In a significant development for immigration hopefuls, the province of Manitoba announced its latest Provincial Nominee Draw on August 10th, 2023. This draw, a pivotal event for individuals aspiring to obtain permanent residency in Canada, witnessed the issuance of a total of 615 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) distributed across three distinct categories of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
The Manitoba PNP has been a favored pathway for skilled workers, entrepreneurs, and other eligible individuals seeking to make Canada their permanent home. The draw on July 10th reaffirmed the province’s commitment to attracting diverse and talented individuals to contribute to its economy and society.
Of the total 615 LAAs issued in the recent draw, a specific allocation of 43 LAAs was reserved for candidates who provided a valid Express Entry profile number and a job seeker validation code. This allocation underscores Manitoba’s engagement with the federal Express Entry system, aimed at aligning provincial nominee selections with the needs of the Canadian labor market.
Profiles proving their current employment opportunities in Manitoba in professions deemed with high labor requirements on the basis of various factors are:
The occupations under the following National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2021 major and sub-major groups were considered in this draw:
The profiles that were not considered for an LAA in the occupation-specific category of the draw were considered here:
Applicants that proved and showed their eligibility for the International Education Stream.
Applicants that proved and showed being directly invited by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative.
Express Entry candidates who received LAAs through this draw will now have the opportunity to apply for a provincial nomination, potentially gaining a significant advantage in their pursuit of permanent residency in Canada. Achieving provincial nomination can result in additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points, effectively enhancing a candidate’s position in the federal Express Entry pool and thereby increasing their chances of receiving an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residency.
The three distinct categories under which LAAs were distributed in the August 10th draw reflect Manitoba’s strategic approach to fulfilling its labor market and economic requirements. These categories include skilled workers in Manitoba, international education stream candidates, and candidates under the strategic recruitment initiative.
It is worth noting that the Manitoba PNP has consistently played a pivotal role in facilitating the immigration process for individuals with the skills and potential to contribute positively to the province’s growth. The program’s emphasis on supporting various pathways, such as skilled labor and entrepreneurship, underscores Manitoba’s open and inclusive approach to immigration.
Aspiring immigrants who received LAAs in the August 10th draw are now presented with a valuable opportunity to take concrete steps toward realizing their Canadian dream. The province’s commitment to facilitating the integration of skilled individuals into its social fabric reflects its vision for a prosperous and diverse future.
With the issuance of these 615 LAAs, Manitoba Province has once again demonstrated its dedication to shaping a thriving and multicultural community, making it an attractive destination for individuals seeking to make Canada their forever home.
