Application Process Overview:


Morden’s Community Driven Immigration Initiative is a support program for those who will apply for permanent residence IN MORDEN through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, Strategic Initiative Pathway.  If an applicant is not able to qualify on their own to apply to the MPNP (ex. With the support letter of a friend or family member), they can apply to our initiative for a support letter.  We choose approximately 50 families per year to be supported by our program.  This is typically approximately 5% of applications received.


Step 1: Determine whether you qualify for our program

Step 2: Apply 

Step 3: If you are chosen for MCDII, you will be given a support letter and/or an invitation for an exploratory visit

Step 4:   If an exploratory visit is part of your process, you will research Morden and prepare for your future MPNP application. Your info will then be submitted to MPNP who will give you an invitation to enter MPNP's EOI pool. Note that an exploratory visit is not always necessary or suitable for your process.

Step 5: Once you are pulled from MPNP's EOI pool you can apply online for MPNP. 

Step 6: If, after you are reviewed by MPNP, it is determined that you meet all minimum qualifications of MPNP, you will be given a Nomination Letter from the MPNP.

Step 7: Using this nomination letter, you can apply for federal processing whether or not you also have a federal express entry profile will determine which type of application you fill out for

Step 8: Citizenship and Immigration Canada will do a further review, including medical and criminal record checks.

Step 9: Once you receive your Permanent Residence Visas, you can make arrangements for you and your family to move to Morden.

*** We are not affiliated with any Immigration Representative nor do we give preferential treatment to applicants who have hired an Immigration Representative.  However, if you do choose to have your paperwork completed by an Immigration Representative, please refer to for information on making an informed choice. ***


In order to protect the integrity and efficiency of our program, applicants MUST apply from outside of Canada.  We will not consider an applicant for an exploratory visit or assist them in setting up an MPNP interview if they arrive in Morden without a formal invitation for exploratory visit.
