Manitoba draw issues 347 invitations to immigration candidates
September 12, 2019, a fresh draw by the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program encouraged 347 skilled worker applicants to apply for a Canadian permanent residence nomination.
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) enables Manitoba province to nominate Canadian permanent residence applicants for economic-class immigration.
The invitations, known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs), were awarded through three streams of immigration from MPNP: Manitoba’s skilled workers, Overseas skilled workers, and international education.
Draw #72 – September 12, 2019
SKILLED WORKERS IN MANITOBA
- Number of Letters of Advice to Apply issued: 254

INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION STREAM
- Number of Letters of Advice to Apply issued: 40
SKILLED WORKERS OVERSEAS
- Number of Letters of Advice to Apply issued: 53 who were invited directly by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative
- Ranking score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 706
Of the 347 ITA issued in this draw, 45 were issued to candidates who declared a valid Express Entry ID and job seeker validation code.
Express Entry applicants with a provincial nomination receive an extra 600 points to their rating score, which efficiently ensures the Government of Canada’s invitation to apply for permanent residence.
Completing an Interest Expression is the first step for most sub-streams of MPNP qualified workers. An EOI needs applicants to enter, among other details, data about their education, work experience, English or French skills and links to Manitoba, and award a response-based rating. Candidates with the greatest results are invited by frequent Manitoba draws.
Manitoba has now issued a total of 5,810 invitations so far this year in 16 EOI draws.

Ottawa: Reducing the number of immigrants admitted to Quebec prolongs the processing time
The government of Canada responded to a number of immigration lawyers who complained about the length of time it takes to process immigration applications for Quebec clients. IRCC attributed the reason to the decision of the Quebec government to reduce the number of migrants admitted to it and explained in a letter to Radio Canada that the deadlines could be reviewed. “Since the number of applications destined for Quebec has been reduced in accordance with the Quebec Immigration Levels Plan for 2019, this has affected the waiting list of IRCC’s applications and is expected to lengthen the processing times for these applications,” wrote Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada spokesman Remi Lariviere. On the other hand, immigration lawyers pointed out that this is the first time that the IRCC refers to the Quebec government’s decision to reduce the number of immigrants it receives annually.
