Provincial Nominee Program: Outlook for First Week of November

With less than two months left in 2021, there has been a sharp decline in provinces holding PNP draws. This week Manitoba and British Columbia were the only two provinces to hold draws. A combined total of 498 immigration candidates can now apply for a provincial nomination. 

421 PNP candidates receive invitations in Manitoba’s newest draw 

Nearly 10,000 invitations issued by the province since the beginning of 2021 

On November 1, 2021, the province of Manitoba held a new round of invitations. 

Candidates who are interested in the MPNP are required to create and register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the province. Their profiles are evaluated and scored based on human capital factors such as age, education, work experience etc. 

The highest ranked candidates who are eligible for the draw, are issued invitations. During this draw, a total 421 immigration candidates received an invitation to apply, called Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) for a provincial nomination from the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).

Draw results at a glance: 

Two of the three streams required a minimum EOI. The Education Stream was exempt. 

StreamsNumber of LAAs IssuedMin. Score Required
Skilled Workers in Manitoba350460
Skilled Workers Overseas 38713
International Education Stream33N/A
Total 421 

Of these invitations, 75 of them were issued to candidates with a valid profile in the federal government’s Express Entry pool.

Since the beginning of this year, Manitoba has been holding regular PNP draws and to date, this has resulted in the province issuing 9,571 invitations. 

77 candidates invited in B.C. Tech draw 

Over 10,000 immigration candidates have received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination from British Columbia 

B.C. held its regular bi-weekly Tech draw on November 2, 2021. 

The draw resulted in the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) issuing invitations to 77 eligible candidates. 

In order to qualify for this draw, candidates had to have met the requirements of one of B.C.’s Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration (SI) categories. They were selected from the Skilled Worker and International subcategories and had to meet a minimum provincial score of 75. 

Candidates who received an invitation will need to submit their documents and application within 30 days. 

If they successfully receive the provincial nomination, they will be awarded an automatic 600 extra points on their existing CRS score. This dramatic boost to their score is a near guarantee they will receive an invitation from IRCC to apply for permanent residency. 

Since the start of this year, IRCC has mainly been holding PNP specific and CEC specific draws as a way of dealing with the pandemic related travel restrictions and border closures. Chances are high the new year will follow a similar trend for at least a few months. 

Candidates who were selected in this draw, may get an invitation from IRCC early next year.
