As per a report, the latest Manitoba Provincial Nominee Programme (MPNP) draw has been conducted. The draw, which occurred on September 29, 2016, saw the Canadian province of Manitoba giving 298 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) under the widely used programme.
Manitoba--situated in the nation’s central part--provides the LAAs, via two sub-classes of the Skilled Workers class of the MPNP. While a combined total of 258 LAAs were proffered to the aspirants, via the Skilled Workers in Manitoba sub-stream, 40 LAAs were provided via the Skilled Workers Overseas sub-class.
Through the MPNP's EOI Points Structure, Manitoba chooses the applicants under a ranking arrangement. In the specific draw, there was a requirement of 435 points for the Skilled Workers in Manitoba to obtain an LAA, even as Skilled Workers Overseas applicants needed 620 points.
This most recent draw for the Skilled Worker Overseas stream comprised only those aspirants who directly received invitations by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
Recruitment Missions--The said overseas employment/immigration fairs comprise the MPNP agents conducting the interviews of the overseas trained manpower only to later invite them to submit an application, post they have presented a prescribed Expression of Interest (EOI) to the MPNP.
Exploratory Visits--The MPNP can send invites to those who have embarked on a pre-approved Exploratory Visit and sailed through an interview with a programme officer.
The MPNP for Skilled Workers is based on the specific requirements of the job providers/firms in the province. Manitoba chooses skilled employees who possess the particular skills required across the local labour market, and offers them nomination to obtain a provincial nomination certificate from the MPNP. And with it, the candidate may afterwards present an application to the federal administration for the prized Permanent Resident (PR) position.
