The invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) were divided across three immigration streams of Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) – Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas, and International Education Stream.
Distribution of Invitations
|Stream||Invitations/LAAs Issued||Minimum EOI score|
|Skilled Workers in Manitoba||206||775|
|Skilled Workers Overseas||43||673|
|International Education Stream||56||No EOI score requirement|
Out of total LAAs issued, 31 went to immigration candidates with profiles in the Federal Express Entry system.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
Bordered by Ontario to the east and Saskatchewan to the west, Manitoba is Canada’s fifth-most populous province.
The MPNP offers recent graduates, foreign skilled workers, businesspeople and their families with the intention and ability to successfully settle and economically establish in Manitoba, a pathway to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
There are three major streams under the MPNP that offer foreign skilled workers a pathway to settle in Canada permanently – Skilled Workers Overseas Stream, Skilled Workers in Manitoba Stream, and International Education Stream.
Express Entry Candidates, who successfully receive a nomination from Manitoba or any other Express Entry-aligned PNP, are awarded an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. This effectively increases their chances of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in subsequent Express Entry Draw.
MPNP’s nomination quota for 2022 is 6,367 and so far a total of 6,075 invitations have already been issued this year.
