The Canadian province of Manitoba conducted a new immigration draw on December 16, 2021.
A total of 349 immigration candidates across three Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams – Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas and International Education Stream received invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) for provincial nomination for Canada permanent residence.
Distribution of invitations
|Stream||Invitations Issued||Minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score|
|Skilled Workers in Manitoba||296||447|
|Skilled Workers Overseas||13||712|
|International Education Stream||40||No EOI score requirement|
Out of total LAAs issued, 64 went to immigration candidates with valid profiles in Federal Express Entry system
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. Candidates with the highest scores are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws conducted by the MPNP.
Candidates, who received an LAA in this draw, now have 60 calendar days to submit their complete application for provincial nomination to MPNP. Successful candidates will be awarded an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. This will increase their chances to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in subsequent Express Entry Draw.
Manitoba PNP has now invited 10,786 immigration candidates so far in 2021.
