Following a lengthy break, Nova Scotia is reopening its doors to future Canadians. To improve its immigration practices, the province has introduced a new program, Labor Market Demand. Below are the new selection criteria:
1. Age: 21 to 55 years old.
2. Fluency in English: an intermediate level in IELTS or some other exam.
3. Work experience: two years of professional experience from the list of eligible occupations, from the last five years.
4. Education: at least one year of education after high school.
5. Funding: must have sufficient funds (depending on the size of the family).
6. Action plan: a candidate must do a thorough study of living conditions in Nova Scotia and submit a filled in Employment and Adaptation Plan outlining how they can benefit Canada’s economy, job market, and society.
When applying, you do not have to have a full-time employment contract with your prospective employer in the province. But to qualify as a new Canadian, you must find a relevant job from the list below.
