Nova Scotia And Manitoba Latest Draw Updates Dec 2019


Latest Nova Scotia labour market priorities stream draw have been released

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program invited 144 Express Entry candidates who work in advertising, marketing or public relations whose NOC is 1123. 

Selected candidates need to have provided letters of reference from employers to demonstrate that they have two or more years of full-time or equivalent part-time experience in advertising, marketing or public relations within the five years preceding the application.

They also needed to have selected English as their first official language and have a Canadian Language Benchmark CLB score of 9 or higher in all language skills.

They also needed to have a master’s degree, and provide proof of education with their application such as an Educational Credential Assessment ECA report issued by an institution designated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

Those who were selected have a chance to receive a provincial nomination from Nova Scotia. Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination obtain an additional 600 points toward their CRS score, effectively guaranteeing an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program has now issued 7,545 invitations in 2019

Nearly 200 international graduates from Manitoba and skilled workers who submitted an Expression of Interest profile to the province received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program MPNP issued 183 invitations on December 19.

Among the 183 invitations issued in the latest Manitoba draw, 16 were issued to candidates who had a profile in the Express Entry pool.

The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main Economic-Class immigration categories: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

To be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination from Manitoba through both the Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas categories, candidates must register an Expression of Interest with the MPNP.

An EOI is an online profile that is ranked out of a score of 1,000. Points are awarded for a candidate’s education, work experience, connections to Manitoba and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.

In the latest draw, the lowest-ranked candidate invited under the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream had a score of 542. The lowest-ranked candidate invited from the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream had a score of 559.

The 17 candidates invited through the Skilled Worker Overseas Stream were invited directly by the MPNP under a Strategic Recruitment Initiative. Candidates invited through the Skilled Worker in Manitoba Category must be working in Manitoba and have a full-time, permanent job offer from their employer, among other criteria.

Manitoba graduates with certain in-demand skills may be invited under the International Education Stream. This stream includes three sub-categories:

  1. Career Employment Pathway
  2. Graduate Internship Pathway
  3. Student Entrepreneur Pathway
