Renewed Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) Conducted First Draw of 2018 Under The Express Entry Pathway

On January 11, 2018, The MPNP has issued 155 letters of invitation to apply under the new Express Entry Pathway.This is the first draw of the year under this pathway after the new guidelines were released last November.

Applicants who were eligible under the Express Entry Pathway scored a minimum a 565 points.

The Express Entry pathway requirements are as follows:

  • To have a valid profile in both Manitoba’s Expression of Interest pool and Federal Express Entry pool;
  • To have accumulated at least 6 months of work experience in the new Manitoba In-Demand Occupation list;
  • To have the confirmed support of a close friend or relative who has been a resident of Manitoba for at least one year. For more information on eligibility requirements please contact our office at

The Express Entry pathway will allow the Province of Manitoba to invite federal Express Entry candidates to apply for what’s known as an enhanced provincial nomination. Such a nomination provides an additional 600 points towards an Express Entry’s comprehensive ranking system, which is usually sufficient to trigger an Invitation to Apply in a subsequent round.

Also on January 11, the MPNP issued 119 invitations to apply under the Skilled Worker Manitoba Stream with the lowest ranking score of 520, and 17 invitations to apply under the Skilled Worker Overseas with the lowest score of 815.
