2019-09-16 – Nova Scotia immigration has launched a new Express Entry-linked Labour Market Priorities for Physicians stream.

The new Nova Scotia Nominee Program stream allows the province to select candidates who are qualified doctors from the federal Express Entry pool.

The stream specifically targets two National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes:

  1. NOC 3112: Family Physicians
  2. NOC 3111: Specialist Physicians

Candidates must have an approved job offer from Nova Scotia Health Authority or the IWK Health Centre in order to receive a Letter of Interest from the NSNP.

The new stream compliments the existing Physicians stream, which is not linked to Express Entry.
