  • Nova Scotia launches new immigration pilot for in-demand intermediate-skilled workers

NSNP also updates Entrepreneur and International Graduate Entrepreneur streams

Nova Scotia has unveiled a new three-year pilot stream for immigration candidates with an eligible job offer in one of its targeted intermediate-skilled occupations.
The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) said professions targeted by the new Occupation in Demand Stream are “in high labour market demand” in the province.
The occupations are also subject to change as labour market needs in the province evolve.
The Occupation in Demand Stream is currently open to eligible candidates with 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).
• NOC 3413 — Nurses aides, orderlies and patient service associates
• NOC 7511 — Transport truck drivers
