Speaking of the Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream, it is open to candidates who either are temporary foreign workers or International student graduates and are presently working in Manitoba and are offered with a permanent, full-time job with their Manitoba employer. The other stream of Manitoba province is the Skilled Workers Overseas Stream, which allows the MPNP to select applicants outside Canada having an established connection to Manitoba such as support of family members or friends, previous education or work experience in the province, or an invitation under one of the MPNP’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.

60 Applicants, who received LAA, got a direct invitation through a Strategic Recruitment Initiative on June 7. Under the International Education Stream, eligible International graduates of Manitoba post-secondary institutions are given with three pathways to attain permanent residency. You have to submit an expression of interest (EOI) to the MPNP to be eligible for a provincial nomination from Manitoba. Candidates get a score and based on the answers they’ve provided in their EOI their rank is determined in the pool of candidates. LAAS is issued to candidates with high scores through regular draws that take place at least once a month.

As per the MPNP, 18 invitations out of 209 were issued to candidates in the Federal Express Entry system that manages the pool of three-economic-class immigration categories- the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class. Express Entry candidates are required to submit a separate Expression of Interest with the MPNP and need to have a job seeker validation code and experience in an occupation that is in demand in Manitoba, among all the other requirements. They are offered with an additional 600 points in their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and escalate their chances to receive an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canada permanent residence.
