What is the Skilled Workers Overseas stream?

If you want to be considered for the Skilled Worker Overseas (SWO) path, you must show that you have a strong connection with Manitoba by Having the assistance of family or friends (Manitoba assistance), having completed your study or worked in the province previously (Manitoba Experience), or having received an invitation to apply directly from the MPNP as part of a strategic recruitment initiative (Manitoba Invitation).

You must receive at least 60 points based on the following five factors in addition to having a link to Manitoba: language proficiency, age, work experience, education, and adaptability.
