Invitations were sent out through the province’s Labour Market Priorities stream.
Nova Scotia invited immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence through its Labour Market Priorities stream on January 19.
Congratulations to those who were selected in this draw!
The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) did not disclose how many invitations were issued in the draw.
The stream is linked with Express Entry. This means that those who received invitations must have a valid profile in the federal Express Entry system. The NSNP is able to select eligible candidates from the Express Entry Entry pool who meet provincial labour market needs.
In this draw, candidates must have a primary occupation as a financial officer – National Occupation Classification (NOC) code 1114. In previous draws, the stream has targeted programmers and media developers, automotive industry workers as well as nurses.
In order to receive an invitation, candidates must have received a Letter of Interest from the NSNP through Express Entry. Invited candidates must have also met the minimum work experience requirement for the Express Entry stream they are qualified for, and must have enough money to establish themselves in Nova Scotia, and pay the required fees.
To apply for provincial nomination, candidates are required to provide reference letters from their employers and must have at least four years of work experience as a financial officer. Candidates must have a bachelor’s degree or completed a program of at least three years at an educational institution.
They must also have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of 9 or higher in English. This is significantly higher than the last draw, when having a CLB score of 5 was sufficient.
Those who received an letter of invitation in today’s draw will have until February 18, 2021 to submit their application. Candidates are required to include a copy of their language tests, proof of education and proof of employment.
