The Canadian province of Manitoba recently invited 243 immigration candidates to apply for a nomination through the Manitoba Provincial Nomination Program (MPNP) draw.

MPNP Draw

The province periodically issues Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to hopeful immigrants for a nomination through the three MPNP streams:

  • Skilled Workers Overseas
  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba
  • International Education

The MPNP requires applicants under both the Skilled Worker streams to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile. Here are the results of the recent draw.

Manitoba Immigration Programs

The Manitoban government has various immigration pathways dedicated to attracting foreign talent to settle in the province.

While Canadian provinces and territories do not have the authority to grant permanent residence status to immigrants, they assist skilled candidates by awarding nominations.

Candidates hoping to receive a provincial nomination must first register an EOI with the MPNP. 

After this, the candidate is given 1,000 maximum points for various factors, including their connection to the province. The draws then select candidates who have a score above the set limit.

The candidates have to prove their connection to the province either by close relatives, work experience in Manitoba or by gaining an invitation through one of its Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.
