After you graduate

An international graduate from a Canadian college or university, who has a valid post-graduation work permit and a job offer from a Nova Scotian employer, can apply for permanent residency through the Nova Scotia Nominee Program’s Skilled Worker stream.

The Skilled Worker stream helps employers recruit and hire foreign workers for positions they’ve been unable to fill with permanent residents or Canadian citizens.

If you have any questions please contact the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration.

For information on federal post-graduation work permits please visit the Citizenship Immigration Canada (CIC) website.
