Citizenship of Nominees

The Department of Labour, Skills and Immigration (LSI) issues nomination certificates to prospective immigrants who meet a labour market need and who will make a contribution to Nova Scotia’s economy. Nominees then apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada for a permanent resident visa.

Applicants are attracted to the Nova Scotia Nominee Program from around the world. This dataset provides the number of nomination certificates issued annually by citizenship of the applicant.

The maximum number of nomination certificates that LSI may issue annually through the Nova Scotia Nominee Program is determined by the federal government.
