|Stream||Sub-Stream||Letters of Advice to Apply||Score of Lowest Ranked Candidate|
|1) Skilled Workers in Manitoba||NOC major group 94 and major group 95||249||605|
|2) International Education Stream||47||–|
|3) Skilled Workers Overseas||Strategic Recruitment Initiative||40||708|
The labourers in processing, manufacturing and utilities targeted in this draw are categorized as TEER five occupations.
Through the SWM stream, Manitoba also sent out 279 LAAs to candidates with a minimum score of 647 in a draw which did not target specific occupations.
The SWM is based on the specific needs of Manitoba employers and tries to select foreign-trained workers with the required skills for permanent residence. The stream prioritizes candidates with a strong attachment to Manitoba, with two pathways to Manitoba immigration.
Manitoba sends out 40 LAAs to SWO stream candidates
Through the International Education Stream (IES), the province sent out 47 LAAs.
The IES, which has three pathways, is dedicated to international graduates from Manitoba colleges and universities. Under it, candidates are no longer required to work for six months in their field before applying for an MPNP nomination.
And through its Skilled Worker Overseas stream, Manitoba sent out a further 40 LAAs to candidates with a minimum score of 708.
“Of the 615 Letters of Advice to Apply issued in this draw, 43 were issued to candidates who declared a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code,” noted the province on its website.
The SWO includes both a dedicated Canada Express Entry pathway and a direct provincial pathway.
It is aimed at international skilled workers with skills and training in Manitoba’s in-demand occupations. Priority is given to applicants and spouses with close family connections, plus the language proficiency, training and experience to find jobs quickly.
