On July 18, Province of Manitoba held their latest draw that invited a total of 173 Skilled Worker Candidates who have applied for Provincial Nomination for Canadian Permanent Residency.
Through its Provincial Nominee Program – Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), Manitoba is able to invite the immigrants with the required skills that can help in the economic development of the province. Invitations are called Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) that are issued through three MPNP’s Immigration streams: Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas and International Education.
Following is the breakdown on how the LAAs were issued through MPNP’s immigration streams:
Other than the above mentioned LAAs, 29 invitations were also issued to the Federal Government’s Express Entry registered candidates. Express entry, a point-based program, manages the profiles of the candidates who have submitted their profile under Canada’s three skilled economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSPW), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
For an express entry candidate to get a provincial nomination certificate, it gives a major boost to their CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score with 600 points. These many points make sure that candidate is given the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Other than the above-mentioned number of candidates, 40 Skilled Overseas Candidates were also invited in the latest draw directly by MPNP through their Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
To apply under MPNP skilled Worker sub-streams, candidates need to first complete their Expression of Interest (EOI) profile. To create their EOI profile, candidates must provide with details like education, work experience, proficiency in English or French and must show their connection to Manitoba and other major details. Based on this information, the candidate’s EOI profiles are awarded points. Profiles with the most points are then invited by Manitoba through regularly held draws.
For the draw held on July 18th, the following are the minimum required points:
With this draw total LAAs issued to skilled Worker immigration candidates this year (2019) has come to 5,506.
