  • One year of related work experience
  • Language proficiency equivalent to Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) Level 4
  • Financial capability to settle successfully in the province
According to NSNP, verification of work experience and transferable skills will be through the employer’s reference letters as well as supporting employment documents. All candidates approved through this Stream will get a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. Lena Metlege Diab, Nova Scotia’s Immigration Minister, said the province's programs are constantly evaluated in order to respond better to the needs of the province. He also acknowledged the impact of immigration on the province and stated he expects this new program to bring even more prosperity to businesses.
