Brandon is very excited to be participating in an immigration pilot that provides Brandon with the opportunity to work directly with employers and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to create a path to permanent residence for skilled Foreign Nationals who are able to fill local job vacancies and want to live in Brandon and the surrounding area. The application deadline for the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program is slated for February 29, 2024.

Brandon, MB is a welcoming community of just over 51,000 people located in the southwest corner of Manitoba, one hour from the USA and Saskatchewan borders. In the past decade, Brandon has successfully welcomed over 7,000 newcomers from all over the world.

As the second largest city in Manitoba, our full service city is home to two colleges, a university, a regional hospital, government offices and numerous businesses and services of all types and sizes. The community has a low crime rate, affordable housing, clean water, fresh air, free quality public education and health systems, and abundant recreational and cultural opportunities.

The city is fortunate to have Westman Immigrant Services, a community based charitable organization that assists immigrants by providing three core services; English as an Additional Language (EAL) classes, Settlement Services and Brandon Community Language Centre Interpreter services.
