On Jan 14th 2021, Manitoba invited 272 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.
In this draw Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) invited skilled worker and international graduates to apply to at least one of the subsequent three immigration streams:
- Skilled Worker in Manitoba
- International Education Stream
- Skilled Workers Overseas
There is total number of invitation, also referred to as letters of advice to apply (LAAs), all along with their necessary minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) scores:
- Skilled Workers in Manitoba— 236 LAAs with a score a minimum of 461;
- Skilled Workers Overseas— 7 LAAs with a score of a minimum 722; and
- International Education Stream— 29 LAAs, no Expression of Interest score requirement.
All numbers of invitation out of 272 LAAs issues. 18 visited express entry candidates. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) says that they are going to decline these candidates who don’t have a valid express entry ID, job seeker validation code, and verifiable experience Manitoba’s Occupation in demand list.
The Manitoba Province is only considered skilled worker overseas candidates during this draw if they were directly invited under a strategic recruitment initiative.
Candidates are going to be scored quite the minimum ranking but they didn’t receive an LAA, it might be because:
- Their third-party language test did not have a valid test number;
- Their language test is no longer valid; or
- Their candidate was invited under a strategic recruitment initiative, but they did not send a valid invitation number.
Manitoba said that application who is in one among these scenarios can update their EOI profile with the right information so as to be considered for subsequent draw.
The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba streams allow the province to nominate skilled workers who can support Manitoba’s labor market needs.
Candidates who want to apply from overseas need to have an established connection to Manitoba. This can be established through close family ties or friends in the province, previous experience in Manitoba, or an invitation under one of the MPNP’s strategic recruitment initiatives.
Applicants don’t have need to be physically present in Manitoba at the time of the application to be eligible. Students can receive an LAA under the international education stream if they have in demand skills if they are graduated from an educational institution in Manitoba.
The first step to receiving a provincial nomination through Manitoba’s enhanced PNP is to submit their profile into the federal government’s Express entry system. Applicant who are eligible for express entry are ranked based on a crs score that considers human capital factors such as age, work experience, education and language ability.
Those who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 crs points and effectively guaranteed an invitation to Apply (ITA) from immigration, refugees and Citizenship Canada.
Express entry candidates who received a provincial nomination from Manitoba PNP in this draw declared a valid ID and provided a job seeker validation code.
