Beginning at 9am (8 a.m. EST) on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry Category B will be accepting between 250-300 applications. They will be closing the application portal once the number has been reached.

The Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry stream selects highly skilled individuals who wish to live in Nova Scotia permanently. Applicants must have a good chance of quickly finding a job in Nova Scotia’s labour market.

The Nova Scotia Office of Immigration reserves the right to consider only certain types of occupations for nomination, depending on current labour market needs.

Category A (for applicants with a job offer) will remain open.
