So is the land yours forever? Yes! If you work there permanently for more than five years, you get to keep it for free.


Wondering the reason behind the lucrative offer? Well, the Canadian island is rich in jobs, land, and potential, but there are no people there. So, it is a strategy to invite people for the job. So far, more than 3,500 applicants have already been received.
