Nova Scotia Sends Out Invitations through the Labour Market Priorities Stream to EE Candidates

Nova Scotia sent out new invitations to apply for a nomination for Canadian PR. This was on December 1 through the EE-linked Labour Market Priorities immigration stream.

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) did not state the number of invitations that were issued in the draw.

The Labour Market Priorities Stream (LMPS) permits the NSNP to explore the federal EE pool for suitable applicants. These candidates should fulfill the labor market requirements of the province.

Some of the targets of past draws, through this stream, include automotive industry workers, nurses, and programmer and media developers.

On December 1, all the invitations issued were for suitable EE applicants. All of them had a full-time skilled work job offer from an employer in Nova Scotia.

It is also important for the applicant to have an employment offer for a minimum of one year. This is after the issue of the permanent resident visa. The term “full-time” refers to being in employment year-round and for a minimum of 30 hours each week.

It is important for a candidate to have a minimum of a year’s skilled, job-related work experience. They should be in possession of a Canadian secondary school diploma or something equivalent.

All the EE candidates who had a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of a minimum of 5 in English or French were targeted.

Recipients of a letter of invitation in the December 1 draw will have 30 calendar days to submit a complete application to NSNP.

It is mandatory for candidates to include a copy of their language tests. They also need to attach a copy of their job offer and proof of education with their application.

Application Chosen from EE Pool

It is important for candidates to have a profile in the EE system. This will help them receive consideration for a provincial nomination from Nova Scotia through the LMPS.

EE manages all the applications for Canadian PR through three federal immigration programs:

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  2. Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  3. Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is used to rank the Express Entry candidates. They receive points that is based on various factors, like:

  • Age
  • Work experience
  • Language ability in French or English
  • Education

EE candidates with a provincial nomination will automatically receive an extra 600 CRS points. This will ensure that they receive an ITA in a subsequent EE draw.
