Published: September 13, 2019

A new draw held September 12 by the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program invited 347 skilled foreign workers and international graduates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. 

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, or MPNP, has now issued more than 700 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) through its Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas categories and its International Education Stream in less than a month.

A total of 6,157 LAAs have now been issued in 2019 through these three immigration pathways.

Express Entry invitations

Of the 347 invitations issued September 12, 45 went to candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system.

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

Candidates in the Express Entry pool who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are moved to the front of the line for an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

To be considered for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence from Manitoba, Express Entry candidates must have eligible work experience in an occupation that is listed as in-demand by the MPNP, among other requirements.

Skilled Worker in Manitoba

The September 12 draw issued a total of 254 LAAs to candidates in the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Category, which provides a pathway to permanent residence for temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who are working in Manitoba and have an eligible offer of full-time, permanent employment from their employer, among other criteria.

Manitoba's skilled worker categories operate on an Expression of Interest (EOI) basis. To be considered for a Letter of Advice to Apply, candidates must create an online profile and provide the required information on their education, work experience and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.

The profiles of eligible candidates are given a score out of 1,000 and placed in the MPNP's EOI pool.

The lowest-ranked Skilled Worker in Manitoba candidate invited in the September 12 draw had a score of 545.

Skilled Worker Overseas

Another 53 LAAs were issued through the MPNP's Skilled Worker Overseas Category.

All candidates were invited directly through a Strategic Recruitment Initiative, which can include overseas recruitment missions organized by the MPNP in association with Manitoba employers.

The lowest-scoring Skilled Worker Overseas candidate in this draw had an EOI score of 706.

International Education Stream

The International Education Stream (IES) is for Manitoba graduates with skills required by the province’s labour market needs. 

There are three subcategories in this stream: Career Employment Pathway, Graduate Internship Pathway, and the Student Entrepreneur Pathway.

The MPNP issued 40 LAAs to International Education Stream candidates in the September 12 draw.
