In the latest MPNP draw for skilled workers, 250 candidates were issued a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) under the criteria for the Skilled Workers in Manitoba sub-category and 63 LAAs were issued to candidates in the Skilled Workers Overseas sub-category who were invited directly by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
The MPNP for Skilled Workers was helping the government of Manitoba selects qualified workers to balance their existing workforce who have made an Expression of Interest in immigrating to the province and who have the skills needed through the local labour market, and submit them to receive a provincial nomination certificate from the MPNP. With this, the nominated person may then apply to the federal government for permanent resident status.
These immigration opportunities may be particularly attractive to individuals who may not be eligible to immigrate to Canada through the federal Express Entry immigration selection system, as the eligibility requirements are different.
