Native Language 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.

Nominees must demonstrate proficiency in English or French in order to be eligible for nomination, but they often have a native language that is neither English nor French. This dataset provides the the number of certificates issued annually by the native language of the nominees.

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