manitoba pnp immigration canada

Manitoba has now issued 4,273 invitations to PNP candidates so far this year.

Manitoba issued 205 invitations to immigration candidates on November 5.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited skilled workers and international graduates through three immigration streams:

The invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), were distributed as follows along with their Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirement:

  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba— 166 LAAs with a score of at least 461;
  • Skilled Workers Overseas— 16 LAAs with a score of at least 708; and
  • International Education Stream— 23 LAAs, no EOI score requirement.

Out of the 205 LAAs issued, seven went to Express Entry candidates. The MPNP says they will refuse any of these candidates who do not have a valid Express Entry ID, a job seeker validation code, and verifiable experience in an occupation on Manitoba’s In-demand Occupations list.

The MPNP only considered Skilled Worker Overseas candidates in this draw if they were directly invited under a strategic recruitment initiative.
