The Family Business Worker stream of the NSNP allows employers to hire family members or close relations as international skilled workers. For this, it is compulsory that the foreign workers are skillful. They must be entitled to fill the positions that the Nova Scotia employers are finding it hard to provide with the local Canadians (permanent residents or Canadian citizens). To be entitled for this stream, applicants have to have an assured, permanent employment offer from a Nova Scotia employer. This employer must either be a family member or he can also be linked closely, running a winning business in the province of Nova Scotia.
An applicant must be a relative of the business owner. He/she can be the business owner’s children, siblings, niece or nephew, aunt or uncle or even grandchild.
In order to qualify and apply under this category, the applicants must:
•Have a job offer which is permanent and full-time in nature from a Nova Scotia employer, which of course must belong to a family member or relative.
•Be qualified with work experience, trained with skills which are transferable. He must have the relevant license or accreditation which is needed for the job.
•Have lawful status in the country which he is residing.
•Willing to migrate and settle down forever in Nova Scotia.
•Have enough supports for the purpose of settlement.
•Have the relevant academic background, language skills, work experience, appropriate age and so on for the particular stream.
It is notable that priority is given to applicants where in it could be proved by the family employer that they could cater to more supports to provide for the former and the accompanying dependents with their settlement needs.
Simultaneously, with such a program in place, it would be easier for those planning to immigrate to have enhanced options post immigration. Like this, the immigrant would previously have a job in prior which caters to his immediate needs. So, he would be monetarily secure to support self and family. Above all, it is always better to immigrate with known contacts abroad which would definitely make the process for settlement easier for the migrant and his family.
