About Express Entry
Express Entry System is the anchor that analyzes and directs over the three immigration programs designed for the high skilled laborers needed by Canada. The names of the program are: Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class, and the Federal Skilled Worker Program.
Potential immigrant applicants who present a profile to the Express Entry framework are positioned dependent on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Focuses are granted for factors like age, work insight, schooling, and language abilities among others. Among these conditions whichever candidate scores the highest, is granted a gateway for permanent residence in Canada via the Express Entry draws that are held frequently. It is feasible to dodge the PNP cycle and get a PR invitation by directly applying via Express Entry. If nominated by a province the candidate receives an extra 600 points in the original CRS score.
Manitoba immigration programs
Manitoba’s immigration programs are looked after by the MPNP. The role of MPNP is to backup immigration documents of applying to the government authorities. Provinces of Canada do not possess the power of granting a PR status to any candidate, however, they can issue a provincial nomination that helps the application of a candidate to go through the immigration process and receive a permanent residency permit by the federal government.
For a candidate to take advantage of the provincial nomination provided by the province of Manitoba, he or she has to list their name under the list of Expression of Interest (EOI) alongside MPNP. The candidate will then be eligible to receive a LAA via Skilled Workers overseas streams and Skilled Workers in Manitoba.
After that, the candidates are then ranked out of 1,000 points on factors that includes- age, education, relatives in the province etc.
Manitoba then screens the skilled candidates who would be beneficial for the province to bridge the labor market gap generated in the province by Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas category.
International workers are supposed to exhibit their connections in the province of Manitoba. The connections could be family ties, relatives, past experience, or an invitation by any one of the province’s strategic recruitment steps.

To receive an invite under the Manitoba Skilled Worker Category, the candidate must have an employment offer that is full-time from a verified employer of the province itself.
