The Canadian province of Manitoba held another provincial draw on March 25 resulting in the issuance of 335 invitations to apply for provincial nominations.
All the invited Canadian Immigration candidates are one step closer to obtain permanent residency from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Following the previous trends, Manitoba invited hopeful immigrants to apply through one of the following three Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams: Skilled Workers in Manitoba, International Education Stream, and Skilled Workers Overseas.
Here are the results from the latest draw:
- Skilled Workers in Manitoba— 285 invitations with a minimum EOI score of 423;
- Skilled Workers Overseas— 9 invitations with a minimum EOI score of 711; and
- International Education Stream— 41 invitations with no EOI score requirement.
- Additionally, about 49 invitations went to Express Entry candidates.
Manitoba has so far invited nearly 1,627 candidates in 2021 to apply for provincial nominations. With an annual target of about 80,000 invitations across all PNPs, the time is ripe to start your Canadian immigration process.
Qualify For Upcoming Manitoba PNP Draws
The provincial government in agreement with the federal government manages the immigration of foreign talent into the province through the MPNP. Although Canadian provinces do not have the authority to issue permanent residency status, they can help the applicant by issuing provincial nominations.
Interested applicants are required to register their Expression of Interest (EOI) with the province. Further, the registered profile is evaluated and ranked out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, as well as their connections to the province.
This will potentially qualify them for receiving a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA), other invitations, through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
In order to be considered under the Skilled Workers Overseas stream, candidates must demonstrate their connections to Manitoba such as close family ties, previous experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.
The major requirement for Skilled Worker in the Manitoba stream is a full-time job offer from any employer situated in the province.
International students who graduated from any institute in Manitoba can apply for provincial nomination under MPNP’s International Education Stream.

Express Entry is a direct entry program to obtain permanent residence without the need for provincial nominations. However, having a successful provincial nomination will guarantee an invitation to apply for Canada PR by virtue of 600 additional CRS points.
