Manitoba PNP issues invitations to 212 candidates so they can apply for nomination

Manitoba is proving to be one of the most immigrant-friendly provinces in Canada, even at the time of the pandemic. The province organized yet another invitation round on September 10 and issued invitations to 212 immigration candidates. Successful candidates will now be able to submit their applications for a provincial nomination that will help them in securing permanent citizenship.

During the draw, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) distributed invitations among international student graduates and skilled workers belonging to three immigration streams: Skilled Workers Overseas, Skilled Workers in Manitoba, and International Education streams. The invitations are also called Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) since they enable candidates to take the next step in attaining a provincial nomination.

Distribution of invitations

The September 20 draw saw the distribution of the LAAs based on the following Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirements:

  • Skilled Workers Overseas- Minimum score of 824.
  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba- Minimum score of 475.
  • International Education Stream- No EOI score requirement.

The majority of invitations were issued under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category at 168 LAAs, while candidates from the International Education Stream received 35 LAAs. Only 9 LAAs were given to candidates under the Skilled Workers Overseas- category.

So far, in 2020, Manitoba has distributed 3,511 LAAs among immigration candidates belonging to these categories. Among the invitations issued during the September 10 draw, 22 were assigned to candidates who have a valid profile under the federal Express Entry system. Candidates who have the qualifications to be a part of the Express Entry pool are evaluated on the basis of certain human capital factors and assigned ranks accordingly.
