The Canadian government aims to add 4.4 percent of the total new immigrants with francophones. Nova Scotia is working towards meeting or exceeding the federal government’s target. For this, the province will invite 150 francophone immigration candidates in the federal Express Entry system to submit an application for Canada PR through the Labor Market Priorities Stream of Nova Scotia PNP.

Nova Scotia is making progress in bringing in more French-speaking individuals to Canada. The francophone immigration action plan was introduced in 2019. Since then, the percentage of francophone immigration candidates who got approval through the PNP increased to 6.4 percent in 2021 from under 1 percent in 2018.
