Immigrate to Canada without a Job Offer | Nova Scotia Nominee Program

Immigrating to Canada is an aspiration for many. However, depending on your situation, you may face certain hurdles along the way. Depending on your intended purposes to Canada, Citizenship and Immigration Canada will review your qualifications in the areas of:

  • Work Experience
  • Educational Experience
  • Language Proficiency
  • Employability
  • Adaptability

Many people wish to have the opportunity to work and make centralized a way of living in Canada but face difficulty finding a job offer. In order to qualify for a document, such as a Work Permit, a foreign national first needs to obtain a job offer from a Canadian employer.

For many, this is close to impossible to do from overseas, regardless of their skill or educational level. For those who are facing issues finding a job offer, there is still hope.

As of March 6, 2014 a new program has recently opened through the Provincial Nomination Program offered by Nova Scotia that facilitates your Permanent Residence in Canada without the need for a job offer. The only catch is that your employment falls under the list of currently in demand occupations in the province.
