Nova Scotia to accelerate immigration to reduce labour shortages

Nova Scotia has been attracting international students to improve and accelerate Canadian immigration and specifically recruit a high number of healthcare workers to meet the needs of the labor shortages.

Michelle Thompson, the Health Minister of Nova Scotia mentioned, “immigration alone can decrease the labor shortages since the province has declared to invest over $1 million  in the Newcomer Health Clinic.

Her intention is to modernize the procedure of licensing for healthcare workers trained internationally. These healthcare workers will be able to migrate to Canada and accelerate licensing and credential recognition.

The vacancies in the nursing sector have seen a rise of 219.8 percent in the first few months of 2022. This percentage has contributed to challenges faced by hospitals and healthcare workers.

Nova Scotia to license a deal with other provinces

Assigning more number of employees to work overtime, is considered one of the ways to reduce labor shortages in clinics and hospitals. The number of nurses who worked extra hours was paid the highest in July 2022 since 1997.

The Health Minister of Nova Scotia is looking forward to creating a shared system of licensing with other provinces of Canada and other Atlantic provinces.

Michelle Thompson also stated, “we are highly committed to creating this shared system, which may take up to five to six years of time and we are learning to understand how to take a step forward.”
