New provincial nominee program announced by Nova Scotia

A new stream is being added to the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) of Nova Scotia and it would be known as the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP). Now with the help of the NSNP Non-Dependent Children of Nova Scotia Nominees stream, children of people who have been earlier nominated by the province will be allowed to apply for fast-track immigration to Canada, provided they are non-dependents.

A new stream is being added to the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) of Nova Scotia and it would be known as the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP). Now with the help of the NSNP Non-Dependent Children of Nova Scotia Nominees stream, children of people who have been earlier nominated by the province will be allowed to apply for fast-track immigration to Canada, provided they are non-dependents.

The primary motive behind this new stream is to bring and retain non-dependent children of previous nominees of the province so that the demographic and labor market needs of the province can be fulfilled.

Immigration Minister of Nova Scotia, Ramona Jannex, said that due to the ageing and declining population of Nova Scotia, the province is committed towards attracting more number of immigrants and the new option marks an important first step towards this goal.

If Canadian or Permanent Resident parents of non-dependent children came to Canada under the NSNP, lived in the province for a minimum of three months and are still living in the province, then such children may qualify to immigrate to the province.

Jannex said that the new stream opens a way for overseas families to reunite in the province and live here forever.

Applications filed by such children must also show their commitment to settle permanently in the province and demonstrate their ability to integrate into the economy and labor market of the province. Also, their names must have been mentioned in the immigration applications of their parents. They should also fulfill certain criteria regarding age, education, language and training requirements.
