The Canadian provinces have been focusing on inviting larger batches of skilled workers who will be able to contribute to the economy in the post-pandemic scenario. Manitoba has been holding draws regularly, and the latest draw took place on June 17.
Details of the draw
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw held on June 17 issued a total of 141 invitations to eligible immigration candidates. The recipients will now have the chance to submit their applications for provincial nomination. Immigration candidates aspire to get provincial nominations because they help to boost permanent residence applications in the future.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) issues provincial nominations to skilled candidates who have already created profiles under the Expression of Interest (EOI) system of the province. The candidates who finally get provincial nominations will receive 600 extra CRS points.
For the June 17 draw, Manitoba issued 95 invitations via the Skilled Workers in the Manitoba category, and their required EOI score was 430. On the other hand, Skilled Workers Overseas candidates with an EOI score of 703 or above received 24 invitations. Finally, a total of 22 invitations went to International Education Stream candidates and they did not have to fulfill any EOI score requirement.
If you are interested in immigrating to Canada via one of the existing immigration programs, you have to complete your Expression of Interest registration with the MPNP. The province usually ranks candidates on the basis of vital human capital factors.
