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.
NSOI uses the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2011 to designate which occupational group nominees fall under. The NOC is the nationally accepted reference on occupations in Canada. It organizes over 40,000 job titles into 500 occupational group descriptions. Detailed information on the NOC can be found at http://www5.hrsdc.gc.ca/NOC/English/NOC/2011/Welcome.aspx.
This dataset provides the number of certificates issued annually by NOC Skill Level, NOC Code (4 digits), and Occupational Group:
* Skill Level corresponds to the type and/or amount of training or education typically required to work in an occupation;
* The 4-digit NOC code is comprised of 500 occupational groups identified as unit groups;
* Occupational Groups describe each of the 500 unit groups in plain language terms such as Financial auditors and accountants; Mining engineers; and Audiologists and speech-language pathologists.
The maximum number of 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.
