have to submit EOI profile. Candidates who are registered under the express entry program also have to submit their EOI profile. Candidate’s expression of Interest profiles are awarded points based on the factors like educational qualification, work experience, language proficiency and established the connection to Manitoba. Highest ranked profiles have then issued the Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) via these draws.
Express entry candidates were also invited under the draw held on May 1, among the group of 216 Skilled Worker Overseas. Express entry registered candidates who are able to successfully land the provincial nomination, are awarded with 600 CRS points. These many points are more than enough to land the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for a permanent residence visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
To be eligible to get the LAAs, express entry candidates are needed to have a valid Express Entry ID and job-seeker validation code and at least six months of work experience in a field of work that is categorized under Manitoba’s Occupation in-demand list.
For the other categories of invited immigrants under Skilled Worker Overseas, they need to meet the following requirements:
A minimum score of the Skilled Workers Overseas candidates who have received the LAAs under EOI draw was 565 points.
41 LAAs were also issued to the Skilled Workers Overseas immigrants via Strategic Recruitment Initiative in March 1 draw. The minimum score for immigrants under this recruitment Initiative has 621 points.
MPNP also has a stream for international graduates that provide them a pathway to them for the PR status. They must possess the skills that are required by employers in the province.
Another 126 invitations were under the Skilled Worker stream of MPNP with a low score of 566 points. This stream is for the eligible qualified temporary foreign worker and international graduates who are currently working in Manitoba and are offered a permanent job by a Manitoba employer.
