Nova Scotia Launches New Stream of the Nominee Program for Physicians
This month has seen the launch of the Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities for Physicians as a distinct stream of the Nova Scotia Nominee Program.
The New Stream is applicable to foreign physicians who have both an Express Entry Profile and an approved offer with either the Nova Scotia Health Authority or the IWK Health Centre. It applies to general practitioners, family physicians and specialist physicians.
Candidates will receive a ‘letter of interest’ once the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration has notification of their Express Entry profile number and of the approved job opportunity with one of Nova Scotia’s health institutions. Furthermore, candidates must also provide a copy of a signed ‘Return for Service Agreement with the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness’ indicating a commitment to live and work in Nova Scotia for at least two years; have legal status in your present country of residence; demonstrate that you have sufficient funds to support yourself and your family in the move to Nova Scotia and also meet the work experience requirements of the Express Entry stream for which you have qualified. Applications must be submitted within 30 days of the date of the Letter of Interest.
Both the existing physician stream and Labour Market Priorities stream will remain in existence. The new Labour Market Priorities for Physicians will co-exist with these two other streams but the new stream will involve the selection of the immigration applications through the faster Express Entry system and this in turn will enable faster processing of physician immigration applications.
