Are you interested in Canada immigration, via the widely preferred Provincial Nominee Programme (PNP) route? If yes, this news update is especially for you! The latest Manitoba Provincial Nominee Programme (MPNP) draw (the 19th) has reportedly been carried-out under the Expression of Interest (EOI) immigration structure even as a combined total of 609 aspirants have been sent a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA) of late--on July 29, this year to be precise.
The province--situated in central part of the country--proffers the LAAs, via two specific sub-classes of the Skilled Workers Category of the Provincial Nominee Programme (PNP). While as many as 155 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) were given to the aspirants via the Skilled Workers in Manitoba Sub-category, 454 LAAs were given, via the Skilled Workers Overseas Sub-class. At the time of the preceding draw--which occurred about a month back-- 551 candidates obtained an LAA.
The basis of the MPNP for Skilled Workers is the requirements of the province based recruiters/job-providers. The province chooses the globally trained and experienced employees who possess the skills required in the local labour market, to offer them nomination to obtain the prized Permanent Resident Visas (PRVs) in Canada to reside and do a job in Manitoba. Successful candidates initially obtain a provincial nomination certificate, post which they have the right to submit an application for permanent movement to the nation.
The available immigration choices could be particularly appealing to those who may lack the eligibility to shift to the Maple Leaf Country using the federal Express Entry immigration selection structure, since there is not much of a difference in the terms & conditions of eligibility.
For instance, the MPNP provides points for language skill comparable to the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4 even as this is a much lower threshold, vis-à-vis what is needed under the Federal Skilled Worker Class.

Under the specific sub-class of the MPNP, petitions are admitted from the skilled overseas manpower and global student graduates who are presently doing a job in the province, and have been given a permanent work by their recruiter/firm in the province. For a decision to be taken regarding their eligibility or otherwise, it is not necessary for the Skilled Workers in Manitoba to go through a points-based appraisal.

This particular MPNP sub-class is basically meant for the trained manpower which could be outside the nation but which may show a strong link not only to the province but its labour market. A points-based arrangement is utilized to assess aspirants according to some particular factors, like for instance, age, language skills, employment experience, education and adaptability.
Even as applicants could receive a good figure of points, thanks to having a link to the province, they could also be subtracted points under some 'risk assessment' issues that germinate from having links to other provinces of Canada.
