Employment Opportunities in Nova Scotia

Under the Regional Labour Market Demand Stream for the Province of Nova Scotia in Canada, a job offer is not needed in order to apply for a visa. The scheme is part of the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP).

This is due to skills and experience shortages in the area. Part of the criteria is that you are aged between 21 – 55. There are also language proficiency, work experience and education requirements.

There are 43 eligible backgrounds which are applicable for the visa including engineering, healthcare, skilled trades and food / catering.

In order to apply for a visa, an employment settlement plan needs to be completed whereby you will need to outline why you would like to move to the area.

The process involves the province nominating immigrants who have the desired skills and experience and who will contribute to the provincial and national economy. Ultimately the Federal Government decides who will be awarded the visas.

In terms of employment opportunities in Nova Scotia, there are also many other industries which are present such as the Film and Television production, aerospace, mining and tourism (Halifax is a popular Cruise terminal). The ICT sector is also a growing industry in this area. Manufacturing provides many jobs and Michelin is one of the largest companies present here.

About Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is a maritime province in the Atlantic Ocean. The provincial capital is Halifax. Although it is the second smallest province in Canada, it is densely populated with almost 1 million inhabitants.

The name Nova Scotia means ‘New Scotland’ in Latin and it is known for having Scottish and English ethnic groups living there. It is generally a tolerant society with many active human rights organisations in the area.

The province is an area which will appeal to migrants wanting an outdoor lifestyle, a moderate climate and to live near the ocean. Outdoor adventure activities available include walking, hiking, climbing, water sports, cycling, sailing, golf and surfing. The beaches also mean that it is a great place for families with plenty of places to take the children.

A must visit place to visit is the picturesque Peggy’s Cove. In addition The Cabot Trail is popular with walkers and hikers. In terms of sport, basketball and hockey are popular. Nova Scotia has a good dining scene and is known for its great seafood, in particular lobster.
