Key Features of Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Programs

Nova Scotia is a province of Canada. A population of over one million makes it a small province compared to others in Canada. Nova Scotia’s primary language is English, though there are French-speaking communities throughout the region. The climate of Nova Scotia depends on where in the province you are located, but most areas have cooler summers and colder winters than you would find in other parts of Canada because it is closer to sea level. The coastline features many small islands and coves, making scenic vacation spots during summer.

Once you have decided to move to Nova Scotia, you must apply for a provincial nomination program. The NSNP mainly targets skilled immigrants with the skills and experience in high-demand jobs or fresh graduates who have the potential to contribute the best to the economic growth of the province. The Nova Scotia province will nominate the candidate for a Canada PR if they meet the eligibility criteria prescribed by the Provincial Government of Nova Scotia. The candidate who receives the Nominee Certificate from the province can apply for a Canada Permanent resident visa by contacting IRCC. In the last year, 2021, Nova Scotia has welcomed around 9000 new permanent residents, and for the years 2022-2023, they are getting ready to accept more Scotians to fill the skills gaps in the labor market to build a stronger community.
