During the Manitoba PNP Draw #185, the province issued LAAs to candidates under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba, International Education Stream, and Skilled Worker Overseas streams. To be eligible for this invitation round, candidates were required to meet the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores, ranging from 604 to 774.

Occupation-specific selection profiles declaring current employment in Manitoba, particularly in occupations identified with high labor needs, were considered for Skilled Workers in Manitoba. The draw issued a total of 205 LAAs, with the lowest-ranked candidate having a CRS score of 604. The occupations encompassed various categories, including health occupations, specialized middle management occupations in administrative services, financial and business services, communication (except broadcasting), administrative and financial support, supply chain logistics occupations, and helpers and laborers, along with other transport drivers, operators, and laborers.

For profiles that did not meet the occupation-specific selection criteria, a further selection was conducted, resulting in the issuance of 237 LAAs. The lowest-ranked candidate invited in this category had a CRS score of 661. All occupations and profiles that were not selected in the occupation-specific selection were considered for this group.

Under the International Education Stream, 57 LAAs were issued to profiles that declared meeting the eligibility requirements. This stream is designed for international students who have completed their studies in Manitoba and wish to settle in the province.

The Skilled Worker Overseas stream issued 41 LAAs to profiles that declared being directly invited by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative. The lowest-ranked candidate invited in this category had a CRS score of 774.

It is worth noting that out of the 540 LAAs issued in this draw, 77 were issued to candidates who declared a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code.

Understanding the Manitoba PNP EOI Draw System

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) draws are an integral part of the immigration process for individuals interested in settling in Manitoba, Canada. The program aims to address the specific labor market and economic needs of the province by nominating qualified individuals for permanent residency.

The draws operate through a points-based system called the Expression of Interest (EOI) system. Aspiring immigrants must first submit an EOI profile, providing details about their personal information, education, work experience, language proficiency, and other relevant factors. Based on the information provided, each candidate receives a score.

Periodically, the MPNP conducts draws from the pool of EOIs and invites candidates with the highest scores to apply for provincial nomination. The selection of candidates is typically based on the specific needs and priorities of the province. Once an individual receives an invitation to apply (ITA), they can proceed with their application for provincial nomination.

It is important to note that the specific requirements and scoring criteria may change over time, adapting to the evolving needs of the province. Candidates with higher scores and those possessing skills or work experience in professions listed on the Manitoba In-demand Occupation List generally have a greater chance of receiving an invitation to apply for permanent residency in Canada through the MPNP.


The Manitoba PNP Draw #185 held on July 13, 2023, witnessed the issuance of 540 LAAs to eligible candidates across the Skilled Workers in Manitoba, International Education Stream, and Skilled Worker Overseas streams. The draws are conducted using the Expression of Interest (EOI) system, where candidates are assigned scores based on their profile information. Prospective immigrants with higher scores and relevant skills or work experience stand a better chance of receiving an invitation to apply for provincial nomination. By continually adapting to the labor market and economic needs of the province, the MPNP plays a vital role in facilitating the immigration process for skilled individuals seeking permanent residency in Manitoba.
