A total of 141 Manitoba immigration candidates were invited to apply for a provincial nomination on June 17.

If they successfully receive the nomination from the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), it will support their final application for Canadian permanent residence.

Skilled worker candidates needed to have profiles in Manitoba's Expression of Interest (EOI) system in order to be invited. The the results of the latest draw are as follows:

A total of 10 invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), went to Express Entry candidates.

The new draw is very similar to the previous MPNP draw when the province issued just one more invitation for a total of 142 candidates.

Manitoba immigration programs

If you are a skilled worker and want to immigrate Manitoba, you need to register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. This puts you in a position to receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.

Manitoba then ranks candidates in the EOI pool out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors and their connections to the province.

Overseas candidates need to demonstrate connections to Manitoba through close family ties, previous experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. You do not need to be living in Manitoba at the time of your application to be eligible.

International students who graduate from a Manitoba institution can receive an LAA under the International Education Stream if they demonstrate that they have in-demand skills.

Manitoba invites Express Entry candidates

Express Entry is the main way Canada manages skilled worker applications. You can skip the PNP process and apply for permanent residence to the federal government through the Express Entry system.

Not everyone who is a good fit for Manitoba's labour market will necessarily have a high Express Entry score. Enter the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). It allows provinces to nominate candidates in the Express Entry pool. Provincial nominees automatically get 600 points toward their overall score, which gives them a sure-shot at receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence.
