In 2015, at least 483. In 2016, around 100 so far. We don't know if these numbers relate only to NS Demand or if they are combined with NS Experience.
Skywalker, thanks for this information. In couple of sites it was mentioned that NSNP has annual allocation of 1350 for the year 2015 as well as for the year 2016. These numbers above are not even close. Any idea why?

That's the total for all NS provincial programs. For EE (NS Demand and NS Experience), we had 650 last year, after an increase of 300 spots in September. For this year, the actual number of EE spots wasn't officially disclosed, but we believe it will be the same of 2015, as we have the same total.

A July applicant got AOR yesterday with the message that NSOI are currently taking around 11 months to process an application. Please be mindful of that. Have pasted snippet from that mail below --


Thank you for your e-mail.
We can confirm your file was received on July 29, 2015. You will not be contacted by this office until your file reaches the first stage of processing which is completeness check and at this time that is taking 11 months or more.
Are you referring to this message as an AOR or there was another message. I'm asking because it's strange that a July 29 applicant had already received AOR when none of the early June have even received pre-AORs.

I think this is just a reciprocative message, not a pre-aor. As they already confessing that it takes 11 month to finally reach afyer completeness check.

Eleven (11)Months is ridiculous! How come they keep increasing? Do they want our EE profile to expire?? So sad about this NSOI's decision. Well, fingers crossed. :(

My bad for mentioning AOR, it was a query from an applicant from July.

The reason the duration has increased is probably due to the recent announcement where they have committed to increase the number of refugee intakes for 2016 to 44,000.

That stuff isn't an AOR rather the message you get when you quiz NSOI via the email about your application status. I got same mail 9months ago when I was curious about my application being received in NSOI. Hence, they comfirmed that it was but that I won't be contacted again until my application reaches processing and that it takes 6-8months. Now, this 11 months is just annoying.

Skywalker_RT or oksma....

Could you give me an contact email form NS, that I could contact, in order to obtain some information regarding my application.
However, would there be a problem, considering the fact that I do not know when exactly the application was received by NS (somewhere around 12 November-this is the date when my application was receiver by Canadian post office)

Thanks in advance :D

1 hour ago called to NSOI and asked a question regarding possible processing time. Now they call 11 months period to start reviewing received applications.
She mentioned that the Nova Scotia Demand Express Entry is on halt now, but did not give any clear reasons. Only one explanation, like "we received too much applications". But that is not the point...

Good luck to everyone with their expecations.

Thank you very much.
Just wanted a quick information.
Due to the fact that I don't know the exact date when the application has reached NS office would it be a problem for them to find it?

If you know the approximate date, I believe there won't be a problem.

You said earlier that your application was received in Canada by November or so by regular mail(ie Canada post office). So my question is how are you able to know the time the regular mail office in Canda received your application? I don't know but I guess you can track courier mails (e.g DHL etc). Dunno if someone made a direct posting for you in Canada or you did from your home country. So, assuming your app was received by Canada post office on the 1st of March 2016. Then be rest assured that it won't take more than 2days or so to deliver your parcel to NSOI. That may guide your intelligent guess.
