In the first Canada immigration draw of 2022, Manitoba granted 443 letters of advice to apply to skilled workers and international graduates through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).
In 1998, Manitoba became the first province to establish a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). It needed the PNP to advertise itself as a destination for talented immigrants because it was a small province with few newcomers.
- To begin 2022, Manitoba granted 443 letters of reference through the MPNP to qualified employees and international graduates.
- People might apply for three distinct Provincial Nominee Programs in Manitoba through this scheme (PNPs).
- It is possible to bypass the PNP process and receive a permanent residency invitation by applying through Express Entry right away.
The MPNP, which supports immigration applications to the federal government, manages Manitoba’s immigration programs.
Provinces in Canada do not have the authority to grant permanent residency, although they can assist an application by giving provincial nominations.
The program allowed people to apply for three different Provincial Nominee Programs in Manitoba (PNPs). The number of invites sent out for each program, as well as the minimum score cutoff set by the province’s Expression of Interest (EOI) system, are listed below:
- Skilled Workers in Manitoba –— 357 invitations with a minimum score of 459;
- Skilled Workers Overseas –— 53 invitations with a minimum score of 711; and
- International Education Stream –— 33 invitations with no score requirement.
In 2021, the province of Manitoba hosted roughly 30 drawings in each stream, inviting 11,179 immigrants to apply for a provincial nomination.
Ninety-seven of these invites were sent to people who applied through the Express Entry system.
The Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program are part of Express Entry, Canada’s application management system for three federal high-skilled immigration programs.
The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) rates immigration prospects who submit a profile to the Express Entry system.
Age, work experience, education, and language skills, among other things, are all given points. The highest-scoring individuals are invited to apply for permanent residency through regular Express Entry lotteries.
By applying immediately through Express Entry, it is possible to bypass the PNP process and receive a permanent residency invitation.
A provincial nomination, on the other hand, earns candidates an automatic 600 CRS points, practically ensuring that they will obtain an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
