The Department of Labour, Skills, and Immigration is requesting your assistance with a Labour Mobility survey (link below). This survey only applies to individuals that were licensed or certified in another Province in Canada prior to applying for licensing in Nova Scotia through a credential review.

Note: Valid Licence or Certification from another regulatory body means that you held certification (ie: Red Seal), a licence, registration, or any other form of official documentation issued by a regulatory body in Canada. This does not include a diploma or certificate issued by a public or private college or school or business.

Subject: Introducing the Labour Mobility Consultation

The Department of Labour, Skills and Immigration would like to hear from you about your experience with labour mobility in Nova Scotia.

Labour mobility plays an important role in supporting a strong workforce in Nova Scotia. Understanding the challenges and opportunities associated with labour mobility requires a collaborative and informed approach. That’s why we are reaching out to you to ask for your feedback.

Please complete this survey to tell us:

“What is the biggest challenge you face when recruiting people, and/or moving, from another province or territory in Canada to work in Nova Scotia? How can government help?” Click here for more information.

Attached to this email, you will find a Consultation Factsheet which provides an overview of the Labour Mobility Consultation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Thank you for your time. We look forward to hearing more about your experiences.
