Nova Scotia nominates record number of immigrants in 2017

Nova Scotia nominates record number of immigrants in 2017


Atlantic province nominated more than 1,400 immigrants in 2017

Nova Scotia says its Provincial Nominee Program nominated a record number of immigrants in 2017.


The Atlantic Canada province nominated more than 1,400 people through the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP), which accepts applications under five immigration streams.


Those five streams are:


  • Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry
  • Nova Scotia Experience: Express Entry
  • Skilled Worker
  • Entrepreneur
  • International Graduate Entrepreneur


One of the NSNP’s most active components was Category B of the NSNP’s Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry stream, which opened to applications three times in 2017 and reached its intake limit quickly each time.


Applicants to this popular first-come, first-served immigration category do not need a job offer. However, they do need at least a year’s paid work experience in one of Nova Scotia’s opportunity occupations, as well as a profile registered in the federal Express Entry system.


Nova Scotia says another 200 immigrants arrived in Nova Scotia in 2017 along with their families through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP), an innovative, region-based immigration partnership established in 2017 between the federal government and the governments of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.


In all, Nova Scotia says it welcomed more than 4,000 newcomers in 2017, down from a 70-year high of nearly 5,500 in 2016 that included 1,500 Syrian refugees.


“Helping newcomers immigrate and build lives here in Nova Scotia is a priority for the department and its settlement partners,” said Nova Scotia’s Immigration Minister Lena Metlege Diab in a statement on the 2017 numbers. “[Immigration] is key to growing the province and its economy and I look forward to continuing this work in [2018].”
