Nova Scotia

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program maintains an active relationship with the federal Express Entry pool, and individuals interested in relocating to Nova Scotia may have a variety of possibilities.

Nova Scotia's Labor Market Priorities Stream is a dynamic and flexible stream that enables the government to choose qualified applicants from the Express Entry pool and ask them to apply for provincial nomination based on the most recent labor market requirements. Each invitation round chooses individuals with work experience in a specific occupation or set of occupations from the Express Entry pool. Candidates selected in this stream should anticipate excellent career possibilities in the province, as their occupation has been prioritized due to a local skills and experience deficit.

The Nova Scotia Experience stream, which is associated with Express Entry, enables qualified candidates in the federal Express Entry pool to pick Nova Scotia as their new home in Canada. Individuals in the Express Entry pool with prior job experience in Nova Scotia may qualify for this stream.

Express Entry applicants who are nominated by a province under an Express Entry-aligned stream get 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and an invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residence in a later pool draw.
