You may be asked to show a work offer to be considered for the Nova Scotia provincial candidate program. Collect all necessary documentation and qualifications after receiving the job offer. Complete your application by meeting all other mandatory requirements and submitting it to the Nova Scotia Immigration Office, which will also nominate you for immigration to Nova Scotia.

People who meet the criteria in terms of work experience, diplomas and education qualifications, abilities, and other factors are nominated by New Brunswick.

There are commercial immigration systems, not family reunification programs, protected persons programs, or humanitarian and compassionate purposes.
