On March 11, Manitoba organized a new draw to invite skilled eligible workers to the province. The 299 candidates who received invitations during this draw will now have the chance to apply for a provincial nomination.
If they are successful in getting the nomination, they will be one step closer to becoming a permanent resident in Canada.
Details of the draw
With this March 11 draw, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program or MPNP has completed the fifth draw of the year. International graduates and skilled workers reviewed Letters of Advice to Apply or LAAs via the Skilled Workers in Manitoba, International Education Stream and Skilled Worker Overseas streams. Express Entry candidates received a total of 35 LAAs.
The candidates from the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream received 261 invitations and they required a minimum Expression of Interest or EOI score of 459.
On the other hand, the International Education Stream candidates needed a minimum EOI score of 728 and they got 3 invitations. The Skilled Workers Overseas candidates received 35 invitations.
Interested candidates who want to have a shot at getting a provincial nomination from Manitoba will have to register their own Expression of Interest with the PNP. Manitoba usually assigns ranks to the candidates out of 1000 on the basis of certain human capital factors and their connections to the province.
The people who manage to get the highest score usually receive invitations during the next draw. Candidates who have existing connections to the province usually have an advantage over the candidates who do not.
