Canada has introduced a new immigration program

The town of Morden in Manitoba, Canada has introduced a new immigration program called Morden’s Community Driven Immigration Initiative which is designed to help applicants who do not meet the criteria for existing provincial nominee program streams (ex. Family, Employer Direct, General).

Winnipeg - CanadaFor eligible applicants, the town will offer full support to potential immigrants that do not have ties to any other part of Canada. Applicants must meet a set of general qualifications in order to be offered support such as minimum landing funds as designated by the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), experience in a targeted occupation, and be between the ages of 21-45 (among other criteria).

The application process begins with an exploratory visit after confirming the applicant’s eligibility and then, if both the town of Morden and the applicant are satisfied, the applicant will be provided a letter of nomination which can be used to immigrate through the MPNP process. This program is an innovative new opportunity for those looking to start fresh in Canada.

    Hi,

    Since ECA report is provided online also apart from hard copy sent by post. I live in India, can I choose a standard mail as it is cheaper to get the hard copy. While i can use the online version to create my express entry form, does that make any sense ?

    Is hard copy of ECA at all required ? at any stage ?

    Thanks for your guidance.

    Regards,Munish

      Hello Paltan,

      Thanks for the question. You may be eligible for the FSW program, but given that it is not entirely clear that the title of your occupation will qualify for the FSW program, it would be highly recommended that you speak with one of our experienced immigration professionals who would be able to ensure that you have a strong case and that all of your options are thoroughly explored. Please refer to http://www.visaplace.com/canadian-immigration/canada-permanent-residence/skilled-worker-program/ for more information.

Can I do this for him so that he come to Canada again? He has so many professional qualification while in Canada( HACCP, Constitution and maintainance electrician and a member of the OIA(Ontario Institute if Agrologist) among many). So what do you think I can do to bring him back from Nigeria?

    My interest is to know about Federal Skilled Worker segment which has recently introduced by Canada Government and should I go for FSW on the basis of the above furnished details ?

      Hello Sanket,

      Thanks for the question. At the outset, if one only considers your and your wife’s professions, it does not appear that you would be eligible for the FSW program on that basis. However, there may still be other ways to become eligible for the FSW program or other immigration programs, and we would be able to help you determine this.
