Nova Scotia has unveiled a new three-year pilot stream for immigration candidates with an eligible job offer in one of its targeted intermediate-skilled occupations.
The occupations are also subject to change as labour market needs in the province evolve.
The Occupation in Demand Stream is currently open to eligible candidates with a full-time permanent job offer from a Nova Scotia employer in two specific occupations categorized as Skill Level C under Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC).
- NOC 3413 — Nurses aides, orderlies and patient service associates
- NOC 7511 — Transport truck drivers
Candidates approved through the stream would receive a provincial nomination and could then apply to the Government of Canada for Canadian permanent residence.
