The province of Manitoba has been regularly holding draws in 2021 to invite larger batches of skilled candidates who will be able to settle down in the province. The latest draw took place on July 9 when Manitoba invited a group of eligible candidates who will be able to apply for a provincial nomination.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) scours the Express Entry candidate pool in search of candidates who will be able to fill the labor deficiencies in the provincial market. Invitations are issued to eligible candidates so they can apply for a provincial nomination. The recipients of the nomination get an advantage because they receive 600 extra CRS points, and their application for permanent residence in Canada is also supported by the province.
Details of the draw
On July 9, 201 candidates received invitations to apply via the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream and the required Expression of Interest (EOI) score was 445. Candidates from the Skilled Workers Overseas stream managed to secure 53 invitations, and their minimum EOI score was 703. A total of 23 invitations were distributed via the International Education Stream, and there was no EOI score requirement.
Express Entry candidates received 48 invitations in total. Once you submit your Express Entry profile, the province will be able to rank you based on human capital factors like education, language abilities, occupational experience and even age. The candidates with the highest scores usually receive invitations.
If you are looking to secure a nomination from Manitoba, you can register via the MPNP.
