The Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Alberta recently released the information of two Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws held in the past two weeks.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) released information on the results of the latest draw held on October 7, in which it invited 426 candidates under the three PNP programs:
- 350 invitations under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba program with a minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score of 446 points,
- 21 invitations under the Skilled Workers Overseas program with a minimum EOI score of 729 points and
- 55 invitations under the International Education Stream without any EOI score requirement.
Among the total 426 candidates invited, 84 candidates had applied through the federal Express Entry’s PNP program and would receive 600 additional points in their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
The International Education Stream is only for those international students who have completed their studies from Manitoba and proved that they have the skills required.
The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) has released details on a PNP draw held on September 30, inviting 275 Express Entry PNP candidates with a minimum score of 300 points to apply for a provincial nomination.
Including this draw, the province has held four Express Entry draws last month, inviting a total of 1,610 candidates with a minimum score of at least 300 points in all rounds.
After resuming its invitation rounds in January this year, the AINP has invited 5,617 candidates in 2021. After getting the nomination certificate, the candidates get 600 additional points in their CRS score, guaranteeing an invite for PR.
