Candidates who are older than 49 can’t be invited. It’s important to have at least 1 year of work experience to get selected. A trade certificate is needed to get selected, otherwise, the maximum level of education is a master’s degree or a doctor’s degree. So, candidates who were selected for these categories had to score on the points grid of the Manitoba provincial nominee program.

A candidate gets a maximum of 1000 points on the Manitoba provincial nominee program grid. He can, however, lose points if he has a connection to a province other than Manitoba.
