In this draw, Skilled Workers in Manitoba required 435 points who were issued a LAA, and Skilled Workers Overseas competitors required 620 points.

- Recruitment Tasks. These abroad business/immigration fairs include MPNP delegates meeting foreign skilled workers and in this way welcoming them to apply after they have made a formal Expression of Interest (EOI) to the MPNP.
- Exploratory visits. The MPNP may welcome individuals who have embraced a pre-approved Exploratory Visit and passed a meeting with a system official.
The MPNP for Skilled Workers depends on the requirements of managers in Manitoba.
