County Where Nominees Intend to Settle

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.

In most cases, nominees inform LSI of their intended county of residence at the time of application. Many applicants may already be living in that location as a temporary resident when they apply to become a permanent resident. This dataset provides the number of nomination certificates issued annually broken down into intended county of settlement.

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