A record number of applications were approved in the year 2018 by Nova Scotia. The provincial government states that more of immigration candidates are being welcomed in Canada this year as new permanent residents.

Through this year’s immigration program, the Atlantic Canada Province managed to accept 2272 of applicants. The provincial government reports that more immigrants were approved to make Nova Scotia their residing home. Nova Scotia has a nominee program known as Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) that has accepted 1400 applications. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) approved the remaining 872 applications.

The province is allowed by NSNP to nominate a given set of numbers of the economic immigration candidates for a permanent residence yearly. This is possible through various streams linked to Canada’s FEES (Federal Express Entry System).

The group of candidates is managed by the Express Entry system for Canada’s the three Federal Skilled economic immigration programs. The three Express Entry-linked streams give the province an authority to invite candidates who are eligible forgiven programs. They, therefore, register for a provincial nomination of a permanent residence. There are three streams which include:

  • Nova Scotia Demand
  • Nova Scotia Experience
  • Labour Market Priorities
