Note. EOI: Expression of Interest.
An Expression of Interest is the first step for skilled workers interested in taking up permanent residence in Manitoba through the MPNP.
Anyone interested in immigrating through the MPNP as either a Skilled Worker Overseas or Skilled Worker in Manitoba will be asked few questions regarding themselves. Those submitting an EOI are placed in a pool of candidates.
A score, the ‘EOI score’ is allotted following an assessment on certain factors that determine the potential of that candidate thriving in Manitoba.
Manitoba is among the Canadian provinces and territories that are a part of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), commonly referred to as Canadian PNP.
Invitations by Manitoba are officially known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs).
Acquiring Canada PR through the PNP is a 2-step process. Those successful in securing a nomination – through any of the Express Entry-linked PNP streams – are automatically allotted 600 CRS points. These ‘additional’ CRS points, as per the Comprehensive Ranking System, guarantee an invitation to apply for that candidate.
Applying for permanent residence through the federal Express Entry system is invitation-only. While a profile can be created in the Express Entry system, an application cannot be submitted until specifically invited to do the same by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
It is the highest-ranked, as per the CRS scores, that are invited by IRCC in the federal draws held from time to time.
|Those issued an LAA by the MPNP will have 60 days – from the date of their LAA – to submit a complete application.|
An individual that receives an LAA will be able to log into their account and gain access to the full MPNP application.
Applying through the MPNP’s Skilled Workers Overseas pathway is a 3- step process –
STEP 1: Submission of an Expression of Interest to the MPNP.
STEP 2: The highest-scoring qualified candidates, with a connection to Manitoba, are invited.
STEP 3: After an assessment, the MPNP nominates successful candidates. The Nomination Certificate can then be used for making Canada PR application to the Government of Canada.
With the latest round of invitations, the MPNP has issued a total of 8,926 LAAs in the 23 MPNP draws held in 2021 so far.
For 2021, Manitoba has an annual allocation of 5,450 base nomination spaces and 875 Express Entry spaces.
