Express Entry System
Express Entry is Canada’s exclusive immigration application operating management system for three federal high-skilled immigration programs:
- The Canadian Experience Class,
- The Federal Skilled Worker Program,
- The Federal Skilled Trades Program.
It’s for the immigration candidates who wish to immigrate to Canada and aim to submit a profile to the Express Entry system where they are ranked based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
CRS points are awarded over the factors like age, work experience, education, and language skills among others. The highest-scoring candidates receive invitations to apply for permanent residence through regular Express Entry draws.
If in case you have applied & receives a PNP nomination but you don’t want it so it is possible to skip the PNP process and receive a permanent residence invitation by directly applying through Express Entry. However, a provincial nomination means an automatic 600 CRS points, which effectively guarantees candidates will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
Manitoba Immigration Programs
One of the Canada’s very famous and popular provinces is Manitoba. It manages its immigration programs through the Manitoba Provincial Nomination Program (MPNP), which supports immigration applications to the federal government. Canadian provinces do not have the ability to give out permanent residency status, but they can help an application along by issuing provincial nominations.
If you want to benefit from a nomination from Manitoba, you need to register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP. This puts you in a position to receive an LAA through the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.
Manitoba then ranks candidates out of 1,000 points for their human capital factors, as well as their connections to the province.
The Skilled Workers Overseas Category and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories are designed to allow the province to identify candidates who meet its labour market needs.
Candidates overseas need to demonstrate connections to Manitoba through the likes of close family ties, previous experience in the province, or an invitation through one of Manitoba’s Strategic Recruitment Initiatives. You do not need to be living in Manitoba at the time of your application to be eligible.
