Nova Scotia PNP

Though Nova Scotia is the second smallest province in the world, it is a favored province for immigrants to settle in because it has a demand for highly skilled workers. The Nova Scotia PNP nominates foreign workers who qualify for the permanent resident visa.

The Nova Scotia PNP allows applicants to qualify under a range of skilled occupations. Apart from this entrepreneurs, international graduates and temporary foreign works can use the PNP of this province to settle down in Canada.

The Nova Scotia Immigration Program is aligned with the Express Entry system. Candidates with an active Express Entry profile are eligible to apply for this program. Nova Scotia’s PNP offers two categories. 

Category A which requires candidates to have a job offer from an employer in the province. This could be a challenge for applicants from outside Canada.

 Category B does not have such a condition. The candidates are only required to have experience in any of the in-demand occupations in the province.

Eligibility requirements to apply under Category A

Here are the eligibility requirements to apply under the two categories:

  • The applicant must register his profile with the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry system
  • He must score a minimum of 67 points or more in the eligibility criteria
  • He must have a job offer from a Nova Scotia employer for full-time work with a validity of at least one year after your PR visa is issued
  • He must have at least one year of skilled work experience related to the job
  • He must have completed education equivalent to Canadian high school credentials
  • He must prove his proficiency in either English or French based on the Canadian Language Benchmark

He must have financial resources to help him settle in the province

Eligibility requirements to apply under Category B

  • Applicant must be in one of the target occupations as identified in the Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry guide.
  • The applicant must register his profile with the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry system.
  • He must score a minimum of 67 points or more in the eligibility criteria.
  • He must have at least 1 year of skilled work experience in one of the province’s target occupations.
  • He must have completed education equivalent to Canadian high school credentials.
