Manitoba PNP streams

On June 21, 2024, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) held its latest invitation round, #221, through Manitoba PNP streams marking a significant milestone in the province’s immigration efforts. This round saw the issuance of 163 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) to candidates across two primary streams: the Skilled Workers Overseas (SWO) stream and the International Education Stream (IES).

Skilled Workers Overseas Stream

The Skilled Workers Overseas stream continues to be a vital pathway for international candidates aspiring to make Manitoba their new home. In this latest round, MPNP issued 52 LAAs to candidates under the Strategic Recruitment Initiative. To qualify for an invitation, candidates in this category needed a minimum score of 721 points. This threshold underscores the competitive nature of the program, ensuring that Manitoba attracts highly skilled individuals who can contribute significantly to the province’s economic growth.

International Education Stream

The International Education Stream is designed to retain international graduates who have studied in Manitoba and are now looking to establish their careers in the province. In this invitation round, 111 candidates received LAAs, highlighting Manitoba’s commitment to retaining talented individuals educated within its borders. This stream is crucial for addressing the province’s labor market needs and supporting the integration of skilled graduates into the local workforce.

Express Entry Candidates

Out of the 163 LAAs issued, 31 were extended to candidates with profiles in the Express Entry system. This federal immigration system is renowned for its efficiency in processing applications for permanent residency. By selecting Express Entry candidates, Manitoba leverages the streamlined federal process to expedite the arrival of skilled workers who are ready to contribute to the province’s economy.

2024: A Year of Robust Invitations

The year 2024 has been prolific for the MPNP, with a total of 4,658 candidates invited to apply for provincial nomination. Notably, 639 of these invitations were extended to Express Entry candidates, reflecting Manitoba’s strategic use of this federal immigration tool to bolster its workforce.

Manitoba’s latest MPNP invitation round underscores the province’s ongoing commitment to attracting and retaining skilled talent. With a robust immigration strategy that includes streams for both international graduates and skilled workers overseas, Manitoba is well-positioned to address its labor market needs and foster economic growth. The inclusion of Express Entry candidates further enhances the program’s efficiency, ensuring that Manitoba remains a top destination for immigrants seeking new opportunities in Canada.
