The first Manitoba PNP draw of March, conducted on 8th March, issued a total of 104 invitations to candidates seeking permanent residency. This draw invited candidates from only one category, detailed below:


Name of category Invitations issued MPNP Cutoff Score
Skilled Worker Overseas Stream 104 614

 Candidates were issued a Letter of Advice to Apply under the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream if they indicated having a Manitoba Supporter who is a close relative, is a Canadian permanent resident or citizen, is an established resident of Manitoba and has been residing in Manitoba for at least one year. Close relatives may support the application of more than one skilled worker at a time provided they satisfactorily demonstrate their ability to do so.

To be eligible to apply, candidates selected in this draw must be able to provide documents proving their close relative relationship to their Manitoba Supporter and their Manitoba Supporter’s duration of residence in the province.

The candidates who applied to the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream were evaluated based on either of these two conditions:

  • Possession of a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code
  • Direct invitation by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative

Despite having a higher score, candidates who did not receive a Letter of Advice to Apply were encouraged to review and update their EOI with accurate information for consideration in the next draw from the EOI pool. Some possible reasons for not receiving an invitation could be:

  • Failing to furnish a valid Invitation Number for those declaring an Invitation to Apply under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
  • Providing an invalid language test number

The provincial government of Manitoba has emphasised the importance of providing accurate information for candidates working in regulated occupations, as the MPNP may reject applications from those not actively working in a regulated occupation or those who fail to provide proof of completing necessary licensing steps for employment in the province.
