Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) held their latest provincial draw on June 7, inviting 142 skilled immigrants to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa.
Minimum points required in the latest Manitoba PNP draw were as follows:
A total of 13 invitations, also known as Application Notification Letters (LAAs), were sent to Express Entry applicants.
Manitoba regularly invites immigrants to apply through one of the following three streams of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP): Skilled Worker in Manitoba, International Education Stream, and Skilled Worker Overseas. The Skilled Worker streamís candidate must have an EOI profile submitted to the MPNP.
Manitoba's previous draw was a bit out of place. The province has invited 404 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination, while typically only a handful are invited - as we have seen in this draw.
The May 25 draw was comparable to this new round of invitation. During this draw, the province issued 232 invitations, many more than today.
What to expect from Manitoba PNP in the coming time?
Manitoba has various immigration streams that are specially designed to attract international talent to live in the province as permanent residents. The provincial government manages its immigration through the MPNP, which handles immigration applications with the federal government. Canadian provinces do not have the capacity to grant permanent resident status, but they can assist an application by issuing provincial appointments. The federal government has the final say on who can become a Canadian permanent resident.
If you want a nomination from Manitoba, you must register an expression of interest with the MPNP. This allows you to receive an LAA through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Abroad streams.
Manitoba then ranks applicants in the EOI pool out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors and their connection to the province.
The Skilled Worker Abroad Category and Skilled Worker in Manitoba streams are designed to allow the province to identify candidates who meet the needs of its labor market.
Applicants from overseas must demonstrate a connection to Manitoba through close family ties, previous experience in the province, or invitation to one of Manitoba's strategic recruitment initiatives. You are not required to live in the province to be eligible for the process.
International graduates studying in Manitoba may receive an LAA under the International Education stream if they demonstrate that they have desirable skills.
