The first step for candidates to obtain provincial nomination from Manitoba is to submit an EoI to the MPNP. In the Expression of Interest, the candidate has to provide information with regard to a number of factors such as education qualification, work experience and language proficiency. After this, each candidate profile is awarded a score based on the above factors. The highest scoring candidates are invited to apply for provincial nomination in the draws that are conducted regularly.
