Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program

In 2019, The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program issued just about 4, 000 invitations using the various streams. There were recent draws in the Skilled Workers in Manitoba, the International Education Stream as well as in the Skilled Workers Overseas Stream, which issued 299 invitations on 25th April 2019. This adds crucial skills in the province and also addresses the increasing shortages in the Canadian labor market.

The federal government has a plan of welcoming a million immigrants in the workforce during the future three years. It is taking steps to ensure that the vacancies in the top demand occupations are filled up when there are no local persons for filling them. Workers get the high quality of life working in a similar profession which they did abroad. Moreover, there is a high value on these occupations in the Canadian economy.

The Provincial Nominee Program

Manitoba Immigration is issuing invitations to the in-demand workers. The PNP addresses specific shortages in the labor market in specific provinces. There is a participation of 11 provinces and territories among the 13 provinces in the program. There are unique streams on offer, focusing on ample opportunities for unskilled, as well as semi-skilled/skilled workers who meet the eligibility norms for filling the vacancies. Many immigrants select Manitoba for settling because it has a strong economy and a pleasant climate.

Details of the Draw

As a result of the recent draw, held on 25th April, 299 invitations were issued using many Manitoba Immigration streams. This province has an EOI system where applicants have to submit the interest to an immigration body. It leads to creating an application which gets a score based on specific criteria. Furthermore, the top-scoring applicants get a Letter of Advice to seek permanent residence.
