NOVA SCOTIA PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM

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 Residency.

The Nova Scotia PNP allows candidates 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 for this program. Nova Scotia’s PNP offers two categories.

Category A requires candidates to have a job offer from an employer in the province. This could be a challenge for candidates 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 CRITERIA FOR CATEGORY A

Here are the eligibility criteria to submit under the two categories:

  • The candidate must register his profile with the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry system

FAQ
How can I know if a job is a skilled position?

The NSNP considers a job to be a skilled occupation if it comes under the National Occupational Classification (NOC) Levels 0 (management jobs), A (professional jobs), or B (technical jobs). Such high skilled positions receive priority processing with the NSNP.

What is the National Occupational Classification [NOC] of Canada?

A nationally-accepted reference to classify and understand occupations in Canada, the NOC contains more than 40,000 jobs titles into 500 group descriptions.

What is the standard processing time for applications submitted to the NSNP?

Typically, a completed form can be expected to be processed by the NSOI in around three months’ time.
