New Stream of Immigration In Nova Scotia

The province of Nova Scotia recently announced the introduction of a new stream to their Provincial Nominee program under the ‘Agri-Food Sector’.  Currently, Nova Scotia has almost 30% of its land dedicated to agricultural purposes. It is estimated that there is over 1.6 million hectare of land available in Nova Scotia for farming and pasture, which is good news for young farmers wishing to immigrate to Canada

Some requirements for applicants under the new Argi-Food program include:

  • must be between the ages of 21 and 55
  • have completed the equivalent to a Canadian high school diploma with a minimum of 12 years of education and/or training from a recognized institution and/or authority
  • provide proof of sufficient English or French language proficiency
  • plan to establish a farm, purchase a farm or become partner in an existing farm business
