Program Upgrades & Ongoing Demand
It’s important to note that the Expression of Interest system underwent upgrades between September 15 and October 6, 2022. During this period, no draws were conducted.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program continues to experience high demand, with the number of EOI profiles exceeding program capacity. Consequently, draw scores have been higher compared to earlier draws since the reactivation of the EOI system, which resumed on November 17, 2022.
Eligibility Criteria for Skilled Worker Overseas Candidates
For Skilled Worker Overseas candidates, participation was limited to those directly invited by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative or those with a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code. Candidates invited through these pathways must ensure that their profiles remain valid at the time of the application assessment to be eligible for nomination.
Possible Reasons for Non-Invitation
If your score surpasses that of the lowest-ranked candidate, yet you haven’t received a Letter of Advice to Apply, it could be attributed to the following reasons:
- You indicated that you have undertaken an approved third-party language test to showcase your proficiency in English or French, but either failed to provide a valid test number in your EOI or your language test has expired.
- Alternatively, you may have stated that you received an Invitation to Apply to the MPNP through a Strategic Recruitment Initiative but didn’t furnish a valid invitation number.
Please be aware that comprehensive help text is accessible for each question within the EOI, offering in-depth guidance on the required information. If either of these situations applies to your case, you might want to consider updating your EOI with accurate details to enhance your chances of being considered in the next EOI pool draw.
Considerations for Applicants
Candidates who declared their employment in a regulated occupation and possess full licensing to work in Manitoba were chosen in this draw. Nonetheless, it’s important to note that the MPNP reserves the right to either reject or decline full applications from candidates who aren’t genuinely employed in a regulated occupation or are unable to substantiate that they have completed all requisite licensing procedures for employment in Manitoba.
Candidates who receive a Letter of Advice to Apply should carefully consider their eligibility and readiness to meet program requirements before proceeding with their applications.
