Manitoba PNP invites Skilled Workers Overseas and Express Entry candidates
Manitoba held an unusual draw on April 19.
Typically, Manitoba holds three Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws at a time and only invites a handful of Express Entry candidates. The new draw did not include any Skilled Workers in Manitoba nor International Education Stream candidates.
Also, the province had different Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirements depending on whether invited candidates were invited through strategic recruitment initiatives, or if they already had an Express Entry profile.
Here are the results of the new MPNP draw:
30 candidates invited under a strategic recruitment initiative with an EOI score of at least 703; and
369 candidates invited under a strategic recruitment initiative with an EOI score of at least 708.
Express Entry candidates will only be eligible to receive the provincial nomination if their profile is still valid when the MPNP assesses their application. All invited candidates have 60 days from when they receive their Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) to apply for the provincial nomination.
