Manitoba continued its busy start to 2019 with a new Expression of Interest (EOI) draw for Skilled Workers Overseas candidates under Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) on March 14.
A total of 337 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) for a nomination for Canadian permanent residence were issued to Skilled Workers Overseas candidates in March 14 invitation round, which brought the total number of invitations issued to 1,931 through MPNP’s Skilled Workers Overseas Stream over the course of six draws this year.
Out of 337, a total of 274 invitations went to a group that included candidates with a profile in the Federal Express Entry system while the lowest ranked candidates in this group had a score of 564.
The MPNP is part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program, which allows participating Canadian provinces and territories to nominate a set number of economic immigration candidates for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws.
Another 63 invitations went to foreign skilled workers who were invited directly through an Overseas Strategic Recruitment Initiative organized by the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) in association with employers in the province. The lowest score among these candidates was 695.
