Manitoba’s EOI system

Immigration candidates need to register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the MPNP in order to receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas categories.

Under Manitoba’s system, such candidates are ranked out of 1,000 points for human capital characteristics such as their English or French language skills, education, work experience, Manitoba connections, and other factors.

In today’s draw, successful candidates needed a score of at least 504 points to obtain an LAA under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream.

Skilled Workers Overseas candidates needed a minimum score of 686 points.

About the Streams

The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories allow the province to nominate skilled workers who can support Manitoba’s labour market needs.

Those overseas need to have an established connection to Manitoba. This can be demonstrated through close family ties or friends in Manitoba, previous experience in the province, or an invitation under one of the MPNP’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.

They do not need to be physically present in Manitoba at the time of the application to be eligible.

Successful candidates in the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category must meet certain criteria, such as having a full-time permanent job offer from an employer in Manitoba.

Finally, international students that graduated from an educational institution in Manitoba may receive an LAA under the International Education Stream if they have in-demand skills.
