Manitoba issues 473 invitations to apply for provincial nomination
The province of Manitoba has issued new invitations to apply for a provincial nomination to 473 candidates in its Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
This latest draw from Manitoba’s Expression of Interest pool took place on February 26.
The breakdown of the draw was as follows:
The MPNP conducts draws based on an Expression of Interest (EOI) system wherein potential candidates submit an EOI to the province and their profiles are assigned a score based on the answers provided.
The highest scoring candidates from the EOI pool receive a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) to submit an application for a provincial nomination from the Government of Manitoba.
Skilled Worker in Manitoba:
- Number of Letters of Advice to Apply issued: 283
- Ranking score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 489
- In the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream, the Letters of Advice to Apply were split between two categories of candidates:
- A total of 36 invitations were issued directly by the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative. The lowest ranked candidate invited had a score of 695.
Another 154 Letters of Advice to Apply were issued to candidates who have:
- A close relative residing in Manitoba or past education or work experience in Manitoba;
- At least 6 months of recent experience in an occupation on Manitoba’s in-demand occupations list; and
- A minimum language proficiency of CLB/NCLC 5 unless work experience is primarily in a regulated occupation (minimum CLB/NCLC 7) or a compulsory trade (CLB/NCLC 6).
The lowest-ranked candidate invited in this group had a score of 599.
Both skilled workers in Manitoba and overseas candidates who received an LAA in the latest draw, and whose application for a provincial nomination is approved, may then apply to the federal government for Canadian permanent resident status.
