Manitoba held its biggest draw of the year, inviting 253 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on August 13.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited skilled workers and international graduate students through three immigration streams: Manitoba Skilled Worker, Overseas Skilled Worker, and International Education Stream.
The invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), were distributed as follows:
The province has issued 3,086 LAAs to applicants in these categories to date in 2020. This was Manitoba’s 96th draw since the program began in April 2014.
MPNP EOI’s Systems
Individuals wishing to immigrate under Manitoba’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) must register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the MPNP to receive an LAA through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas streams.
In the Manitoba system, these applicants are ranked out of 1,000 points for human capital characteristics such as English or French language skills, education, work experience, relationship with Manitoba, and other factors.
Here are the EOI score thresholds for the August 13 draw:
MPNP Immigration Streams
The Skilled Worker Overseas Class and the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Streams allow the province to nominate skilled workers who can meet the needs of the Manitoba labor market.
People who are abroad must have an established connection with Manitoba. This can be evidenced by close family ties or friends in the province, previous experience in Manitoba, or an invitation to one of MPNP’s strategic recruitment initiatives.
Applicants do not need to be physically present in Manitoba at the time of application to be eligible. Successful candidates in the Manitoba Skilled Worker category must meet certain criteria, such as having a permanent full-time job offer from a Manitoba employer.
International students who have graduated from an educational institution in Manitoba may receive an LAA under the International Education stream if they have in-demand skills.
Of the LAAs issued in the August 13 draw, nine were awarded to candidates with a valid profile in the federal Express Entry system.
Applicants who qualify for the Express Entry pool are ranked based on a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score that takes into account human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and language skills.
Top-rated applicants are invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada through regular draws from the Express Entry pool. Those who receive a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 CRS points and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from IRCC for Canada PR Visa.
Express Entry applicants who received a Manitoba provincial nomination in this draw have declared a valid Express Entry ID and provided a Job Seeker Validation Code.
