Nova Scotia Immigration has provided information on its most recent business immigration draw, in which 22 invitations were issued through two streams of the Nova Scotia Nominee Program. The Entrepreneur stream received 20 invites in the December 22nd draw, with a minimum score of 119. It also witnessed the issuance of two invites through the International Graduate Entrepreneur stream, this time with a minimum score of 53 points.
The Nova Scotia Entrepreneur stream seeks people with previous company ownership or senior management experience in Nova Scotia. They must reside in Nova Scotia, create a new business or purchase an existing one, and actively engage in the day-to-day administration of that firm.
Candidates in the Entrepreneur stream are given a temporary work visa before applying for Canadian permanent residency after a year of running their firm. The stream employs an Expression of Interest structure, in which individuals from a pool are asked to apply.

The International Graduate Entrepreneur stream is comparable to the Entrepreneur stream, however, it is reserved for recent graduates of a Nova Scotia institution or community college. They must have created or bought a Nova Scotia firm and run it for a year while holding a Post-Graduation Work Permit.
If a candidate intends to settle in the province, he or she is nominated for permanent residency. The stream operates similarly to the Entrepreneur stream, using an Expression of Interest format.
