Manitoba Invites Foreign Workers And Student Graduates To Apply For MPNP
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program has issued 7,362 invitations so far in 2019. Manitoba has invited 221 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
The MPNP in its recernt draw had invited candidates in the Skilled Worker in Manitoba, Skilled Worker Overseas categories and the International Education Stream. Out of the 221 candidates invited, 18 had a profile in the Express Entry pool. 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.
An EOI is an online 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. The lowest-ranked candidate invited from the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream had a score of 718.
The MPNP’s Skilled Worker Overseas Category allows the MPNP to select and nominate skilled foreign workers who can help support Manitoba’s labour market. Candidates invited through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Category must be working in Manitoba and have a full-time, permanent job offer from their employer, among other criteria.
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, and the Student Entrepreneur Pathway.
