Morden Community Immigration Pathway

MPNP - Morden Community Immigration Pathway

Morden city, Manitoba has introduced a new pathway program for all the interested individuals who are willing to move to Canada but do not have any job offer, or any of their friends or family members staying in Canada.

The Morden Community Immigration Pathway program was designed under Manitoba PNP that works to fill the gap of labour shortages in the city, and the governing body of Morden city will nominate the applicants on the basis of the previous work experience in various fields such as cabinet making, manufacturing, industrial sewing machine operators, welding, childcare as well as daycare workers.

After succeeding in the first round of the application, an applicant will then receive a letter of success along with information about the exploratory visit to Morden, Manitoba and also an interview with the MPNP.

The period of the exploratory visit will last anywhere between 5-9 days, during which an applicant will experience a friendly, safe, as well as the diverse culture in Morden, Manitoba.

In an interview with MPNP, an applicant is required to bring all the education as well as training certificates, the previous employment references and all the supporting documents concerning the exploratory visit.

An applicant will then receive notice within 1 month of the exploratory visit as well as an interview concerning the application invite for assessment. If an applicant passes the interview, he/she will then receive an application invite which needs to be filled online within the period of 6 months after receiving the application invite. If an applicant is nominated, he/she will then receive an Approval Letter, after which an applicant becomes eligible to apply for the Canadian PR to the Canadian Embassy.

The initiative will surely benefit all the applicants having the experience of living in rural areas who are capable of adapting to the new culture and the environment as well. An exploratory visit to the area will be required for applicants who meet the requirements and have been chosen as potential immigrants to Morden under the Morden Community Immigration Pathway initiative. The prime purpose of the exploratory visit is to successfully clear the interview conducted by MPNP, although it is also recommended to build local contacts as well as seek employment opportunities.

The MPNP demands that the applicant, at the time of the exploratory visit, ensure that he or she fulfills all the minimum requirements. It is also an applicant’s responsibility not to build or maintain any connections during their application and before their arrival outside Morden. This suggests that if a friend or family member moved out of Morden, your application will then go under re-assessment which will be done by Morden’s Selection Committee just to evaluate their continued support of your application.
