This program is for physicians with an approved offer from the Nova Scotia Health Authority or IWK Health Center to apply for nomination. 

How to apply?

Create an express entry profile through IRCC and then get a job offer from the NSHA (Nova Scotia Health Authority) or Izaak Walton Killam Hospital for Children (IWK). Once you received a letter of interest from Nova Scotia, you will need to submit your complete application to the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration (NSOI). If your application was successful, you will receive a nomination. After receiving a nomination, you will need to apply for a temporary work permit through IRCC, and in the meantime apply for permanent residence to IRCC.
