Nova Scotia Welcomes Record Number of Immigrants 


As  Canadian immigration consultants in Vancouver, the team at Racer Immigration is pleased to report that Nova Scotia approved a record number of immigration applications in 2018, and is on track to welcome more new permanent residents than ever before.

Nova Scotia’s Office of Immigration reported that a total of 5,225 newcomers settled in the province between January 1 and October 31, 2018, and that has most likely surpassed 2016’s record of 5,485 landings by the end of the year. In addition, the province accepted 2,272 applications through its immigration programs this year.

“These numbers reflect the work we have done to attract international talent to our province,” Nova Scotia’s Immigration Minister said. “The success we are seeing will help increase access to important services, grow our population and strengthen our economy.”

The streams from which these candidates were chosen included those tied to Canada’s federal Express Entry system. Nova Scotia’s three Express Entry-linked streams—Nova Scotia Demand, Nova Scotia Experience and Labour Market Priorities—allow the province to invite eligible candidates to apply for permanent residence.

Immigration has been instrumental to Nova Scotia’s growth, which has been on an upward trend for the last three years
