Through the Nova Scotia Nominee Program, the province will welcome applications for a provincial nomination certificate through its Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry stream.

As this is an Express Entry-aligned stream, candidates with a provincial nomination are awarded 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and placed at the front of the line for selection in a subsequent draw from the pool.

Up to 250 applications will be accepted online for Category B of the stream, for which candidates must have at least one year of work experience in a target occupation. It offers candidates in the Express Entry pool a way to apply for a provincial nomination certificate on a first-come, first-served basis, and because Nova Scotia is an increasingly popular immigration destination, it is likely that the upcoming intake will prove popular.

Eligibility requirements:

Express Entry candidates who wish to apply to Category B of Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry must:

  • Have at least one year of full-time (or equivalent part-time) skilled work experience in the last ten years in one of the 16 ‘opportunity’ occupations considered by Nova Scotia;

  • Obtain at least 67 points on the Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry points grid. Points are awarded based on language proficiency, age, work experience, education, and adaptability; and
