Once again, Manitoba has held a record-breaking draw, issuing 1140 invitations to skilled workers with scores as low as 557. This is the highest number of invitations Manitoba has ever issued in a single draw since the first round of invitations in May 2015. Their June 28th Express Entry draw had previously held this title.
In the July 27th draw, Manitoba issued invitations to candidates under their Skilled Worker Overseas stream, an immigration stream of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).
MPNP Skilled Worker Overseas Draw #122 Results:
Number of Invitations issued: 1140
Score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 557
All candidates invited in today’s draw had an Express Entry profile.
How can I be eligible for an MPNP draw?
To submit a profile under the Skilled Worker Overseas program, candidates must have an eligible connection to Manitoba. An eligible connection may be a close friend, relative, or previous school or work experience in the province. Once a candidate has submitted a Expression of Interest, Manitoba will rank the profile using their unique points grid.
The points system ranks candidates on language, proficiency, age, work experience, and education. These factors are often referred to as “human capital factors”. Manitoba also allocates points for adaptability; adaptability may refer to a candidate’s connection to the province, invitation under a recruitment initiative, or intention to settle outside of Winnipeg. MPNP may also deduct “Risk Assessment” points if an applicant has a strong connection to another province.
The maximum points a candidate can claim for the human capital factors is 500. If a candidate claimed at least 457 points toward these factors and an additional adaptability 100 points, they would have been eligible to receive an invitation in this draw. An additional 100 points could be claimed from a combination of having a close friend in the province, and the intention to reside outside of Winnipeg.
