What You Need to Know

Eligibility

While all individuals classified under NOC 31209 received an invitation, only those with podiatrist experience should apply. If you don't have work experience but somehow received an invitation, do not apply as you are not eligible.


Next Steps

If you meet the eligibility requirements and wish to proceed, please complete the survey linked below to express your interest in becoming a podiatrist in Nova Scotia. This survey is part of an employment facilitation process managed by the Nova Scotia Office of Healthcare Professionals Recruitment. The information you provide will be shared with potential employers in the sector.

Conditional Job Offers and Immigration Programs

Receiving a conditional job offer from a Nova Scotia healthcare employer can open doors to applying for the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) or the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP).


**Please note:** Only podiatrists who received a Letter of Interest from Nova Scotia in their Express Entry profile on June 11, 2024, are eligible for the podiatrist draw.


Understanding Your Immigration Pathway

Your Express Entry profile will remain active in the federal Express Entry pool. However, the Healthcare Professionals Immigration Pilot provides a pathway for permanent residency through non-Express Entry streams, such as the NSNP or AIP. This means you will not receive the additional 600 points in your Express Entry profile typically associated with provincial nominations.


For healthcare professionals not eligible for the podiatrist draw, we encourage you to explore other immigration programs available through Nova Scotia. More information can be found on the Nova Scotia Immigration website.

A Reminder of the Importance of an Express Entry Profile

The fortunate podiatrists who received Letters of Interest would not have been considered without an active Express Entry profile. The Province of Nova Scotia focused on applicants with relevant work experience rather than Comprehensive Ranking Scores (CRS) in this draw. Qualified candidates are now on the path to securing a job offer in Canada and, eventually, permanent residence.


If you aspire to immigrate to Canada, having an Express Entry profile is crucial. It significantly enhances your chances of being selected by Canadian provinces looking for qualified candidates. If you are unsure how to create an Express Entry profile, contact us. Our team of consultants will help you understand the eligibility requirements and assist you in creating your profile.


Canadian provinces continue to rely on the Express Entry system to identify qualified candidates. Ensure you have a valid Express Entry profile to increase your chances of becoming a permanent resident in Canada.
