These are the two ways, following one of which, a potential immigrant can get a NSPNP nomination for themselves:
- A foreign national who wants to work and live permanently in Nova Scotia, can start by submitting their EoI to the NSOI, that is Nova Scotia Office of Immigration. According to their score on the points grid, it will be decided whether they attain eligibility for applying under NSPNP. If they do receive a nomination, they can move forward by making themselves an Express Entry profile, while submitting details regarding their nomination.
- An applicant does have a second option, where they can create an Express Entry profile for themselves, and make their interest of working and permanently settling in Nova Scotia, officially known. The NSPNP officials would then contact individuals who they feel have the particular skills and enough experience to help their local economy grow. Furthermore, the applicant will also be able to include their Express Entry Profile ID when they submit their EoI, that is Expression of Interest. If these candidates do receive an ITA that is Invitation to Apply, they will have 600 points credited under the Comprehensive Ranking System, which will almost guarantee the applicant getting selected under the next draw for Express Entry.
