Manitoba Invites 191 Immigration Candidates In Its 100th PNP Draw
The October 8 draw brings the total number of PNP invitations issued by Manitoba so far this year up to 3,862.
In its latest draw, Manitoba issued invitations to 191 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited skilled workers and international graduates through three immigration streams—Skilled Workers in Manitoba, International Education Stream, Skilled Workers Overseas.
The invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), were distributed as follows along with their respective Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirement:
· Skilled Workers in Manitoba— 152 LAAs with a minimum ranking score of 528;
· Skilled Workers Overseas— 14 LAAs with a minimum ranking score of 611; and
· International Education Stream— 25 LAAs, no EOI score requirement.
This is Manitoba’s 100th draw since the program began in 2014.
Among the LAAs issued in the October 8 draw, 20 went to candidates with a valid profile in the federal Express Entry system. Express Entry candidates who received a provincial nomination from Manitoba in this draw declared a valid Express Entry ID and provided a job seeker validation code.
Manitoba’s EOI system
People who want to immigrate through Manitoba’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) need to register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP to receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
Under Manitoba’s system, such candidates are ranked out of 1,000 points for human capital characteristics such as their English or French language skills, education, work experience, Manitoba connections, and other factors.
About Manitoba immigration streams
The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba streams allow the province to nominate skilled workers who can support Manitoba’s labour market needs.
People who are applying from overseas need to have an established connection to Manitoba. This can be demonstrated through close family ties or friends in the province, previous experience in Manitoba, or an invitation under one of the MPNP’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.
Candidates do not need to be physically present in Manitoba at the time of the application to be eligible.
Successful candidates in the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category must meet certain criteria, such as having a full-time permanent job offer from an employer in Manitoba.
International students that graduated from an educational institution in Manitoba may receive an LAA under the International Education Stream if they have in-demand skills.
