Manitoba had the first PNP and in many ways, pioneered this category of Canadian immigration. Although MPNP doesn’t have the same volume of invitations to send out like Ontario or British Columbia, MPNP offers applicants with connections to the province a route to permanent status.
Manitoba uses the term Letters of Advice to Apply or (LAAs) when inviting candidates to their program. LAAs are invitations for candidates to apply for a provincial nomination through MPNP. Following successful completion of the MPNP application, candidates can use that nomination to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
