In a fairly crucial development--and in the latest draw, carried out under the Expression of Interest (EOI) immigration system--a combined total of 714 aspirants, for overseas movement to Canada, have reportedly been given a Letter of Advice to Apply, via the popular and the widely used the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Programme (MPNP). The draw occurred on August 24, 2016.
This Canadian province, situated in the central part of the country, issues the LAAs, via two sub-classes. Reportedly, 176 IAAs were given under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba sub-category, while 538 LAAs were proffered via the Skilled Workers Overseas sub-class.
Through the MPNP's EOI Points Arrangement, the province chooses aspirants under a ranking arrangement. In this draw, while there was a requirement of 592 points by Skilled Workers in Manitoba to be given an LAA, Skilled Workers Overseas applicants needed 543 points.
The earlier draw, which occurred on July 29, witnessed 609 aspirants being given an LAA.
The MPNP for the Skilled Workers is based on the specific requirements of the recruiters/firms based in Manitoba. The province chooses the globally trained and experienced manpower which has the necessary skills required in the local labour market.
And it gives them nomination, to obtain the valued Permanent Resident Visas (PRVs), to reside and do a job in the province. Those, who emerge successful, initially get a Manitoba provincial nomination certificate, post which they can submit an application for permanent movement to the Maple Leaf Country.
These immigration choices could be predominantly appealing to those who may not be suitably qualified to move to the destination, via the federal Express Entry immigration selection structure, with the reason being the eligibility conditions are pretty tough.
For instance, the MPNP gives points for language ability comparable to the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4 to the aspirants in some particular professions, a much lower threshold, vis-à-vis what is needed under the Canada Federal Skilled Worker Class.
MPNP Skilled Workers in Manitoba
Under this specific sub-class of the MPNP, petitions are admitted from the trained workers from abroad and global student graduates, who are presently engaged in the province, and have been provided with a permanent job by their recruiter/firm there in. Skilled Workers in Manitoba do not have to face a points-based assessment so that a decision could be reached on their eligibility.
MPNP Skilled Workers Overseas
This particular MPNP sub-class is basically for the qualified trained labor force which could be outside the Maple Leaf Country but who can show a strong link to the Manitoba and its labour market. A points-based structure is employed to review aspirants according to factors, like age, language skills, employment experience, education and adaptability.
Even as aspirants could get a noteworthy figure of points thanks to having a link to the province, they could also be subtracted points under some 'risk assessment' issues that originate from having links to other provinces of Canada.
