Nova Scotia’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) welcomed over 1,400 new immigrants to their province, with another 200 successful applicants under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot.
In a statement released by the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration, 2017 was a very successful year for the province.
“Helping newcomers immigrate and build lives here in Nova Scotia is a priority for the department and its settlement partners,” Immigration Minister Lena Metlege Diab said. “It is key to growing the province and its economy and I look forward to continuing this work in the new year.”
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a partnership with the federal government and the four Atlantic provinces aimed at filling labour shortages by inviting highly skilled workers to move to their provinces.
