Province of Manitoba issued Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to the candidates who have applied for Canada permanent residence through Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).
Draw held on June 7 issued 209 LAAs, to the candidates registered under MPNP’s Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Worker Overseas and International Education streams (IES). Invitations issued on the latest draw broke down as follows:
Once a candidate receives a LAA, they have 60 days to submit their complete application to the MPNP that allows the province to nominate skilled economic immigrants for Canadian permanent residence.
For candidates to be considered for provincial nomination from the province of Manitoba, the very first step is to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the MPNP. Based on the credentials submitted by the candidate, their EOI profiles are given points that determine rank of EOI profiles in the pool. Highest ranked profile is then issued LAA via regularly held draws at least once a month.
Of the 209 LAAs, 18 were given to the express entry registered candidates. Express entry, a point based program, manages the profiles of the candidates registered under economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). If an express entry registered client is able to get a provincial nomination, they are awarded 600 CRS points. These many points make sure that the candidate is able to land an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for Canada PR visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Manitoba Provincial Nomination Program (MPNP) issued a record 5,207 nominations last year for Canadian permanent residence status. Out of these 5,207 nominations, 65 per cent were given to candidates in Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream and 33 per cent went to Skilled Worker Overseas candidates.
Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream is for the eligible temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who are currently working in Manitoba and have been offered a permanent, full-time job with an eligible employer of the province.
Skilled Workers Overseas allows the MPNP to nominate the skilled and eligible immigrants living outside of Canada having an established Manitoba connection, previous work experience or education in the province, or an invitation under one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. 60 LAAs issued for Skilled Workers Overseas candidates were invited directly through Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
