Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
Manitoba held its latest round of immigration invitations on February 24, 2022. In Manitoba’s most recent nominee draw, the province invited a total of 278 skilled workers and international students to apply for nomination.
Candidates invited in the February 24 MPNP draw had a submitted Expression of Interest (EOI) profile under one of three immigration programs:
– Skilled Worker Overseas; or
Skilled Workers in Manitoba:
Number of Invitations issued: 206
Score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 612
International Education Stream:
Number of Invitations issued: 33
Score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: N/A
Skilled Workers Overseas:
Number of Invitations issued: 39
Score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 685
In Manitoba’s latest draw, only Skilled Workers Overseas candidates with an invitation under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative were considered for nomination. Receiving an invitation under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative provides a candidate with an additional 500 points toward their MPNP score.
Manitoba has three main skilled worker streams: Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas, and the International Education stream. To submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile, a candidate must meet the eligibility criteria for one of these three programs.
Once a candidate has submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI), Manitoba will rank the profile using their unique points grid.
In regular draws, MPNP issues “Letters of Advice of Apply” (LAA) to the highest-ranking candidates.
Successful applicants will subsequently be invited to apply to the Canadian government for permanent residency.
Manitoba recently revealed that they are assembling an advisory council to recommend improvements to their current immigration policies and programs. The council will focus on:
In the announcement, Manitoba’s immigration minister confirmed that 2021 saw the province’s highest ever immigration levels since the nominee program began in 1998.
“While we’re very proud of these results, we know there are different areas of the labour market that need people with very specific skills to enable them to grow further,” said Heather Stefanson, Manitoba premier.
