Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP)
Nova Scotia is one of 10 provinces and three territories of Canada, located on the East Coast and it is almost completely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Halifax, the Province’s capital city is a major international seaport and transportation centre as well as the economic and cultural hub of the region. No point in Nova Scotia is more than 60 km from the sea. The population is approximately 940,000 and English is the official language, although Nova Scotians of Acadian heritage speak French.
The province is located within the Atlantic Standard Time Zone (AST) four hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time (EST). The weather in Nova Scotia is moderate and has four distinct seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall.
Through the NSNP, prospective immigrants who have the skills and experience targeted by Nova Scotia may be nominated to immigrate.
