Latest PNP Draw Updates Of BC And Manitoba And Saskatchewan

Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program MPNP issued 226 new invitations.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program MPNP issued 226 new invitations to apply for a nomination for Canadian permanent residence in a draw held March 26. Among those invited to apply were skilled workers, international student graduates and Express Entry candidates.

The MPNP is part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program and allows Manitoba to nominate a set number of economic immigration candidates each year through a variety of streams designed to address specific labour market needs in the province. The global health crisis has inevitably changed the international mobility and immigration landscape with the gradual closure of borders and sudden economic downturn. However, the federal government announced last week that foreigners who have already made a commitment to work, study or settle in Canada will be exempt from travel bans. These exemptions came into effect on March 26.

The March 26 MPNP draw invited 226 candidates from the MPNP’s Skilled Workers in Manitoba,  International Education and Skilled Workers Overseas streams.

Those invitations broke down as follows:

Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 168
International Education Stream: 20
Skilled Workers Overseas: 38

This positive development in Canadian immigration is complemented by the fact that many provinces continue to process immigration applications and hold regular draws even though special immigration measures are in place.

To be considered for a nomination for Canadian permanent residence from the MPNP, immigration candidates must first submit an Expression of Interest EOI and provide the required information on their education, work experience, skills in English or French and connections to Manitoba, among other details.

Eligible profiles are issued a score and entered into the relevant stream’s pool of candidates, and those with the highest scores are issued a Letter of Advice to Apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws.

Of the 226 Letters of Advice to Apply issued in this draw, 29 went to Express Entry candidates. Candidates with a provincial nomination will receive an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System  points and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent Federal Express Entry draw.

The lowest score drawn in the March 26 draw was 496 for Skilled Workers in Manitoba and 714 for Skilled Workers Overseas candidates.


Saskatchewan invites 205 immigration candidates to apply for PNP :

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program SINP issued the invitations on March 26. Candidates did not need a job offer to be selected, however, they needed one year of work experience in an eligible occupation related to their field of study.

BC, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan have all held provincial nominee program draws since Canada announced its special coronavirus immigration measures on March 16. These draws are in addition to the March 18 federal Express Entry draw that only selected provincial nominees.

For Saskatchewan’s draw under the Occupations In-Demand subcategory invited candidates had Educational Credential Assessments, and they either had a close family member in Saskatchewan or studied at a postsecondary institution in the province. Saskatchewan’s EOI system allows the province to select immigration candidates that have the potential to thrive in the prairie province. Interested candidates must create an EOI profile and will be assessed on how their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province demonstrate their capacity to settle into life in Saskatchewan.

The SINP has invited 1124 Occupations In-Demand candidates so far this year. Adding the 845 candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination through the Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category, that total goes up to 1969.

B.C. issues 311 invitations to apply for PNP in latest draw :

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program BC PNP invited candidates under two immigration categories: Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration.
British Columbia held a provincial nominee program draw on March 30, inviting 311 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Candian permanent residence.

Express Entry is Canada’s main pathway for skilled immigrants who want to obtain Canadian permanent residence.

Express Entry manages applications for three of Canada’s main economic class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates who are eligible for Express Entry are given a Comprehensive Ranking System CRS score based on human capital factors such as work experience, education, official language.

The Skills Immigration Category is for skilled and semi-skilled workers whose occupations are in high demand in the province. Both categories require candidates to register using B.C.’s Skills Immigration Registration System SIRS, which provides eligible candidates with a score based on factors such as their offer of employment, location in B.C., education, language ability, and wage.

The minimum score requirements were between 102 and 105 in the latest selection round.
