Nova Scotia Nominee Program

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) is an application process of two levels for obtaining permanent resident visa of Canada.

Level 1: Nova Scotia Nominee Program Application

Once made the mindset to work and settle permanently in Nova Scotia, apply the required application forms supported by the documentation and submit the entire application package to Nova Scotia office of Immigration. The processing time is maximum three months or more for the eligible applications.

Level 2: Application for Canadian Citizenship and Immigration for Permanent Resident Visa

After being nominated by Nova Scotia, apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for permanent resident visa. The nomination letter contains the important information about the federal process. The applicant along with his/her spouse and dependents must meet requirements for medical, security and criminal admissibility, and in some cases you may be asked to go for an interview. CIC has the final authority to issue a permanent resident visa.

The applicants eligible for nomination must meet all the eligibility criteria below:

  • The applicant must be between 21 to 55 years of age
  • The applicant must have achieved a minimum language standard on the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) scale or Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC) of at least CLB/NCLC Level 5
  • The intended occupation of the applicant is a National Occupational Classification (NOC) level 0, A, or B and there is demonstrated demand for this occupation in the regional labour market in the community in which you intend to live
  • The applicant should have a valid document i.e. passport
  • Evidence for the availability of funds
  • The applicant must have at least two (2) years of continuous full-time work experience within the last five (5) years, in a field of work related to your intended occupation in Nova Scotia
  • The applicant can show that he will become economically established in Nova Scotia and that you intend to live in the province permanently
  • The applicant must have completed the equivalent of a Canadian high school diploma with a minimum of twelve (12) years of education and/or training from a recognized educational institution AND you have completed and received a degree, diploma or certificate from a recognized post-secondary educational institution or training program
  • The applicant must have completed an Employment and Settlement Plan, which sketches the potential economic, labour market and social contributions to the community.

If the applicant is not proficient in English or French, the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration requires all applicants in the Regional Labour Market Demand stream to submit written proof, explanation or language testing results demonstrating that a minimum standard of CLB/NCLC Level 5 has been met, which consists of meeting the minimum levels for each competency listed below.

Written evidence or explanation may be verified by one or more of the following:

  • Educational transcripts or other documentation indicating English or French as the principal language of instruction.
  • Employment history and references indicating English or French as the principal language of communication.

Language tests must not be more than two years old at the time the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration receives your complete application. The Nova Scotia Office of Immigration will only consider results from the following designated testing agencies:
