11 Oct, 2017 Nova Scotia Express Entry Stream Open | Canada Immigration News

The popular Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry stream of the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) is open today, Wednesday, October 11, 2017.

Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry is a popular first-come, first-served immigration program operated by the maritime province of Nova Scotia.

There are two categories under which candidates can be eligible for the program. Category A is for candidates with a job offer in the province. Applicants eligible under Category A can submit an application to the province at any time, provided they are in the Express Entry pool.

Category B is for candidates with experience in an opportunity occupation in the province. Applicants eligible under Category B have to wait for an intake period to open to submit an application.

As of 9 a.m. October 11, 2017, Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry is accepting applications under Category B. However, only 250 to 300 applications will be accepted during this intake period. Once the quota is met, the program will close again.

SUMMARY

  1. To be eligible for this stream, candidates must have either:
    1. Experience in a target occupation, or
