Refused MPNP application

One of my blog readers asked for remedy to her refused Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) which she filed a couple of years ago. Her application was refused because she wasn't given points for adaptability factor.

Here's the reason provided by Manitoba Immigrations:

Application Guidelines clearly state (page 19 of the Application Kit) that Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) may refuse an application if the Program Officer is not satisfied that the applicant has demonstrated sufficient settlement supports from close relatives, distant relatives or friends with clearly established ties to the province and to the applicant. In your case, you were unable to establish ties to Manitoba are stronger than the ties to have to another Province in Canada where your brother resides. You have therefore been unable to demonstrate your intention to establish in Canada.

The applicant may make an appeal for review within 60 days. However, this would really be a tough case.
