SUMMARY OF ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL EXPRESS ENTRY PNP STREAMS

Discussion in 'Express Entry / Expression of Interest' started by joelmath, Jul 2, 2016.

  1. Hi all,

    Isn't it a big problem for beginners to go through all the EE PNP streams and understand the eligibility requirements? The amount of info that one needs to go through is overwhelming. In this post I have summarized the eligibility requirements for all EE specific PNP streams. So hopefully, this post will make it a tad bit easier for everyone to research on relevant PNP streams.


    [size=10pt][size=15pt]What is "Express Entry Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)"?[/size][/size]

    Majority of provinces in Canada are able to nominate immigrants through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Since January 1, 2015, many provinces have joined Express Entry system to manage certain quota of their overall intake of immigrants, thus creating specific streams that are more commonly referred to as Express Entry Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP). These immigrants must have the skills, education and work experience that suit the requirements of relevant provinces. In addition, the candidates selected through Express Entry Provincial Nominee Programs must show intent to reside in the province that has nominated them. A nomination from one of the provinces under Express Entry Provincial Nominee Programs adds 600 additional points to your overall CRS and in most cases will secure you an ITA in the next draw.

    Each province has its own eligibility requirements, nomination guidelines, application procedure, application processing time, quota for their Express Entry Provincial Nominee Programs. One thing that beginners tend to commonly miss out is to make sure that they meet both EE as well as PNP requirements.


    [size=10pt][size=15pt]Where can I find more information on Express Entry Provincial Nominee Programs?[/size][/size]

    This post only has a summary of requirements meant for a quick reference. Direct links to respective EE streams have been provided so if you find a relevant PNP then you can proceed with further research on province website.


    [size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=15pt]Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP)[/size][/size][/size][/size]

    Alberta does not have any dedicated streams under Express Entry category. There are non- Express Entry streams but processing times for those are comparatively higher. If you wish to immigrate to Alberta using non-Express Entry PNP stream then Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) may be an option for you. There are 3 sub-streams under AINP with different eligibility criteria:

    Employer Driven Stream
    Strategic Recruitment Stream
    Self-Employed Farmer Stream

    [size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=15pt]Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)[/size][/size][/size][/size]

    Manitoba has 3 streams under its PNP programs.

    There is no “Express Entry only” stream for Manitoba but applicants interested in Manitoba can apply under MPNP for Skilled Workers stream. From the overall inventory of MPNP applicants, Manitoba will decide who gets Nomination under Express Entry and who gets nomination under regular Manitoba Provincial Nomination stream. There isn’t too much clarity provided on their selection process for Express Entry other than the fact that you must be eligible under one of the express entry programs as well i.e FSW, CEC, FSTP.

    Also, if applying through MPNP, you must create your Express Entry Profile after you have been instructed to do so by the province.

    “I have an active application with the MPNP and would like to use Express Entry. What should I do?

    At this stage, only those MPNP applicants directly contacted by the MPNP and advised to do so should submit an Express Entry profile as the MPNP will otherwise not be able to assist you with your Express Entry submission. All applicants should follow the steps outlined in their Letter of Approval from the MPNP when applying for permanent residence.”

    “I have not applied to the MPNP, but would like to be nominated by Manitoba through Express Entry. What should I do?

    At this time, the MPNP can only assist candidates who have already submitted a full application to the MPNP and only AFTER their application has been assessed by Manitoba.”

    There are two pathways to Manitoba under Skilled Workers stream

    Skilled Workers in Manitoba

    Applications are accepted from qualified temporary foreign workers and international student graduates who are currently working in Manitoba and have been offered a permanent job with their Manitoba employer.

    Find details here : http://www.immigratemanitoba.com/mpnp-for-skilled-workers/eligibility/eligibility-swm/

    Skilled Workers Overseas

    Applications are accepted from qualified skilled workers who can demonstrate a strong connection to the province through family or friends, past education or employment, or by invitation of the MPNP, and be assessed sufficient points for five eligibility factors – age, English proficiency, work experience, education and adaptability.

    In addition to demonstrating a strong connection to Manitoba, every candidate who wants to be considered under the Skilled Worker Overseas stream must score at least 60 points based on five factors in order to be eligible. If you do not have a connection to Manitoba, you are not eligible under this stream, regardless of your points total.

    Find details on connection to Manitoba, documents required and Manitoba points system here: http://www.immigratemanitoba.com/mpnp-for-skilled-workers/eligibility/eligibility-swo/

    If you meet the eligibility requirements MPNP is a three-step process

    STEP 1 : Submit an Expression of Interest : http://www.immigratemanitoba.com/mpnp-for-skilled-workers/expression-of-interest/

    EOIs are ranked against others in the pool of submitted EOIs. On a regular basis, the MPNP conducts draws from this pool and invites the highest-scoring candidates to submit full applications. The draws may exclude certain occupations or profiles. Details on exclusions are provided on the Immigratemanitoba.com website at the time of the draw.

    http://www.immigratemanitoba.com/2015/04/23/expression-of-interest-frequently-asked-questions/


    STEP 2 : The highest-scoring qualified candidates with a connection to Manitoba are invited to submit an MPNP application

    Ranking system breakdown here : http://www.immigratemanitoba.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/MPNPRankingPoints.pdf

    STEP 3 : Following a thorough assessment, the MPNP nominates successful candidates to make a separate application to the Government of Canada for permanent resident visas for you and your family.
