Keeping Canada immigration going, Manitoba conducted its provincial nomination draw on April 23, 2020. In the event, 132 candidates were invited to apply for provincial nomination. Their provincial nomination will come with Permanent Residence. The candidates were all selected from Manitoba’s Expression of Interest (EOI) pool. It included 7 Express Entry candidates too.
The draw on April 23 issued invitations to candidates in the streams of
- Skilled Workers Overseas
- Manitoba’s Skilled Workers in Manitoba
- International Education
In these categories, 1,808 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAA) has been sent to immigration candidates as yet in 2020. The Manitoba draw started in April 2014. The latest draw was the 88th one since then.
Express Entry stream
Express Entry is the most identified stream in immigration Canada. The candidates who come from this stream are given ranks according to a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The score is given based on criteria like education, age, work experience, and language skills.
Candidates who score the highest will get invitations for permanent residence in Canada. With a provincial nomination, a candidate will add 600 points to his/her original CRS score. That will give an effective guarantee to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Express Entry candidates who got a provincial nomination from Manitoba via this draw had a valid Express Entry ID and a job seeker validation code.
