The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) held a draw on November 23rd and a total of 272 skilled workers were invited through it.
In this draw, workers were invited by way of Skilled Worker Overseas stream and Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream. A total of 250 candidates were invited in the Skilled Worker in Manitoba stream and the candidate with the lowest rank had scored 567 points.
Apart from this, a total of 22 skilled workers were invited by way of the Skilled Worker Overseas sub-category, particularly through the Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
The functioning of MPNP is based on the Expression of Interest (EOI) system. According to this system, an EOI is submitted by potential candidates to the province and a score is assigned to their profiles depending on the answers given by them.
In the recent draw from Manitoba, candidates from the pool who scored the highest points stand a strong chance to receive the Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA). They will be able to submit their application to the province of Manitoba.
