On March 9, Manitoba PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) issued 597 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAA) under three streams (including occupation-specific draw).
1. Skilled Workers In Manitoba (SWM)
In a targeted draw, 224 LAAs were sent to the profiles having a score of 612 or above.
The LAAs were targeted at profiles with current employment in Manitoba in occupations, under National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2021 major group 65 (sales and service support occupations).
Below is the list of occupations and NOC codes that fall under major group 65.
These occupations are selected based on Manitoba Labour Market Outlook 2021-2025.
Additional 277 profiles having a score of 675 were also sent the invitations under SWM stream.
2. International Education Stream (IES)
MPNP issued only 53 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAA) under International Education Stream.
3. Skilled Worker Overseas (SWO)
Skilled Worker Overseas only consider profiles that
- were contacted directly by the MPNP as part of a Strategic Recruitment Strategy; or
- have a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code.
43 LAAs were issued to applicants having a score of 666 or above under the MPNP Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
Overall, 45 invitations were issued to candidates who declared a valid Express Entry profile in their Manitoba Expression of Interest (EOI).
Haven’t Received LAA Despite Higher Score?
If your score is higher than the cut off score mentioned above and haven’t received a Letter of Advice to Apply, then it might be because:
- You’ve mentioned that you’ve taken a recognised third-party language test to prove your proficiency in English or French, but you failed to include a valid Test Number in your EOI or your language test is no longer valid.
- Furthermore, you’ve mentioned that you’ve been invited to apply to the MPNP as part of a strategic recruitment initiative, but you failed to include a valid Invitation Number.
