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).
For 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.
