In its last provincial draw of the year, Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program [MPNP] has invited 188 Canadian immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence in Canada through the MPNP.
Manitoba, one of the 9 provinces that are a part of the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] of Canada, held its Expression of Interest [EOI] Draw #105 on December 30, 2020. Invitations in the latest MPNP draw were issued to skilled workers, both within the province as well as abroad, and international students.
|[A] Skilled Worker Stream
Foreign workers with skills in demand in the local labour market selected and nominated for Canada PR.
While for the Skilled Worker in Manitoba pathway “an ongoing employment” is required, the Skilled Workers Overseas immigration pathway has a criterion of an established connection to Manitoba.
|[B] International Education Stream [IES]
For international students that have graduated in Manitoba, provided they meet the local labour market requirements.
|[C] Business Investor Stream
For qualified business investors and entrepreneurs from across the world that have the intention and ability of starting/purchasing a business in Manitoba.
Registration of an Expression of Interest [EOI] profile with the MPNP is the first step for a skilled worker that intends taking the MPNP Skilled Worker Stream route to Canada PR.
An EOI score, out of a maximum 1,000 points, is allotted to a candidate based on factors such as their work experience, connection to Manitoba etc.
The EOI score is the determining factor as to which of the profiles receive an invitation in the MPNP draws that are held.
