Latest Manitoba PNP Draw: Key Takeaways

  • Expression of Interest (EOI) candidates from the Skilled Worker Overseas stream were only considered if they were directly invited by Manitoba’s provincial government under a Strategic Recruitment initiative or, had an IRCC Express Entry ID and Job Seeker validation code.
  • Candidates whose Express Entry profile was valid at the time of application assessment - were only eligible to receive a nomination under the MPNP.
  • Candidates that have surpassed the minimum score requirement, but are yet to receive an LAA, maybe because -

- They have indicated that they have taken an authorized language proficiency test in English/French - but have not provided a valid “Test Number” or

- They have indicated that they have received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) under a Strategic Initiative - but did not provide a valid “Invitation Number”.

  • Also, candidates that have been invited to this draw were working under a regulated in-demand occupation in Manitoba and are fully licensed to work in the province.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) issues ITAs to eligible candidates on a monthly basis, with some exceptions. The frequency, size, and date of the next Manitoba PNP draw - are determined by the needs of the MPNP application inventory.
