Out of the 249 invitations issued in Manitoba’s latest draw which held on 17th Jan 2020, 22 went to candidates in the Express Entry pool. The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for 3 of Canada’s main Economic-Class immigration categories i.e.
The Express Entry candidates are given a score based on a CRS which measures human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and language ability. The highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence (PR) through regular draws from the Express Entry pool. The Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 CRS points which effectively guarantee an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw. The candidates required to be considered for a provincial nomination from Manitoba, Express Entry candidates must have eligible work experience in one of Manitoba’s in-demand occupations, among other requirements. They must also submit a separate Expression of Interest to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program.
To be invited for a provincial nomination from Manitoba through both the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas categories, candidates must register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). An Expression of Interest (EOI) is an online profile that is ranked out of a score of 1,000. Points are awarded for a candidate’s education, work experience, connections to Manitoba and proficiency in English or French and with other factors.
A set number of the highest-scoring candidates receive a Letters of Advice to Apply (LAA) which allows them to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence from Manitoba. In the latest draw which held on Jan 17th, the lowest-ranked candidate invited under the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream had a score of 545 and the lowest-ranked candidate invited from the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream which has a score of 708.
