The lowest-ranked candidate invited from the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream had a score of 708.

The MPNP’s Skilled Workers Overseas category allows the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program Draw to select skilled foreign workers to Manitoba. The 42 candidates invited through Skilled Worker Overseas Stream were invited directly by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
EXPRESS ENTRY PROFILE
Of the 186 LAA’s issued in Manitoba’s latest draw, 24 went to candidates who had a profile in the Express Entry Pool. The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main Economic-Class immigration categories:
The Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Trade Skilled Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
The Express Entry candidates are ranked based on a general CRS that is generated based on four core major factors such as age, work experience, education, and language proficiency.
Then the top-ranking candidates are invited to apply for the Canadian permanent residence through regular draws from the Express Entry Pool.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System points, which effectively guarantee an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
To be considered for a provincial nomination from Manitoba, Express Entry candidates must have eligible work experience in one of Manitoba’s in-demand occupations, among other requirements.
They must also create and submit a separate Expression of Interest to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, which shows their intent to work and live in the province after considering their capacity of meeting the province’s stipulated requirements.
The Expression of Interest is in form of an online profile that is graded out of a score of 1000 Points after having examined the candidate’s abilities in the four core major factors listed above which are – education, work experience, connections to Manitoba and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.
Such candidates receive a Letter of Advice to Apply also known as a Letter of Advice to Apply, which allows them to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian Permanent residence from Manitoba.
Candidates must have an established connection to Manitoba such as close family or friends, previous education or work experience in the province, or an invitation through one of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives, among other requirements. They do not need to be in Manitoba at the time of application in order to qualify.
Candidates invited through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba category must be working in Manitoba and have a full-time, permanent job offer from their employer, among other criteria.
