Nova Scotia in Demand Occupation List - 2023

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) is one of the key Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) of Canada. The occupations listed on Nova Scotia High Demand occupation list, help you apply for the relevant streams of Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) to apply for Permanent Resident (PR) Visa nomination to live, work or settle in Nova Scotia, Canada.

This page describe the most promising occupations over the 2021-2023 period. Occupations are organized by broad occupational category.

Note: Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) has switched to new TEER based NOC 2021 Occupation system with effect from November 16, 2022. Hence, NSNP has adopted new 5-digit codification system for the relevant occupations under NOC 2021.

Language requirement for eligible TEER categories

To apply you must:

  • Have one year of work experience related to the job. Workers in TEER category 4 or 5 of the NOC 2021 (must already have six months’ experience with the employer.)
  • Prove language ability equal to CLB Level 5 if you are in a NOC TEER category 0, 1, 2, or 3 occupation. If your first language is English or French, that is enough proof. Workers in a NOC TEER category 4 or 5 occupation must have test results to prove they meet CLB 4 even if their first language is English or French
