Manitoba invited 206 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence


The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) conducted another immigration draw on October 22, 2020.

Total 206 invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), were issued to immigration candidates including Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.

Distribution of LAAs along with their respective Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirement:

The invitations were distributed to immigration candidates under three popular streams of MPNP.

Stream Total LAAs issued Minimum EOI score
Skilled Workers in Manitoba 161 375
Skilled Workers Overseas 15 771
International Education Stream 30 No EOI score requirement

Out of total LAAs issued in this draw, 22 went to candidates who had an active Express Entry profile.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (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 its three popular immigration pathways.

In order to apply under both the Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories, applicants need to first register an 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 a 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 Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw.

Manitoba has now issued total of 4,068 LAAs for provincial nomination so far this year.
