The province extended 133 invitations to candidates in the Skilled Worker Stream to apply, and 545, was the score of the lowest ranked candidate. 45 invitations were given to workers in the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream.

The Provincial Government had announced several changes to the MPNP in November and a few of them were implemented immediately. Some changes are likely to be implemented in 2018.

A change that took effect immediately in November related to the introduction of a demand occupations list, which permits the Program to prioritize workers who satisfy the needs of the labour market of the province. The December 29th draw for skilled workers saw the Minimum score of 545 and 711 for Skilled Workers Overseas.

The MPNP was set up to help employers in the province to find overseas talent to add to the present workforce.

They are nominated to receive nomination certificate from the Provincial Program. After obtaining this certificate the person can apply to seek permanent resident status. The immigration options here are attractive to persons who are ineligible to immigrate to Canada by using the Express Entry system because the requirements for eligibility are different.
