Healthcare Professionals Immigration

Candidates who received a Letter of Interest from Nova Scotia on March 8, 2024, are invited to the physician draw for the Healthcare Professionals Immigration Pilot, specifically for Nova Scotia’s Practice Ready Assessment Program (PRAP). Completing this process may result in a conditional job offer from a Nova Scotia healthcare employer, enabling the application to the Physician streams under the Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program (NS PNP) or the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP). It is important to note that participation in the Pilot and nomination under a non-Express Entry stream or endorsement under the AIP will not add 600 points to applicants’ Express Entry profiles.
