Manitoba Demand Occupation List 2019

When it comes to Canada’s immigration, a large number of immigrants wish to immigrate to the Canadian province, Manitoba. The name Manitoba is believed to derive from “manitowapow” (Cree) or “manito bau” (Ojibway), which mean “straight of the spirit”. It is known across the world for its multiple job opportunities, pleasant weather, broad cultural acceptance and a healthy lifestyle.

It operates the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) as one of the flexible and fastest Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) to ease the entry of immigrants as Canadian Permanent Residents (PRs). However, these immigrants must-have skills and experience to be able to work in the province’s labour market.

In the recent Manitoba’s draw, the Governing Manitoba immigration body issued 173 invitations or Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to candidates of Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas and International Education streams. In the draw, 29 invitations went to candidates of Express Entry Program which help them to get an additional of 600 points towards their express entry CRS score.

These draws follow the minimum eligibility criteria to accept applications for Manitoba immigration including age, education, work experience, language proficiency and more. Manitoba’s draws generally target skilled workers having work experience in any job enlisted in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) among other criteria.
