Refunds are being offered by the Nova Scotia government to the 800 Canadian immigrants who paid a fee of $CAD 130,000 in order to get middle-management job placements and the opportunity for a new and colorful life.

For further investigations, the failed program has been referred to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

Participants of the scheme can qualify for the refund if they started working with a business mentor prior to October 2007 and along with this, they must have lived in the province for at least 12 consecutive months before this particular month.

Under the scheme that was announced prior to this, only those nominees who have not signed work contract before October 2007 were eligible to get the refunds.

The province said that because a large number of Canadian immigrants are complaining that they never received the job and training they paid for, this step has been taken.

The amount of money that they will get as refund will depend on how much they have already been paid back by the businesses that had hired them.

Immigration Minister Len Goucher said that he expected the province would repay the amount to about 400 immigrants who have remained in the province.

Goucher said in a statement that they believe that the nominees and their families, who have proven their commitment to Nova Scotia and are building their futures here, and so they should be eligible for getting the refund as well.

All applications are needed to be submitted to the province by January 5, 2008.
