The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is one of the most popular Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). It allows the province to nominate qualified foreign workers and international graduates of its post-secondary institutions for Canadian permanent residence through three popular immigration pathways – Skilled Worker in Manitoba, Skilled Worker Overseas and International Education Stream.
In order to apply under both the Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories, applicants need to first register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the MPNP.
These EOI profiles are scored on the Manitoba points’ grid out of a total score of 1,000. Candidates with the highest scores are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws conducted by the MPNP.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination get an additional 600 points toward their overall Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which effectively guarantees them an ITA in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
The MPNP has issued 1,808 LAAs to immigration candidates in these categories so far this year.
