Manitoba held a new draw inviting 213 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on August 28.
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) 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 with their respective Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirements:
The province has issued 3,299 LAAs to applicants in these categories to date in 2020. This was Manitoba’s 97th draw since the program began in April 2014.
Express entry linked MPNP stream
Of the LAAs issued in the August 28 draw, 23 were awarded 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 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 in 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 Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
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.
Basic of Manitoba PNP
Individuals wishing to immigrate under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) must register an expression of interest 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 their English or French language skills, education, work experience, relationship with Manitoba, and other factors.
The Skilled Worker Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba 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 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 Manitoba may receive an LAA under the International Education stream if they have in-demand skills.
