Manitoba’s Latest Provincial Nominee Draw

Published date: 15th January 2022

Manitoba held their first PNP draw of 2022 on 13th January. Results are given below.

The province of Manitoba issued Invitations to Apply to candidates under various categories available under their provincial nominee program. With their first draw of the year held on 13th January the applications were accepted under three streams namely, Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas and International Education Stream. The Comprehensive System Ranking score for this draw was different for each category but the last category especially, had no minimum CRS score cutoff.

Not only this, many candidates were invited under Manitoba’s new Strategic Recruitment Initiative where they received letter to apply for permanent residency with the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Some candidates were also issued invitations who had a complete profile submitted under the Canadian Express Entry System and fulfilled the remaining requirements of the province.

Skilled Workers in Manitoba

  • ITAs Issued: 357
  • Minimum CRS score: 459

Skilled Workers Overseas:

  • ITAs Issued: 53
  • Minimum CRS score: 711

International Education Stream

  • ITAs Issued: 33
  • No minimum CRS score

A provincial nomination directly credits you 600 points on the Comprehensive Ranking System that is half of the total score of 1200 needed to get an Invitation to Apply. Although applying directly for permanent residency in Canada is the wiser decision, still having a provincial nomination always seems as a great backup plan.
