The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program issued 170 new invitations to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in the latest Expression of Interest draw held May 9.

Out of the 170 invitations, 15 went to Manitoba immigration candidates with a valid federal Express Entry profile and job seeker validation code.

The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

If their nomination is approved, these candidates will be issued an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. The additional points place them in a favorable position to receiving a federal Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in a future Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) draw.

The majority of invitations went to Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream candidates with a total 101 invitations issued. The lowest-ranked candidate invited under the stream had a score of 569 under Manitoba’s unique points grid.

The rest of the invitations went to 52 Skilled Workers Overseas and 17 International Education Stream candidates. The lowest-ranked Skilled Workers Overseas candidate had a score of 616.

The International Education Stream targets international graduates of Manitoba post-secondary institutions who meet the criteria of one of three pathways. The MPNP encourages graduates to sign up for an information session with the program prior to submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) to apply for one of the International Education pathways.

All Skilled Workers Overseas candidates were invited directly by the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) through the Strategic Recruitment Initiative.

In these overseas recruitment initiatives, the MPNP works with employers in Manitoba to fill available positions in the province.

Where to begin

To start the journey of immigrating to Manitoba under the MPNP, foreign nationals must first submit an EOI to the program. To submit an EOI, candidates respond to a number of questions about their past education, work experience, language skills and connections to the Manitoba, among others.

The MPNP assigns candidate profiles a score based on the information provided and ranks eligible candidates against one another.

The highest-scoring candidates who demonstrate a greater likelihood of achieving economic integration and long-term contribution in the province are invited to submit a complete application for a provincial nomination during periodic provincial draws.
