National Occupational Classification 2021
For the necessary changes, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program will conduct the final Expression of Interest Draw using NOC 2016 on September 15, 2022. The MPNP will announce when the Expression of Interest profile may be created using NOC 2021 following the Expression of Interest Draw on September 15, 2022.
Your application and nomination cannot be switched to NOC 2021. If your MPNP application has been made with NOC 2016, your MPNP nomination and subsequent permanent residence application will be assessed using NOC 2016.
What is an Expression of Interest?
The short form of Expression of Interest is EOI which is your first step to immigration to Manitoba as a Provincial Nominee. An EOI is NOT an application, but an indication of your interest in being considered to apply.
Who can submit an EOI?
Every candidate who meets program eligibility for one of the MPNP’s application streams. Do not submit an Expression of Interest profile unless all eligibility criteria are met.
Who is included in your application?
- Spouse: (husband, wife, partner), legal marriage or documented common-law relationship
- Children: aged 18 and under (not married or in a common-law relationship)
- Adult children: who are 19 years of age or older (dependent due to physical or mental condition)
