Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program: Entrepreneur Stream

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program is administered by the NS Office of Immigration, in partnership with the federal government of Canada. The purpose of the NSNP is to increase immigration to NS, to meet NS’s demographic, labour, and economic goals.

The NSNP uses the Expression of Interest (EOI) model for file submission and selection. Under this points-based model, an EOI profile will first be created for each Applicant, and the Government will select Applicants from this pool. Those with the highest points and greatest potential to become economically established in NS will be selected and invited to apply to the NSNP.
