Temporary Suspension of New Applications for Accommodation & Food Services Sector by NSPNP.

As of April 17, 2024, at 12 noon ADT, the Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program (NSPNP) is experiencing a considerable backlog of applications from the Accommodation and Food Services sector. In response, the program has decided to temporarily halt the acceptance of new applications in this sector. This measure aims to allocate resources towards clearing the existing application inventory efficiently.

This suspension will remain in place until substantial progress is made in reducing the backlog. At that point, the sector will reopen for new submissions. While recognizing the inconvenience this may cause, the NSPNP views it as a necessary step to ensure the timely and effective processing of all immigration applications.

The Nova Scotia Skilled Worker program is a component of the Atlantic Immigration Program, a collaborative effort between the federal and provincial governments aimed at attracting skilled workers and international graduates to Atlantic Canada. Through this program, qualified applicants can obtain permanent residency in Canada and settle in Nova Scotia.

Who Qualifies for the Nova Scotia Skilled Worker Program?

To be eligible for the Nova Scotia Skilled Worker program, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  1. Possess a valid job offer from a Nova Scotia employer in an eligible occupation.
  2. Meet minimum language requirements in English or French.
  3. Have adequate work experience and education to fulfill the job duties.
  4. Demonstrate sufficient funds to support themselves and their families upon arrival in Nova Scotia.
  5. Intend to reside in Nova Scotia.

Unlike the federal Express Entry program, the NSPNP does not utilize a points-based system. Instead, eligibility is assessed based on the specific criteria outlined above.

Benefits of the Nova Scotia Skilled Worker Program

Immigrating to Nova Scotia through the Skilled Worker program offers several advantages:

  • Faster processing times: The average processing time for this program is approximately 6 months, quicker than many other Canadian immigration streams.
  • Opportunity for permanent residency: Successful applicants and their family members receive permanent resident status in Canada.
  • Settlement support: The program provides settlement services and resources to facilitate integration into the Nova Scotia community.
  • Access to healthcare: Permanent residents are eligible for public healthcare coverage in Nova Scotia.

Aspiring immigrants are encouraged to monitor updates from the NSPNP regarding the reopening of the Accommodation and Food Services sector for new applications.
