Manitoba holds biggest Skilled Worker in MB draw so far this year

367 candidates were invited in the New draw thereby totalling the till date invites to,2636 PNP candidates to apply for a provincial nomination in 2021.

The province invited candidates through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). Most of the invited candidates may be eligible for the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream. These are temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who have job offers in skilled occupations in the province.

Candidates were also invited through two other Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams International Education Stream and Skilled Workers Overseas.

The skilled worker streams have points cutoff scores because they require candidates to have an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile. Here are the draw results from Manitoba’s draw on April 27:
• Skilled Workers in Manitoba— 301 invitations with a minimum EOI score of 440;
• Skilled Workers Overseas— 11 invitations with a minimum EOI score of 721; and
• International Education Stream— 55 invitations with no EOI score requirement.

A total of 34 invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), went to Express Entry candidates.

The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba streams are designed to allow the province to identify candidates who meet its labour market needs.

Candidates overseas need to demonstrate connections to Manitoba through close family ties, previous experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. You do not need to be living in Manitoba at the time of your application to be eligible.

In order to receive an invitation under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category, you need to have a full-time job offer from a local employer.

International graduates who complete education in Manitoba can receive an LAA under the International Education Stream if they can demonstrate to the province that they have in-demand skills.
