Canada’s PNP Results from April 2024



PNP Program Updates and News

The PNP’s Changing Role In Economic Immigration

Canada’s Federal Express Entry invitations will mostly go towards category-based rounds in 2024, according to an IRCC internal memo. However, despite the reduced volume of invitations going to Federal Skilled Workers, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Trades programs, we are still seeing general Express Entry rounds every two weeks. So, how is that possible? It’s likely the PNPs that are linked to Express Entry play a role in this trend. 

It’s also likely that more candidates who may not receive an Express Entry invitation this year will turn to Provincial Nominee Programs to become permanent residents in Canada. Canada’s PNP has been attracting a higher proportion of economic immigrants in recent years, and the trend towards category-based Express Entry draws will likely result in PNP playing an increasingly important role in Canadian immigration for those falling outside of the categories that Canada is targeting. 


Manitoba To Prioritize Processing Expired and Expiring Work Permits

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program will prioritize assessments of submitted MPNP applications with work permits that have expired or will expire in the next 45 days. MPNP applicants who fall into this category should let the MPNP know by completing the Skilled Worker Webform.

Manitoba and Alberta To End Temporary Measures For Ukrainian Nationals 

The temporary measures known as the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) ended on March 31, 2024. This means that March 31 was the last day for Ukrainians and their family members to enter Canada under the CUAET measures or apply for temporary residence in Canada under the special measures. 

As a result, Canadian provinces that were holding special PNP draws are now announcing the conclusion of those draws. Alberta and Manitoba each announced the end of Ukraine draws in April.
