Manitoba province has recently nominated immigration candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence. These immigrants include skilled foreign workers and international graduates residing in the area. Manitoba province can nominate foreign nationals if they meet the minimum skills the local employers require.
The draw published on the 15th of August shows that 360 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) were issued by the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). These letters were issued to candidates who qualified for a provincial nomination. These candidates can now apply to the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent resident status in Canada. Out of the 360 letters, 32 were issued to candidates that already had a profile in the federal Express Entry system.

The MPNP has three streams; the Skilled Worker Stream, the International Education stream, and the Business investor stream. The 360 letters issued came from two streams, the Skilled Worker and International Education streams. These two streams get the most nominations. Last year, the MPNP released 5207 nominations, 98 percent directed to candidates in these two categories of workers. The MPNP, Skilled Worker Stream, is locally driven and based on the requirements of Manitoba employers. MPNP skilled worker stream has two groups: the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and the Skilled Workers Overseas.
