MacDonell says the
government will be talking to experienced producers who are interested in
immigrating and setting up sustainable farming operations.

The project includes
developing detailed agriculture sector profiles, a website and a database of
available farmland in Nova Scotia.

It also involves hosting
information sessions in targeted countries and preparing profiles of Nova
Scotia and selected agricultural sectors.

The province's Office of
Immigration
will support the initiative by creating an agri-food sector pilot
stream.
