  1. Hi,

    This is Mohammad B. Mustafa writing from United Arab Emirates and I am applying for immigration as a skilled worker federal program Express Entry. Currently, I am targeting Manitoba province and one of the things that help me a great deal is to find an association, center or any connection who can help me settle down there in case I receive invitation for permanent visa in Canada. I intend to come with my wife and three small kids and I will have the money to settle down there. So, as the layer told me, I need tangible connections and evidence that you welcome me and help me in any consultations in case I will find it difficult to settle down there alone. Consequently, are you willing to sponsor me and help me settle down there? If yes, I need a letter confirming this so I send it to my lawyer.
