In the latest Expression of Interest Draw #98 on September 10, 2020, the province of Manitoba has invited 212 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination through the MPNP. Those successful in securing a provincial nomination get a step closer to applying to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] for Canadian permanent residence.
As an applicant cannot apply for Canada PR directly unless invited by the federal government of Canada, a provincial nomination – fetching an additional 600 ranking points for an Express Entry profile – continues to be the route for Canada PR in 2020.
With a profile boosted towards the top of the Express Entry pool with the additional 600 CRS [Comprehensive Ranking System] points, a PNP nomination is a guarantee of receiving an invitation to apply in the subsequent draws. Highest-ranked profiles are issued invitations in the federal Express Entry draws that are held at regular intervals.
By the MPNP is implied the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program. Manitoba is 1 of the 9 provinces and 2 territories that are a part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program [PNP].
In the latest MPNP invitation round, of the 212 Letters of Advice [LAAs] issued, 22 went to Express Entry candidates.
