One of the most sought-after immigration locations in Canada is Nova Scotia. Excellent infrastructure, employment opportunities, and a good standard of living are all present there.
Through the Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program, anyone can immigrate to Nova Scotia. The same selection standards as the Express Entry Program are used. The only exception is that the province has the authority to select participants from a pool of program applicants.
Candidates are chosen by the Nova Scotia PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) based on factors like age, academic standing, language proficiency, and the job offer. Only those who can prove they are qualified workers worthy of the job are accepted into the immigration program.
Acquiring a job offer is the most difficult obstacle to obtaining permanent residency through the Provincial Nominee Program. Even without a job offer, you can still apply for the Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
You can apply for the program in a number of streams under the Nova Scotia PNP:
- Only the Nova Scotia Demand Express Entry program lets you apply for the Nova Scotia PNP without having received a job offer.
- Other programs include the International Graduate Entrepreneur Stream, Skilled Worker Stream, and Nova Scotia Experience Express Entry.
Under Nova Scotia Demand Express Entry, a candidate may submit an application for one of two types of permanent residence in Canada. There are two, namely Category A and Category B.
Candidates in category B are those without a work offer but who have the ability and experience in the future occupation. Those in category A have a legitimate employment offer.
You can register for the Nova Scotia PNP under Category B even if you don’t yet have a job offer. To relocate to the province, all you need is relevant work experience and financial resources.
The stream is intended to be open and shut throughout the year in order to control the entry of immigrants through it.
Remember that the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration retains the ability to assess certain employment categories in light of current labor market demands.
Numerous eligibility criteria are listed in the Nova Scotia PNP Point Calculator before you may submit an application for Category B of the Nova Scotia Demand Express Entry Program:
- One of the positions listed in the Nova Scotia Demand Express Entry Guide requires prior experience.
- You should create a profile with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry Program.
- On the score grid for the Express Entry Program, you must receive 67 points out of a possible 100.
- You need to have at least a year’s worth of professional job experience in the field of your choice.
- You should possess a high school diploma from Canada or its equivalent.
- You should have met the Canadian Language Benchmark 7 requirement for language proficiency in either English or French.
- In order to settle down effectively in Nova Scotia, you should get enough financial proof.
