On June 28, Manitoba sent a record-breaking invitation to Express Entry candidates to seek for a provincial nomination.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) welcomed 1,017 immigrants with a valid Express Entry ID and job seeker validation code to apply.
Candidates from the Skilled Workers Overseas stream were all encouraged to apply for a provincial nomination. Candidates must have already submitted a profile to Manitoba’s Expression of Interest (EOI) system in order to be invited. They also needed a 565 EOI score to acquire the Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA).
Candidates that applied through Express Entry are qualified for the Skilled Workers Overseas stream.
The total number of LAAs issued is 1,017.
Cutoff for ranking: 565
The EOI scoring matrix in Manitoba is used to get this score. It’s not the same as Express Entry’s federal Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This draw does not need the use of the CRS.
If invited candidates receive a provincial nomination from Manitoba, their score will be immediately increased by 600 points. This is not a Manitoba-specific issue. This incentive will be given to provincial nominees in any Express Entry-linked Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), putting them first in line to obtain an Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residence.
Concerning Express Entry
The Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program all use Express Entry as a management system for permanent residency applications for three federal high-skilled immigration programmes: the Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program.
By applying immediately through Express Entry, it is possible to bypass the PNP process and receive a permanent residency invitation. Given the 600-point prize, having a provincial nomination effectively ensures that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will ask you to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
When you submit your profile, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) ranks you based on characteristics such as your age, work experience, education, and language skills, among others.
Through regular Express Entry lotteries, the highest-scoring individuals are invited to apply for permanent residency.
The first step in filing for a provincial nomination in Manitoba is to submit a profile to the Express Entry pool.
Programs for immigrants in Manitoba
Manitoba offers a variety of immigration initiatives, this is aimed at luring international talent to the state. The MPNP, which supports immigration applications to the federal government, is how the province government regulates immigration. Provinces in Canada do not have the authority to grant permanent residency, although they can assist an application by giving provincial nominations.
To be considered for a nomination from Manitoba, you must first submit an Expression of Interest to the MPNP. This qualifies you for a LAA under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
Manitoba then assigns a score out of 1,000 to candidates based on their human capital and connections to the province.
The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba streams are intended to help Manitoba find applicants who fit the province’s labour market requirements.
Candidates from outside of Manitoba must demonstrate ties to the province, such as close family ties, prior experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. To be eligible, you do not need to live in Manitoba 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.
If they can demonstrate that they have in-demand abilities, international graduates who complete their studies in Manitoba may be eligible for an invitation under the International Education Stream.
