The Canadian province of Manitoba has done an excellent job of maintaining immigration policies during this global crisis. They have organized draws regularly in order to invite more eligible candidates who deserve a shot at obtaining a nomination from the province.
Manitoba organized new draw
During a recent provincial draw, Manitoba distributed 189 invitations amongst immigration candidates who can now apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) issued invitations to international graduates and skilled workers belonging to the following immigration streams:
- International Education Stream
- Skilled Workers in Manitoba
- Skilled Workers Overseas
Taking this draw into consideration, the province has issued 3,671 Letters of Advice to Apply in 2020.
Details of the draw
The distribution pattern of the LAAs across the different streams was as follows:
- Skilled Workers in Manitoba – 160 LAAs
- Skilled Workers Overseas – 4 LAAs
- International Education – 25 LAAs
The minimum required Expression of Interest (EOI) score for Skilled Workers in Manitoba was 464, while candidates in the Skilled Workers Overseas category required a minimum EOI score of at least 847. The International Education category required no minimum scores.
Out of all the invitations issued during the draw, 18 were given to candidates with an existing profile in the Express Entry pool and a job seeker validation code.
If you are looking to immigrate to Manitoba, you must register an Expression of Interest under the MPNP. Manitoba’s EOI system ranks candidates out of 1,000 points on the basis of education, work experience, language ability, provincial connections, and other such factors.
