If you meet the above requirements, you may apply for the Morden Community Driven Immigration Initiative (➨immilib.com/MCDII-Apply). You must apply from outside Canada.

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

Step 2: Exploratory Visit

You may receive an invitation for an exploratory visit. If an exploratory visit is part of your process, you are required to research Morden and prepare for your future MPNP application.

Due to the very small size of the program, MCDII is only able to choose and support a small percentage of received applications.  They choose applicants based on minimum qualifications, occupational experience, and ability to adapt to climate, culture, and genuine intention on living and working in Morden.

Step 4: Submit Application to MPNP

Once you are pulled from MPNP's EOI pool you can apply online for MPNP.
You will have 60 days from the date of your LAA to submit a complete application.
If you fail to submit a complete application by the deadline, your LAA will be automatically removed and you will have to start the process again.
Once you have submitted your complete application through your online account and paid the processing fee, your application will be reviewed.

An MPNP officer will contact you by email if information is needed to assess your application and will tell you how to send the information.

You may be required to participate in an interview as reasonably required to verify information related to your application, or any other reason to be disclosed at the time of the request.

Non-Express Entry Applicants: If you are approved and nominated, you should apply to IRCC for Permanent Residence. The nomination certificate will be valid for six (6) months from the date of issuance and is considered valid if you submit a complete application for PR before the expiry date on the nomination certificate.

Express Entry Applicants: If you had an Express Entry profile when submitted your EOI, upon approval you will receive a nomination certificate through the Express Entry portal. The MPNP will also send you a nomination certificate that you should retain for your records. 

You must accept the nomination within thirty (30) days after it is issued through the Express Entry portal in order to receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence.

When you accept a nomination, you are awarded 600 additional points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) (➨Page). This will help you quickly get invited to apply for permanent residence through your Express Entry profile.

Step 5: Apply for Permanent Residence

Non-Express Entry Applicants: If you are nominated by the Province of Manitoba, then your next step is to submit a complete application for a permanent resident visa within six (6) months (➨Page).

You must submit your application using the IRCC Permanent Residence Portal (PR Portal) (➨ immilib.com/PR-Portal). 

If your application is complete, you will receive a letter or an email confirming that your file has been received and accepted for processing. This letter is called the Acknowledge of Receipt (AOR) and will include your IRCC file number.
Once you have received your acknowledgement of receipt, you can create an online account and link your application to it. By creating an account, you will be able to receive email updates and a more detailed case status.

Express Entry Applicants: If you have an Express Entry profile, you should apply for permanent residence (➨Page) through Express Entry if you’ve received an invitation to apply.

Your Express Entry invitation to apply is valid for sixty (60) days only.
Apply for a Bridging Open Work Permit (if applicable)

If you are in Canada on a work permit and your PR application is not finalized, you may be able to apply for a Bridging Open Work Permit (BOWP) (➨Page). This will let you to stay and continue working on a valid work permit until your PR application is finalized.

You may apply for BOWP only if your PR application is approved in principle meaning you have passed the eligibility stage and still have to pass the medical, security and background checks.

Step 6: Landing in Canada

If your application is approved, you will be asked to pay your right of permanent residence fee if you haven't already done so. You will receive a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (CoPR) and if you are from a country that requires a visa you will also be issued a permanent resident visa.

You will only become a Permanent Resident of Canada when you cross a Canadian port of entry. This is referred to as ‘landing in Canada' (➨Page).

You must land in Canada before the expiry date, which appears on your Canada Immigration Visa. Usually, the expiry date is one (1) year from the time medical examinations were completed. As this is not always the case, be sure to verify the expiry date as soon as the Canada Immigration Visa is received.
