Description

The Nova Scotia Office of Immigration (NSOI) issues nomination certificates to prospective immigrants who meet a labour market need and who will make a contribution to Nova Scotia’s economy. Nominees then apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada for a permanent resident visa.
In most cases, nominees inform the Office of Immigration of their intended county of residence at the time of application. Many applicants may already be living in that location as a temporary resident when they apply to become a permanent resident. This dataset provides the number of nomination certificates issued annually broken down into intended county of settlement.
The maximum number of nomination certificates that NSOI may issue annually through the Nova Scotia Nominee Program is determined by the federal government.

Usage Considerations
Current as of February 5, 2018. A nomination by the Province of Nova Scotia does not guarantee that the applicant will become a permanent resident. The federal government has the final decision on who receives permanent residency and is admissible to Canada based on various considerations that include, but are not limited to, health, criminality and security checks.
