Manitoba invites Express Entry candidates in largest ever draw

Manitoba invited a total of 1,140 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence in the latest Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw, held on July 27.

This draw was Manitoba's largest ever provincial draw. Invited individuals were invited through the Skilled Workers Overseas stream under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).

The invitations are known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAA). These LAAs were given to individuals with a minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score of 557.

The Skilled Workers Overseas stream is used by the Manitoba provincial government to fill provincial labour needs.

Candidates who are applying from outside Canada must have a connection to the province. This includes having close family or friends in Manitoba, previous experience in Manitoba, or an invitation under one of the MPNP's Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.

For this draw, all candidates who were considered for the Skilled Workers Overseas were invited under a Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.

Express Entry

All the LAAs in this draw went to Express Entry candidates. Express Entry is the main way for skilled workers to immigrate to Canada. 

Candidates can receive a permanent residence invitation by applying through Express Entry directly. Candidates in the Express Entry pool can also receive an invitation to apply from provinces such as Manitoba.

Candidates who have an Express Entry profile are ranked according to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). They are assessed on factors such as their age, work experience, education and language ability.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invites the highest-ranking candidates to apply for permanent residence in regular Express Entry draws.

Those who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 CRS points, practically guaranteeing an invitation in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
