Find out if you are eligible for Canadian immigration
Express Entry candidates received 101 invitations (also known as Letters to Advice to Apply (LAAs)).
Express Entry is a management system that allows permanent residence applications for federal high-skilled programs, including the Federal Skilled Worker Program and the Canadian Experience Class.
You can skip the PNP and apply directly through Express Entry to receive a permanent residence invitation. However, a provincial nomination is a guarantee that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will invite your application for permanent residence in Canada. This 600-point award is not void.
After you have submitted your profile, your rank is based on the Comprehensive Ranking System, which takes into account factors such as your age, education and language skills.
Candidates with the highest scores are invited to apply for permanent residence via regular Express Entry draws.
The first step in applying for a Manitoba provincial nomination is to submit a profile to the Express Entry pool.
Programs for Manitoba immigrants
The MPNP supports federal immigration applications and manages Manitoba’s immigration programs. The Canadian provinces are not able to grant permanent residency status but can assist an applicant by issuing provincial nominations.
You must register with the MPNP an Expression of Interest if you wish to be considered for a Manitoba nomination. You will be eligible to receive a LAA through Skilled Workers in Manitoba or Skilled Workers Overseas.
The Manitoba ranks the candidates based on 1,000 points. This includes their human capital factors and connections to the province.
Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers in Overseas Categories are intended to help the province identify qualified candidates to meet its labour market requirements.
Candidates from overseas must show connections to Manitoba by way of family ties, experience in the province or invitations through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. To be eligible, you don’t need to live in Manitoba at the time that your application is received.
To be eligible for the Skilled Workers in Manitoba invitation, you must have a full-time job from a provincial employer.
If they are able to show that they have the skills and knowledge required for international employment, they may be invited under the International Education Stream.
