The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
The MPNP allows the province to nominate foreign workers and international graduates of its post-secondary institutions for Canadian permanent residence through its three popular immigration pathways – Skilled Worker in Manitoba, Skilled Worker Overseas and International Education Stream.
In order to be considered for immigration to Manitoba under one of these three categories, candidates must create an EOI profile, which is then given a score out of 1,000 based on various factors including education, work experience, connections to Manitoba and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.
A set number of the highest-scoring candidates are then invited to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws.
Express Entry candidates, who obtain a nomination from Manitoba, receive additional 600 points toward their CRS scores, effectively increasing their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.
The February 27 EOI draw brings the total number of LAAs issued by MPNP so far this year to 1075.
Invited candidates now have 60 days to submit their complete application for provincial nomination to MPNP.
