Immigrating to Manitoba becomes easier

This latest Manitoba PNP draw is a continuation of Manitoba conducting invitation rounds with high LAAs. In the previous EOI draw held on February 23, Manitoba invited a total of 583 candidates – an increase of 14 LAAs.

CRS scores also dropped in almost every category. In the previous draw, candidates required a score of:

  • 615 to be eligible for Skilled Workers in Manitoba (occupation-specific) - 3-point drop.
  • 693 to be eligible for Skilled Workers in Manitoba (all occupations) - 18-point drop.
  • 721 to be eligible for Skilled Worker Overseas - 55-point drop.

With back-to-back draws being conducted with higher LAAs and lower scores by Manitoba, it clearly indicates that the province targets to increase the number of candidates eligible to receive a provincial nomination under MPNP-managed streams.

Now is indeed the best time to immigrate to Canada.
