Manitoba Holds Second PNP Draw In 2 Weeks
4,469 invitations to immigration candidates have been issued by Manitoba
On November 19, Manitoba invited 196 candidates for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program invites International Graduates and Skilled Workers from three streams-
- Skilled workers in Manitoba
- Skilled workers oversee
- International educational stream
The EOI- Expression of Interest is the score requirements that candidates have to qualify to receive the invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs).
- Skilled workers in Manitoba –144 LAAs with a minimum score of 526;
- Skilled workers oversee – 22 LAAs with a minimum score of 769 ;
- International educational stream – 30 LAAs with no EOI score requirement
40 LAAs went to Express Entry candidates out of 196. The MPNP stated that they will refuse candidates who do not have a valid Express Entry profile, job seeker validation code, and work experience in one of the occupations of the in-demand Occupation list.
The MPBO also considers inviting candidates of Skilled Worker if they are directly invited under the strategic recruitment initiative.
If by chance candidates have scored a higher rank but did not receive a LAAs, it could be due to the following reasons-
- Language province test is no longer valid
- The applicant is invited for a strategic recruitment initiative but did not receive a valid invitation number
- The third-party language test did not have a valid test number
Candidates can update their Expression of Interest- EOI profiles with correct information to be considered for the next draw.
Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program has invited candidates who have regulated occupation for the draw. But, they may refuse those candidates who are not working in the regulated occupation or may not provide proof of registered steps for employment in Manitoba.
The total of LAAs issued this year is 4,469 including the November 19, one.
