The province of Nova Scotia has uncovered a new three-year pilot stream for immigration candidates having an eligible job offer in one of the most in-demand intermediate-skilled occupations. The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) said professions targeted by the new Occupation in Demand Steam are "in high labour market demand” in the province.
The occupations mentioned on the list are subject to change as per the labour requirements in the province.
The occupation in-demand stream is currently open to eligible candidates having a full-time permanent job offer from a Nova Scotia employer in two specific occupations categorized as Skill Level C under Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC).
The two occupations are:
Additionally, the applicants must meet the following requirements in order to be eligible:
The work experience and transferable skills will be verified via letters of reference from employers and supporting employment documents. The applicants who are approved through this stream would receive a provincial nomination to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence.
The Nova Scotia Nominee Program with the introduction of new occupation in demand stream pilot brings the number of immigration pathways to eight.
"We are constantly evaluating our programs to see how we can better respond to what the province needs," said Nova Scotia Immigration Minister, Lena Metlege Diab.
Important updates under existing NSNP Entrepreneur Stream
The Nova Scotia PNP also introduced updates to its Entrepreneur and International Graduate Entrepreneur Streams.
Existing business owners will be eligible under the Entrepreneur Stream and will be able to include operating expenses towards the required minimum investment. Also, the ownership requirements for international graduates looking to start a business will change from 100 percent to one third.
"The change will allow for collaboration with other entrepreneurs and give recent international graduates more flexibility in achieving entrepreneurship and immigration, the NSNP said in a news release.
For further information related to Nova Scotia Immigrant Nominee Program and different PR programs, it is suggested to fill the Canada Immigration Assessment Form to arrange a callback from one of the visas and immigration experts.
This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
