For an Express Entry candidate, a PNP nomination is worth 600 CRS points in itself.

Permanent residence submissions are handled by the federal department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Manitoba is bounded by Nunavut territory in the north and the US states of North Dakota and Minnesota in the south. While Ontario lies to the east of Manitoba, Saskatchewan makes up the neighboring province in the west.

The name ‘Manitoba’ literally means “the narrows of the Great Spirit”, a reference to Lake Manitoba that narrows in its centre.

With the latest round of invitations, Manitoba PNP has issued a total of 10,955 LAAs in the 28 MPNP draws in 2021.
