In our previous newsletter, we outlined an immigration initiative from Morden, Manitoba — The Morden Community Driven Immigration Initiative — as part of an article on immigration to rural communities in Canada.

The main purpose of the visit is to pass the MPNP interview, though making local contacts and seeking employment opportunities are also suggested.
Here is some background information about Morden:
