The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) is an immigration pathway that targets prospective applicants to immigrate to Nova Scotia. The applicants targeted are the ones who are having the proper skills and experience that can be used to tackle the demographic changes and boost the country’s economy.
There are eight steam in the Nova Scotia PNP program and the applicants meeting the criteria for one of these eight streams can be selected to be nominated to Nova Scotia Immigration. The targeted processing time for Nova Scotia is three months.
There is a ‘Study and Stay’ program that is specially designed to help international students from India, China, and the Philippines to build their careers and stay in Nova Scotia after their graduation. Nova Scotia previously operated a Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry stream, but it was closed on a permanent basis on January 4, 2021.
Skilled professionals with experience in Nova Scotia are eligible to apply under the Nova Scotia Experience: Express Entry Stream. One of the core requirements for this stream is that the applicant must have at least one year of experience in occupations that are classified under National Occupational Classification (NOC) O, A, or B positions.
This stream is designed specifically to target specific occupations for immigration to Nova Scotia.
This stream primarily targets occupations for Letter of Interest along with Early Childhood Educators as the first focus job.
This stream is used to target professionals who are working as qualified doctors from the Federal Express Entry pool to move and settle in Nova Scotia.
The National Occupational Classifications (NOC) codes that are targeted by this stream are given below:

This stream targets intermediate-skilled professionals that are in huge demand in Nova Scotia.
The Nova Scotia Occupation In-Demand Pilot initially targeted transport truck drivers (NOC 7511) and nurse aides, patient service associates, and orderlies (NOC 3413). These occupations are subject to change as per the labour market demand. The jobs that are targeted fall under the National Occupational Classification (NOC) C.

They should also actively participate in the day-to-day management of the business as well.
Under this stream, the applicant is first issued a temporary work permit before they apply for a permanent residency after operating a business for over a year. An Expression of Interest format is used in this stream where applicants in the pool are invited to apply.
This stream is similar to the Entrepreneur stream with one minor difference aiming at recent graduates from Nova Scotia Community College or from Nova Scotia University.
