Nova Scotia PNP welcomes over 1,400 immigrants

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.
