The Atlantic province of Canada, Nova Scotia has already set an immigration record for 2022, even though the year is yet to end.
According to a recent report by the province’s public accounts committee, Nova Scotia has already welcomed 10,670 new permanent residents in the first 9 months of 2022.
“That is more than any previous year and we still have three months remaining in the calendar year for processing,” said provincial Deputy Immigration Minister Ava Czapalay.
Based on this trend, the total number could increase to a total of 14,227 permanent residents by the end of 2022. It is 55.4 percent more or 5,042 new permanent residents settling in Nova Scotia than in 2021.
