Morden’s Community Driven Immigration for Manitoba

Morden’s Community Driven Immigration for Manitoba

Often referred to as the “City of Discovery”, the City of Morden is located in the Pembina Valley region of southern Manitoba. Situated towards the south of Winnipeg, Morden is the eighth largest city in the province.

Morden prides itself on being a vibrant community offering an extraordinary quality of life. A place where the “grandeur of past meets the excitement of the future”.

There are many different routes that lead to Canadian immigration via Morden in Manitoba.

Ways to immigrate to Morden include the Skilled Worker Support Program, the MPNP Business Program, the MPNP Skilled Worker Overseas program etc.

Morden’s Community Driven Immigration Initiative [MCDII], is a support program targeted at those qualifying for permanent residence within Morden through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program [MPNP].

Manitoba is among the 9 provinces and 2 territories that are a part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program [PNP].

Applicants unable to qualify on their own for applying to the MPNP [for example, with a support letter from a family member or friend], can apply to the MCDII for a support letter.

Around 50 families a year are to be chosen for being supported by the program. 

In addition to an assessment of their minimum qualifications and occupational experience, applicants will be chosen based on their “ability to adapt to climate, culture, and genuine intention on living and working in Morden”.

Preference is to be given to applicants that have “recent experience” in any of the following National Occupational Classification [NOC] Codes –

NOC Code Details Express Entry requirement
NOC 7312 Heavy Duty Mechanic

[with experience in large trucks and agricultural equipment]

No express entry required

NOC 9536 Industrial painter No express entry required
NOC 9526 Mechanical Assembler

[especially trailer assembly]

For protecting the integrity and efficiency of the program, an applicant will have to apply from outside Canada. Exploratory visits without a formal invitation for the same will not be considered.
