New Immigration Pilot Program Launched By Nova Scotia For In-Demand Intermediate-Skilled Workers

New Immigration Pilot Program Launched By Nova Scotia

Province of Nova Scotia unveils their new immigration pilot program for three years for the immigrants with an eligible job offer in Nova Scotia’s intermediate-skilled occupations. Professions that are targeted by this new stream are “in high labour market demand” in the province.

For to be eligible to apply under this stream, candidates need to have a full-time job offer letter from an eligible employer of the province in two targeted occupations categorized under National Occupational Classification (NOC) skill level C:

  • NOC 3413: Nurses’ aides, orderlies and patient service associates
  • NOC 7511: Transport truck drivers

These targeted occupations are subject to change with the demand for the province’s labor market. With the job offer letter, there are also other eligibility criteria and these are as follows:

  • Must have a minimum of one year of work experience that is related to job
  • Age must be in between 21 to 55 years
  • Must possess a high school diploma
  • Must have appropriate training, skills and/or accreditation for the job
  • For language proficiency, minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 4 is required
  • Must be able to show minimum funds required to settle successfully in Nova Scotia

For work experience and transferable skills, letters of reference from the employer and supporting employment documents are required.

Once the candidates are approved via this stream, they will be nominated for a provincial nomination and then can apply for PR visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

With the introduction of the new immigration pilot program, the number of immigration pathway under Nova Scotia Provincial Nomination Program (NSPNP) has come to a total of eight.

Other than the introduction of the new immigration pilot program, updates were also made in NSNP’s Entrepreneur and International Graduate Entrepreneur Streams. Existing business owners will now be eligible under the Entrepreneur Stream and can now include operating expenses towards the required minimum investment. The requirement for ownership for international graduates to start a business will change from 100 percent to one third.
