Nova Scotia ‘Demand Express Entry’ Stream 2020

This stream was established to provide Nova Scotia with suitably skilled workers to fill the gap. Taking cues from the ‘National Express Entry Program’, this NSNP nominates people with post-secondary education, work experience in the region, and high skills to move to Nova Scotia. To further ease the entry and simplify the process, the NSNP authorities have divided the workgroups into the following categories:

  • Category I: It is designed for those who have a full-time job offer in hand from a Nova Scotia based company
  • Category II: It is for those who have at least 1 year of working experience anywhere in the country in the last ten years (however experience in Nova Scotia is highly preferred)
