Manitoba held another round of invitations, inviting 212 immigrant applicants to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence on September 10.
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, along with their respective Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirements:
The province has issued 3,511 LAAs to applicants in these categories to date in 2020. This was Manitoba’s 98th draw since the program began in April 2014.
22 Express Entry candidates invited
Of the LAAs issued in the September 10 draw, 22 went to applicants with a valid profile in the federal Express Entry system.
Applicants who qualify for the Express Entry pool are ranked based on a 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 in the Express Entry pool. Those who receive a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 CRS points and are effectively guaranteed an ITA from IRCC.
Express Entry applicants who received a Manitoba provincial nomination in this draw have declared valid Express Entry identification and provided a job seeker validation code.
Basics of Manitoba PNP
Individuals wishing to immigrate under the MPNP must register an EOI with the Manitoba PNP to receive an LAA through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas streams.
In the Manitoba PNP point’s system, applicants are given EOI scores 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.
The Skilled Worker Overseas Class and Skilled Workers in Manitoba Streams allow the province to nominate skilled workers who can meet the needs of the Manitoba labor market.
Applicants overseas must have an established connection to 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 applicants 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 the province can receive an LAA under the International Education stream if they have in-demand skills.
