The last provincial draw in Manitoba issued 189 invitations to immigrant applicants to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited skilled workers and international graduates through three immigration streams:
This draw brings the total number of invitations this year, also known as Letter of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to 3,671.
The LAAs were distributed as follows in the immigration streams, along with their minimum score required for Expression of Interest (EOI).
This was Manitoba PNP’s 99th draw since the program was introduced in April 2014.
Of the LAAs issued today, 18 were issued to applicants who had an Express Entry profile and a job seeker validation code. Express Entry is the system used by the federal government to manage applications for permanent residence.
Candidates in the express entry pool are then ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score which takes into account the human capital factors of each candidate such as age, work experience, education as well as proficiency in the field. English or French.
IRCC regularly holds raffles to invite the highest-ranked applicants in the Express Entry pool to apply for permanent residence.
Those who are able to get provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 CRS points and are virtually guaranteed to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
MPNP EOI System
If you wish to immigrate to Manitoba, you must register an expression of interest with the MPNP. If you are successful in getting the provincial nomination, you will receive an LAA from Manitoba PNP.
In Manitoba’s EOI system, applicants have ranked over 1,000 points for multiple factors, including the applicant’s work experience, education, English or French language skills, relationship with Manitoba, and other factors.
Different MPNP immigration streams
The Skilled Worker Overseas and Skilled Worker in Manitoba streams are specific to skilled workers and allow the province to appoint them to meet the needs of the province’s labor market.
If you are applying from overseas, you must display a connection with Manitoba. It could be family ties, having a friend in the province, or showing previous experience in Manitoba. Otherwise, you must receive an invitation as part of one of MPNP’s strategic recruitment initiatives.
Successful applicants in the Skilled Worker in Manitoba stream 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 institute in Manitoba may receive an LAA under the International Education stream if they have in-demand skills.
