The Canadian province of Manitoba held its third Expression of Interest (EOI) draw in less than three weeks on March 1. A total of 403 immigration candidates received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in this draw, which brought the number of invitations issued so far this year by the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) to 2,267.
The invited immigration candidates had an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile registered with the MPNP under one of its immigration streams – Skilled Worker Overseas, Skilled Worker in Manitoba or International Education stream.
Express Entry candidates were among a group of 216 Skilled Workers Overseas candidates who received LAAs in this invitation round while the lowest-ranked candidate among this group had an EOI score of 565.
An additional 41 invitations went to Skilled Worker Overseas candidates with scores as low as 621 through a Strategic Recruitment Initiative, which can include overseas recruitment missions conducted by the MPNP.

The MPNP also issued 126 invitations to candidates under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream- a stream designed for eligible qualified temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who are currently working in Manitoba and have been offered a permanent job with their Manitoba employer.
The lowest-ranked candidate invited in the March 1 draw among this group had an EOI score of 566.
Apart from it, another 20 invitations issued to International Education Stream candidates. This stream offers faster pathways to permanent residence for international graduates of Manitoba post-secondary institutions with requisite skills.
