International students ejected from fast track as NS restricts NSEEE program

CBC reports that the Government of Nova Scotia government will be adding new restrictions to the Nova Scotia Experience: Express Entry (NSEEE) program. Previously, international students who graduated from schools in other provinces were permitted to apply for permanent residence through NSEEE if they worked for 12 months in NS in a designated job. Now, the program will now be restricted to graduates of NS postsecondary institutions. CBC reports that this creates an issue for many student workers in the province, as well as for employers who risk losing employees to the change. “I had just two days left for my experience,” said graduate Rahul Kumar. “They just said it’s effective immediately.” CBC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
