Manitoba conducted a new Expression of Interest (EOI) draw on September 15th – issuing 436 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to candidates under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).
The September 15 EOI draw saw LAAs being issued to candidates under three MPNP streams:
Out of the total 278 Letters of Advice issued in the latest Manitoba draw – 150 LAAs were issued to candidates showcasing a valid Express Entry ID and Job Seeker validation code.
Here are the key takeaways from the latest Manitoba draw:
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.
Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) is your first step to immigration to Manitoba through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).
Once you have successfully created an EOI profile, you will be entered into a pool – alongside other eligible candidates. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) ranks your profile based on certain factors including Age, Education, Work Experience, Language Proficiency, Adaptability, and Spousal Sponsorship.
The MPNP will regularly draw (usually on a bi-weekly basis, with some exceptions) – where the highest-scoring candidates are invited to submit a full application to the MPNP.
The MPNP uses an electronic system and will communicate with you by email. If invited, you can use the same login information created for EOI submission.
There are no limits on the number of candidates who can submit an EOI.
The size, frequency, and minimum score requirement of the next Manitoba EOI draws are determined by the need for Manitoba’s application inventory. Draws are usually conducted on a bi-weekly basis (with some exceptions) – and the dates of such EOI draws are not released beforehand.
Don't wait. The time will never be just right.
