Manitoba invited 650 in latest PNP draw

Manitoba invited 650 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on September 23.  Invited candidates may now apply for a nomination from the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). If they get the nomination, it will support their final application for Canadian permanent residence and they will be able to apply as Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates. 

The results of the latest draw are as follows:

  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba — 529 invitations with a minimum EOI score of 401;
  • Skilled Workers Overseas — 67 invitations with a minimum EOI score of 718; and
  • International Education Stream — 54 invitations with no EOI score requirement.

A total of 135 invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), went to Express Entry candidates.

Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs:

Candidates with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan in order to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.

Candidates with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan in order to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.

Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System score at the federal level and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Manitoba immigration programs

Manitoba manages its immigration programs through the MPNP, which supports immigration applications to the federal government. Canadian provinces do not have the ability to give out permanent residency status, but they can help an application along by issuing provincial nominations.

If you want to benefit from a nomination from Manitoba, you need to register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. This puts you in a position to receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.

Manitoba then ranks candidates out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors, as well as their connections to the province.

The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories are designed to allow the province to identify candidates who meet its labour market needs.

Candidates overseas need to demonstrate connections to Manitoba through the likes of close family ties, previous experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. You do not need to be living in Manitoba at the time of your application to be eligible.

In order to receive an invitation under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category, you need to have a full-time job offer from a provincial employer.
