PNPs → Nova Scotia Nominee Program

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) offers a quicker entry into Canada for qualified workers and experienced entrepreneurs who wish to settle in Nova Scotia and become permanent residents of Canada.

It allows Nova Scotia to recruit and select immigrants who can contribute to meeting the labour market and economic needs of the province.

NSNP Program Streams:

Skilled Worker Stream - there are specific sectors in Nova Scotia that have many opportunities for skilled immigrants. This stream fast-tracks applicants who have the needed skills and permanent full-time job offers.

Family Business Worker Stream - this helps family-owned businesses to hire close relatives who have skills that couldn't be found in Canadian citizens or permanent residents.This stream is employer-driven. The worker must have a guaranteed, permanent job offer in Nova Scotia from an employer who is a close relative and who owns an established business in Nova Scotia.

Non-Dependent Child of Nova Scotia Nominees Stream - The NSNP Non-Dependent Child of Nova Scotia Nominees stream is aimed at selecting individuals who are the non-dependent children of immigrants who were nominated under the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP). The Principal Applicant must plan to live in Nova Scotia permanently, be employable and be able to contribute to the labour market and economy of Nova Scotia.

International Graduate Stream - helps employers hire and retain recent international graduates whose skills may be in limited supply in the province. This stream targets international graduates who have established strong ties to Nova Scotia and intend to live, work, and establish their careers in this province.
