Canada has ten provinces and three territories. Each province and territory except Nunavut has a bilateral agreement with the federal government. Bilateral agreements allow provinces and territories to conduct their own immigration programs to welcome economic class immigrants. Nova Scotia is called Ocean Playground because of its miles of pristine coastline from Canada. However, there are countless other reasons to opt for immigration and life in Nova Scotia. Immigrants from Nova Scotia can enjoy some unique advantages, especially those who want to immigrate as entrepreneurs and buy or start their own business.
In the 1990s, other Canadian provinces and territories also aspired to greater immigration autonomy in order to attract immigrants to meet their labour market needs, given their aging populations and low birth rates. This led to the launch of the Provincial Nominal Program (PNP). The PNP is an example of immigration programs tailored to the needs of certain regions of Canada. Canada also has federal immigration pilots that target regional and local labour market gaps, such as the Atlantic Immigration Pilot and the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot. 5.2. Canada and Nova Scotia recognize the importance of presenting a coordinated and cooperative approach to immigration as part of the pilot project and agree that promoting the pilot is a shared responsibility for potential applicants and employers. 1.4. Either Party may refer the matter to the Deputy Minister of the Department and the Assistant Minister(s) responsible for Immigration to Nova Scotia by sending written notice. 5.1.1.
The pilot is an innovative and flexible tool to increase sustainable immigration in a wide range of trades and skill levels (including Francophone immigrants) and to improve the link between these immigrants in the Atlantic region as a means of addressing demographic challenges and stimulating economic growth; Since 2003, ministers responsible for immigration have met annually during the longest period in Canadian history, during which both levels of government formally came together around a table to shape immigration policy. . . .
