Manitoba conducted the latest invitation round on 13th February inviting 242 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian Permanent Residence. This is the second Manitoba draw in two weeks.
Here is the breakup of the invitation issued in the 13th February draw:
15 invitations out of the total of 242 were issued to Express Entry candidates.
The Express Entry Program is the most popular pathway for economic migrants in Canada. The Express Entry Program manages the application pool for the three main economic migration programs- FSWP, FSTP and CEC.
Candidates in the Express Entry Pool are given a Comprehensive Ranking System score based on various factors like age, education, work experience, language proficiency etc. Candidates with the highest scores are invited in regular draws conducted by the IRCC.
The 15 Express Entry candidates invited in this draw will get 600 more points on their CRS score if they obtain a provincial nomination. The added points will ensure that the candidates receive an ITA for a Permanent Residence in the subsequent draws.
To be considered for a provincial nomination, an eligible candidate must have relevant work experience in an eligible occupation that is in demand. They also need to submit an EOI to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program. Eligible EOIs are scored out of a total of 1,000 points. The MPNP sends out invitations to the highest-scoring applicants.
The lowest-scoring candidate in the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream had a score of 525. In the Skilled Workers Overseas category, it was 611 points.
Foreign workers who have skills needed in the Manitoba labour market can apply under the Skilled Workers Overseas category. However, such workers need to prove that they have a connection to Manitoba. The connection could be a close relative living in the province, or any previous work experience or education in the province. Candidates who have an invitation under the Strategic Recruitment Initiatives of Manitoba also qualify under the Skilled Worker Overseas category
To qualify under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba category, you must be working in a full-time job in Manitoba.
International students who have completed their higher education from Manitoba and have a job offer can apply under the International Education Stream.
