The Manitoban province recently invited 207 immigration candidates to apply for a nomination in its latest draw. This is the province’s fourth draw in 2021. The candidates invited were from the following three streams:
- Skilled Workers in Manitoba
- Skilled Workers Overseas
- International Education Stream
The minimum requirements set for Express of Interest (EOI) ranking points and Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) were:
- 28 LAAs for International Education Stream.
- 158 LAAs and 457 minimum score for Skilled Workers in Manitoba.
- 21 LAAs and 698 minimum score for Skilled Workers Overseas.
Only 5 LLAs went to Express Entry candidates in this draw.
Express Entry is a points-based regulatory system that helps Canada to manage applications for skilled workers.
Applicants can either apply for a Canadian PR directly through Express Entry or enter the Express Entry pool and receive a provincial nomination.
To be eligible for Express Entry, you have to meet basic requirements as per one of the three Express Entry programs. You are then ranked based on a CRS score.
The candidates with the highest score receive an invitation to apply (ITA).
You can gain an additional 600 points if you receive a nomination from a province like Manitoba.
