Manitoba invited 399 Skilled Workers Overseas and Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on April 19


The Canadian province of Manitoba held new immigration draw on April 19.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited 399 immigration candidates to apply for provincial nomination under its Skilled Workers Overseas stream.

Out of total Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) issued, 30 went to candidates under a strategic recruitment initiative with an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 703.

Another 369 candidates with an EOI score of at least 708 received invitations under a strategic recruitment initiative.

This draw did not issue invitations to immigration candidates under Skilled Workers in Manitoba nor International Education Stream categories.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is one of the most popular Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). It allows Manitoba to nominate foreign workers and international graduates of its post-secondary institutions for Canadian permanent residency 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 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 based on their human capital characteristics including their English or French language skills, work experience, education, Manitoba connections, and other factors.

Candidates with the highest scores are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws conducted by the MPNP.

Express Entry Candidates who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in subsequent Express Entry Draw.

Candidates, who receive an invitation in this draw, now have 60 calendar days to apply for the provincial nomination to MPNP.

Manitoba has now issued 2,269 LAA to immigration candidates so far in 2021.
