In 2020, our government approved a record number of applications for newcomers, continuing to increase our population growth and encouraging economic recovery in the years to come.

Focusing on skilled newcomers in essential services like health care and transportation, Nova Scotia is set to welcome over 3,500 migrants over the next few years, as the federal government processes applicants and travel restrictions are eased.

While the past year has been challenging for aspiring immigrants, our government knows that immigration will continue to play a key role in our economy and its recovery.
