On 16th December 2021, Manitoba invited 349 Immigration Candidates to its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) under Express of Interest (EOI) Profiles.
There were three draws conducted, under this scheme, out of which 296 immigrants were invited as “skilled workers in Manitoba” in its first draw with a cut-off score of 447; 13 immigrants were invited as “skilled workers overseas” in its second draw with a cut-off score of 712, and 40 immigrants were invited with no cut-off under “International Education Stream”.
Amongst the three draws, 64 Profiles were invited under the Express Entry immigration system.
It is possible to apply for immigration without PNP, and receive an invitation for permanent residence under the Express Entry system, but the advantage of receiving the invitation in the PNP draw is to attain 600 additional CRS points, which will make certain that you will receive the invitation by the province.
Know everything about Manitoba’s Immigration Program!
Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is the only immigration program organized and managed by the Manitoba Province. Although, it is important to know that Canadian provinces don’t have the power to give permanent residency status to the immigrants, but they can issue provincial nominations in order to support the application.
If you are interested to receive an invitation from Manitoba province, you need to register your profile under Expression of Interest (EOI). You will be likely to receive the invitation under Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Worker in Overseas Streams from the Manitoba Province. Then, Manitoba ranks an individual’s profile out of 1000 points depending on various factors on the basis of your profile.
