The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited skilled workers and international graduates through three immigration streams and issued LAAs – Letters of Advice to Apply, along with the minimum required EOI – Expression of Interest score:
Of the 196 LAAs issued, 40 went to Express Entry applicants. That’s a huge jump from the seven that were issued in the previous draw. Candidates who do not have a job seeker validation code, verifiable experience in an occupation on Manitoba’s In-Demand Occupation List, and a valid Express Entry ID, will not be considered by MPNP for the provincial nomination.
Manitoba PNP’s candidates under Skilled workers overseas were considered in this provincial draw if they were directly invited as part of a strategic recruitment initiative.
If applicants scored higher than the minimum required score but did not receive an LAA, it could be because of the following reasons:
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.
All the candidates who exercise regulated occupations have been invited in the latest provincial draw. 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. Candidates under these situations can refuse their invitation.
The latest round of invitation held on November 19, brings the total number of LAAs issued so far this year to 4,469.
MPNP’s Express Entry Stream
All the skilled immigrants who have applied for a Canada PR Visa through the federal government’s Express Entry program are ranked based on a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score that takes into account factors such as age, work experience, education, and language skills.
Top-ranked profiles in the express entry pool are then invited to apply for a PR Visa through regular draws.
Express Entry candidates who get a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 CRS points and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
Manitoba’s EOI System and basics on MPNP
Immigrants who want to move to Canada under the Manitoba PNP must register an EOI with the MPNP to receive an LAA through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas streams.
All the EOI profiles are awarded points based on the MPNP point assessment grid. These points are awarded out of 1,000 points for factors such as their language proficiency, work experience, education, relationship with the province, and other factors.
The Manitoba Skilled Worker Stream and Skilled Worker Overseas Class allow the province to nominate skilled workers who can meet the needs of the Manitoba labor market.
Immigrants must have a “strong” connection with Manitoba which can be shown by previous experience in the province, close family ties or friends in the province, or an invitation to one of MPNP’s strategic recruitment initiatives.
Candidates in the MPNP’s 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 the province of Manitoba may receive an LAA under the International Education stream if they have in-demand skills.
