Out of total 196 invitations issued in this draw, 40 went to Express Entry candidates.
Invitations have been issued to candidates who are working in a regulated occupation. However, applications of those candidates who are not actually working in a regulated occupation, or who do not provide proof of having completed all licensing steps to be employed in Manitoba, might get refused by the MPNP.
The MPNP is one of the most popular Canadian PNPs that allows Manitoba to nominate foreign workers and international graduates of its post-secondary institutions for Canadian permanent residence through three popular immigration pathways.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination get additional 600 points toward their overall Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which effectively guarantees them an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
Manitoba has now issued total 4,469 invitations to immigration candidates in 2020.
