New Provincial Draw in Manitoba
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is one of the most active PNPs in Canada. It is known to pick the best possible candidates who can help satisfy the labor needs of Manitoba.
Details of the draw
On November 5, the province organized a draw to extend invitations to skilled workers and international graduates. The Letters of Advice to Apply or LAAs were mainly given to candidates in the following streams:
- Skilled Workers in Manitoba
- Skilled Worker Overseas
- International Education Stream
The applicants in the Skilled Workers in Manitoba got 166 LAAs and their minimum score requirement was 461. On the other hand, things were a little tougher for candidates in the Skilled Workers Overseas category as their score requirement was 708 and they received 16 LAAs in total. For people in the International Education Stream, there were no particular score requirements and they got 23 LAAs distributed amongst them.
Altogether, 205 LAAs were distributed during the draw. This brings the sum total of invitations issued by Manitoba so far in 2020 to 4,273.
What you should know about Manitoba PNPs
Prospective candidates who are looking to get invited through Manitoba’s PNP should make it a point to register an Expression of Interest so that the MPNP is aware that you want an invitation. The system ranks all applicants out of 1000 points based on their language proficiency, job experience, education history and connections to the province. If you are convinced that you have what it takes to be a part of the Manitoba labor market, do not delay.
For the November 5 draw, MPNP has said that if any of the chosen candidates are unable to provide a job seeker validation code or an Express Entry ID or they cannot prove that they worked in one of the occupations listed in Manitoba’s list, they will be rejected.
