Nova Scotia Nominee Program

When looking at immigrating to Canada, you have to consider which province you intend to live in. Nova Scotia could be a possible option for you. Nova Scotia is a scenic province with a booming economy.

If you are interested in moving to Nova Scotia, you have to figure out the best route for you. If you do not have a job offer, you can potentially be eligible to apply under the Regional Labour Market Demand Stream of the Nominee Program. However, in order to be eligible to apply under the Regional Market Demand Stream, you have to intend to work in an occupation that is in demand in the region of Nova Scotia you intent to live.

Is My Intended Occupation In Demand?

One of the first questions you have to ask yourself before you consider applying under the Regional Labour Market Demand Stream of the Nominee Program is whether the occupation you intend to pursue in Nova Scotia is in demand in the province.

You have to determine the job outlook for your intended occupation in the specific area in Nova Scotia you intend to settle – the outlook must be either good or fair in your intended area of residence.

How Do I Know if My Occupation is in Demand?

In order to determine whether the occupation you intend to pursue in Nova Scotia is in demand, you have to ensure that your intended occupation is on the In Demand Occupation List provided by the Province.

The In Demand Occupation List is based on Human Resources and Skills Development Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC) System.

According to the In Demand Occupation List:

  • Your intended occupation must be a NOC O, A or B skill-level occupation
  • The outlook for intended occupation must be good, or at least, fair

Many of the occupations listed in the In-Demand Occupation List fall under the following major categories:

  • Managers
  • Accountants
  • Engineers
  • Analysts
  • Consultants
  • Designers
  • Computer Programmers
  • Technicians
  • Data Administrators
  • Contractors and Supervisors
  • Welders
  • Mechanics

The In-Demand Occupation List outlines the accepted occupations in further detail.
