Nova Scotia set to expand immigration opportunities for foreign nationals in healthcare professions

Certain foreign nationals will soon be able to immigrate to Nova Scotia through the expansion of one stream within the local Provincial Nominee Program.

This move will make immigration to Nova Scotia a possibility for international students who want to become paramedics and pharmacy technicians.

Announced jointly by Nova Scotia’s Minister of Health, Michelle Thompson, and the province’s Minister of Advanced Education Brian Wong, this change is taking effect because Nova Scotia is set to expand the “International Graduates in Demand” (IGD) stream of its PNP.

Now international graduates seeking work in the following occupations could immigrate to Nova Scotia through this PNP stream: nurse aides, orderlies, and patient service associates, early childhood educators and assistants, paramedics and pharmacy technicians are now eligible thanks to this announcement.
