Nova Scotia Nominee Program Stream Closed to New Applications

The Regional Labour Market Demand stream is closed to new applicants.

The stream has received about 3,000 applications since it opened March 6. Under a cap set by the federal government, the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration can nominate 150 people in the stream.

“We are pleased with the tremendous response we’ve received,” said Lena Diab, Minister of Immigration. “However, we have more than enough applications right now to meet our nominations for the 2014 calendar year.”

Applications closed as of 5 p.m. today, April 28, and are being processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

The stream is designed to attract immigrants with the right skills to meet Nova Scotia’s labour needs. As the labour market changes, it is important that the pool of applicants match labour market conditions. To that end, once nominees are identified, any documents that have not been processed will be returned to applicants.

The stream will re-open Jan. 1.

The federal government makes the final decision on whether applicants can become permanent Canadian residents.
