Welcome to Employment Nova Scotia

We want to:

  • Help Nova Scotians meet their full employment potential
  • Help employers find the employees they need to prosper
  • Help communities play an active role in developing well-balanced local labour markets.

We will achieve these goals through programming offered under the Canada-Nova Scotia Labour Market Development Agreement and Labour Market Agreement, and other programs across the Department of Labour and Advanced Education, and other federal and provincial organizations.
