Nova Scotia Increases 2022 immigrant intake to 75%

In 2021, Nova Scotia welcomed 9,025 new permanent residents, a new high that was 19 percent more than the previous peak in 2019. To spur economic growth, the province continues to invest extensively in immigration schemes.

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) and the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) allocations for 2022 have been verified by Nova Scotia. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has increased the number of province nominations to 5,340 and added 1,173 more endorsement spots to the AIP, an increase of 75% over 2021. The Immigration Levels Plan is used by IRCC to establish the number of allocations each year.
