The Canadian province of Manitoba invited 243 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination in latest immigration draw held on April 8.

Candidates received invitations, also known as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) through three prominent streams of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) – Skilled Workers in Manitoba, Skilled Workers Overseas and International Education Streams.

DISTRIBUTION OF INVITATIONS

Stream Total LAAs issued Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirement
Skilled Workers in Manitoba 208 456
Skilled Workers Overseas 14 708
International Education Stream 21 No EOI score requirement

 

Out of total 243 Invitations issued, 15 went to Express Entry candidates.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) is one of the most popular Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). It allows Manitoba to nominate foreign workers and international graduates of its post-secondary institutions for Canadian permanent residency through its three popular immigration pathways.

In order to apply under both the Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories, applicants need to first register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the MPNP.

These EOI profiles are scored on the Manitoba points’ grid out of a total score of 1,000 based on their human capital characteristics including their English or French language skills, work experience, education, Manitoba connections, and other factors.

Candidates with the highest scores are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws conducted by the MPNP.

Express Entry Candidates who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in subsequent Express Entry Draw.

With this draw, Manitoba has now issued 1,870 LAAs for a provincial nomination to immigration candidates so far in 2021.

CRS dropped 17 points to 432 in new CEC- specific Express Entry Draw on April 1 Total 5000 candidates received ITAs for Canadian PR

EXPRESS ENTRY DRAW #181: APRIL 1, 2021

Canada invited another 5000 Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates to apply for Permanent Residency in latest Express Entry Draw on April 1.

The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score requirement for this draw was 432, which is a reduction of 17 points than the previous CEC-specific draw held on March 18. This is also the third-lowest CRS cut-off for a CEC draw conducted by Canada during the Coronavirus pandemic.

As per the tie-break rule applied by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), only those CEC candidates with minimum score of 432, who had submitted their Express Entry profile before February 16, 2021 at 09:51:22 UTC, received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in this draw.

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is an immigration category for foreign workers who have at least one year of full-time (or an equivalent in part-time) skilled, professional or technical work experience in Canada within the last three years and who wish to become permanent residents.

Canadian Experience Class applications are processed through the Express Entry system. Eligible candidates need to first create an online Express Entry profile and receive an ITA before they can make an application for permanent residency.

CEC is an ideal route to Canadian permanent residency for temporary foreign workers. Having obtained Canadian work experience, these individuals get a “head start” against other candidates in the Express Entry pool as it is a highly-valued factor under the CRS.

It is a popular option for international students as it offers them the fastest and most simple path to achieving permanent residence after completing a program or course of study at a Canadian educational institution and acquiring required work experience.

In order to meet its ambitious target of welcoming 401,000 economic class immigrants in 2021 amid travel restrictions, IRCC has been holding CEC and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)-specific draws since these candidates are most likely already in Canada.

The total number of invitations issued by IRCC so far this year is already 49,124, which is almost half of its target of new Express Entry admissions in 2021.

284 PNP candidates received invitations to apply for Canada PR in new Express Entry Draw

EXPRESS ENTRY DRAW #180: March 31, 2021

Canada invited 284 Express Entry candidates with provincial nominations to apply for permanent residency in new immigration draw held on March 31, 2021.

The draw was restricted to candidates from Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) and invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates who had a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 778.

Immigration candidates, who obtain a nomination from an Express Entry-aligned PNP, automatically receive 600 points toward their overall CRS score.  This is the reason that CRS cut-off score for this invitation round was little high as compared to previous draws.

The Express Entry system is Canada’s primary source of skilled foreign workers. It manages the profiles of candidates under three Federal High Skilled economic class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Eligible candidates enter the Express Entry pool, where they are issued a CRS score based on their age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.

A set number of highest-ranked candidates are then invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws from the pool.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) applied the tie-breaking rule and the time-stamp used was March 16, 2021 at 16:09:32 UTC. This means the PNP candidates who had a CRS score of 778 or more and had submitted their Express Entry profile before this time and date, received an invitation in this draw.

Canada continues to hold Express Entry draws targeting candidates in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or those who had successfully applied and received a nomination through a PNP.

If go with the recent trends, there are chances that IRCC might hold an Express Entry round of invitations for CEC candidates within a day or two.
