On the 15th of March 2019, CIC News reported that Manitoba announced its interest to obtain skilled workers overseas candidates under the expression of the interest draw, on 14th of March same year. The province issued 337 LAAs (Letters of Advice to Apply), seeking skilled workers overseas candidates to apply for the nomination of permanent residency to Canada. Two hundred and seventy-four of the total number of letters targeted and landed in the hands of candidates with expertise in Federal Express Entry System.
The pool of contenders for Canada’s immigration programs is under the competent management of Canada’s Express Entry System. The three main economic immigration programs managed by this Express Entry System in Canada, include;
- The Federal Skilled Trades Class
- The Federal Skilled Worker Class,
- The Canadian Experience Class.
Additionally, 600 points are awarded towards the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score of all direct entry contenders with the provincial nomination. The six draws done this year recorded 1,931 invitations distributed by MPNP (Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program) through its skilled worker’s overseas stream. Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program is a segment of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program Initiative that allows all its regions and provinces to nominate an agreed number of candidates for the economic immigration program, organized to acquire permanent Canadian residency every year.
The first step to qualifying for a provincial nomination through skilled workers overseas stream from Manitoba is to have an EOI (Expression of Interest) profile with Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program. It is later scored with regards to the unique points grid held by the province.
