Default Really want to move to Nova Scotia, advice please...

Hi myself and my family wish to move to Nova Scotia, we currently live in NZ but are wanting to re locate to an equally as beautiful part of the world that is a little closer to the UK. We have been doing lots of research of Canadian states and have decided NS looks like the place for us.

My partner is a Flooring Installer with over 10 years experience, I was wondering if his job would come under the construction trade category as it is not specified on it's own?? When we initially ,moved to NZ flooring was a trade that was needed but not on the shortage list, it seems to be a forgotten trade yet a very important one.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as if we cannot go via the skilled trade route would there be any other path we could take??

Thanks heaps Rachel.

Thanks heaps Rachel. P.S Is there any visa other than residency we could apply for so we come get to Canada and show we could settle in the community? Cheers.

Here is a link to nova scotia PNP programme, this is an alterntiave to the federal skilled worker route, there are some options, one you need a job to be able to apply, or there is the CI stream which is more community based.

Lots of info on their website here

Hope this helps
