The Canadian Province of Manitoba invited 180 skilled workers, international student graduates and Express Entry candidates to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in its latest Expression of Interest (EOI) draw under Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) on November 7.
The invitations, which are commonly known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), were distributed among the three immigration streams:
SKILLED WORKERS IN MANITOBA
- Number of Letters of Advice to Apply issued: 133
- Ranking score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 560
INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION STREAM
- Number of Letters of Advice to Apply issued: 23
SKILLED WORKERS OVERSEAS
- Number of Letters of Advice to Apply issued: 24 who were invited directly by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative
- Ranking score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 719
Out of the total 180 LAAs issued in November 7 draw, 23 went to Express Entry candidates with a valid Express Entry ID and job seeker validation code.
The MPNP allows Manitoba to nominate foreign workers and international graduates of its post-secondary institutions for Canadian permanent residence through its three popular immigration pathways: Skilled Worker in Manitoba, Skilled Worker Overseas and International Education Stream.
In order to be considered for immigration to Manitoba under one of these three categories, candidates must create an EOI profile, which is then given a score out of 1,000 based on various factors including education, work experience, connections to Manitoba and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.
A set number of the highest-scoring candidates are then invited to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws.
Express Entry candidates, who obtain a nomination from Manitoba, receive additional 600 points toward their CRS scores, effectively increasing their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.
Candidates who received invites in November 7th invitation round, now have 60 days to submit their complete application for provincial nomination to MPNP.
