Hello everyone! We’re excited to bring you the results of the latest Expression of Interest (EOI) Draw #184 under Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). This draw focused on skilled workers in Manitoba and overseas, with a special emphasis on those working in specific occupations that have been identified as having high labour needs based on data from Statistics Canada.
For those involved in the Skilled Worker in Manitoba stream, Manitoba Immigration selected profiles that declared current employment in Manitoba. In this draw, Manitoba Immigration issued 315 Letters of Advice to Apply, with the ranking score of the lowest-ranked candidate invited being 613.
The occupations considered in this draw were:
- 60030 – Restaurant and food service managers
- 62020 – Food service supervisors
- 65201 – Food counter attendants, kitchen helpers, and related support occupations
If your profile wasn’t selected in the occupation-specific selection, don’t worry, it was considered in the “All Occupations” category. In this segment, 184 Letters of Advice to Apply were issued with the lowest-ranked candidate score being 662.
Manitoba Immigration also considered profiles in the International Education Stream and issued 62 Letters of Advice to Apply.
The Skilled Worker Overseas stream included profiles that had been directly invited by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative. In this draw, MPNP issued 26 Letters of Advice to Apply, with the lowest-ranked candidate invited having a score of 717.
Of the total 587 Letters of Advice to Apply issued in this draw, 162 were issued to candidates who declared a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code.
We’d like to remind everyone that the EOI system was upgraded between September 15 and October 6, 2022, which meant no draws were conducted during that period. MPNP has seen high interest since it resumed the EOI system on November 17, 2022, and the draw scores have been consistently higher than earlier draws.
For Skilled Worker Overseas candidates, Expressions of Interest have only been considered under specific conditions. If you haven’t received a Letter of Advice to Apply and your score is higher than the lowest-ranked candidate, there may be some discrepancies or missing information in your EOI.
Please note that the MPNP has been diligent about selecting candidates who are working in a regulated occupation and are fully licensed to work in Manitoba. However, applications might be refused if candidates are not working in a regulated occupation or fail to provide proof of having undergone all necessary licensing steps to be employed in Manitoba.
Stay tuned for more updates on future draws, and keep those EOIs coming!
