Manitoba Invites 230 Skilled Foreign Workers And Student Graduates
In its 77th Manitoba Expression of Interest EOI draw on November 21, Manitoba issued 230 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence . This latest draw issued invitations to candidates in the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program Skilled Worker in Manitoba Category, Skilled Worker Overseas Category and International Education immigration streams.
The new invitations bring the total issued to skilled worker and International Education Stream candidates this year to 7,141.
Invitations through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas are based on an Expression of Interest system.
Each candidate creates a profile that is ranked out of a score of 1,000. Points are awarded for a candidate’s education, work experience, connections to Manitoba and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.
A set number of the highest-scoring candidates receive an LAA, allowing them to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence from Manitoba.
In the latest draw, the lowest-ranked candidate invited under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream had a score of 504. The lowest-ranked candidate invited from the Skilled Workers Overseas stream had a score of 739.
The 16 candidates invited through the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream were invited directly by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 CRS points, which effectively guarantee an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
To be considered for a provincial nomination from Manitoba, Express Entry candidates must have eligible work experience in one of Manitoba’s in-demand occupations, among other requirements.
Manitoba graduates with certain in-demand skills may be invited under the International Education Stream.
This stream includes three sub-categories:
- Career Employment Pathway
- Graduate Internship Pathway
- Student Entrepreneur Pathway
