Having said that, the new immigration stream is a positive step that ensures that qualified and talented candidates who are already employed in Nova Scotia. This stream also goes hand in hand with the Canada Express Entry System introduced in January 2015 to facilitate skilled immigration in Canada.


To be eligible under the Nova Scotia Experience Express Entry program, the applicant must have received a job offer letter from a certified employer in Nova Scotia. There is a possibility of change in the provincial priorities in case Canadian permanent residents or citizens meet the skills requirements before the applicant files his or her application.


Priority would be given to applicants whose employers have

  • Made an effort to hire Canadian residents or citizens but failed to find the right candidate for the job
  • Demonstrated how they would provide additional help and support to help the new recruits settle in Nova Scotia
