The Manitoba Immigration Categories
Manitoba organizes its provincial immigration nominations to attract foreign workers who can enable the province to meet its job-market needs. Hence, the Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Worker in Manitoba streams provide effective immigration channels that bring in foreign talent that eventually supports the provincial economy and social setting.
Candidates living in foreign countries need to establish ties to the province. A person can prove that they have a family or friend(s) in the region, show that they previously worked in Manitoba, or have received an LAA from the province’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives for immigration.
Candidate’s need not be physically present during the nomination process. Even so, applicants under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream must satisfy specific requirements. For instance, they must have a permanent job offer from a company or any other licensed employer in Manitoba.
International students who graduate from a higher learning institution in Manitoba can receive an LAA under the International Education Stream if their skills are in high demand.
Express Entry Immigration Program in Manitoba
Express Entry is a federal immigration stream that features candidates under three major categories:
1. Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
2. Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
3. Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
All Express Entry candidates are ranked based on a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). They must get a minimum CRS score based on several human capital factors that include age, work experience, language proficiency, education, and links to Canada.
The 15 Express Candidates in Manitoba who score highly in their CRSs get an additional 600 points, which bolsters their chances of getting Invitations to Apply (ITAs) and getting the nod to partake in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
