Manitoba PNP Draw: The province invited 278 eligible immigrants

Manitoba has officially asked 1,309 potential immigrants to compete for a provincial nomination in 2022. Manitoba has also announced information on a fresh immigration draw scheduled for February 24. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) welcomed applicants for three different Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). According to the province's Expression of Interest (EOI) system, a total of 206 invites were given under the Manitoba Skilled Workers Category and that too with a minimum score of 612.

Nearly 39 individuals with a minimum score of 685 were invited under the Overseas Skilled Workers category. Also, the international education stream welcomed 33 individuals with no minimum score requirement. Nearly 66 of these invites were sent to applicants via the Express Entry mechanism.

The Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program are all managed through Express Entry, Canada's application management system for three federal high-skilled immigration programmes.

Candidates for immigration who submit a profile to the Express Entry system are ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Age, job experience, education, and language abilities, among other things, are all given points. The top-scoring individuals are invited to apply for permanent residency through regular Express Entry lotteries.

By applying directly through Express Entry, it is possible to acquire a permanent residency invitation. On the other hand, a provincial nomination provides candidates with an additional 600 CRS points, practically ensuring that they will obtain an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a later Express Entry lottery.

The MPNP, which facilitates immigration applications to the federal government, handles Manitoba's immigration programmes. Although Canadian provinces do not have the authority to grant permanent residency, they can assist applicants by making provincial nominations.

If you wish to be nominated by Manitoba, you must first submit an Expression of Interest to the MPNP. This qualifies you for an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas programmes.

Manitoba then assigns candidates a point value out of 1,000 based on their human capital elements and connections to the province. The Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories are intended to help the province find applicants who satisfy the province's labour market demands.

Candidates from outside Manitoba must demonstrate ties to the province, such as close family ties, past experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba's Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. To be eligible, you do not need to be a Manitoba resident at the time of your application.

You must have a full-time employment offer from a provincial company to be eligible for an invitation under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category. In addition, international graduates who complete their study in Manitoba may be eligible for an invitation under the International Education Stream provided they can demonstrate in-demand skills.
