In case the invited candidates get Manitoba’s provincial nomination they will be awarded 600 points which will be added to their basic score. This is how it happens to candidates nominated by any Canadian province. It’s a feature provided by any PNP linked to the Express Entry. The provincially nominated candidates stand an almost sure chance of receiving an ITA for Canada PR.
