Canada’s Manitoba has released the results of its latest round of invitations on October 7. Across three Provincial Nominee Programs, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited a total of 426 immigration candidates (PNPs).
These three programs include:
- Skilled Workers in Manitoba — 350 invitations with a minimum EOI score of 446;
- Skilled Workers Overseas — 21 invitations with a minimum EOI score of 729; and
- International Education Stream — 55 invitations with no EOI score requirement.
About 84 of these invites were sent to candidates who applied through the Express Entry procedure.
The Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program are all part of Express Entry, which is Canada’s application management system for three federal high-skilled immigration programs.
The Comprehensive Ranking System is used to rate immigration prospects who submit their profile to the Express Entry system (CRS).
Age, work experience, education, and language skills, among other things, are all given points. However, through regular Express Entry lotteries, the highest-scoring individuals are invited to apply for permanent residency.
By applying immediately through Express Entry, it is possible to bypass the PNP process and receive a permanent residency invitation. A provincial nomination, on the other hand, earns candidates an automatic 600 CRS points, practically ensuring that they will obtain an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
The MPNP, which supports immigration applications to the federal government, is in charge of Manitoba’s immigration programs. Provinces in Canada do not have the authority to grant permanent residency, although they can assist an application by giving provincial nominations. To be considered for a nomination from Manitoba, you must first submit an Expression of Interest to the MPNP. This qualifies you for a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) through the Manitoba Skilled Workers and Manitoba Skilled Workers Overseas programs.
Manitoba then assigns a score out of 1,000 to candidates based on their human capital and connections to the province. If they can demonstrate that they have in-demand abilities, international graduates who complete their studies in Manitoba may be eligible for an invitation under the International Education Stream.
Manitoba has encouraged 8,691 immigrants to register for a provincial nomination so far in 2021.
