Through the province’s Labour Market Priorities stream, invitations were sent out.
On January 19, Nova Scotia invited immigration candidates to apply for a provincial permanent residence nomination via its Labour Market Priorities Stream.
How many invitations were given during the drawing was not disclosed by the Nova Scotia Candidate Program (NSNP).
The stream is connected with Express Entry. This means that, in the federal Express Entry scheme, those who have received invitations must have a clear profile. The NSNP is able to pick eligible applicants who meet provincial labour market needs from the Express Entry Entry pool.
In this draw, as a financial officer, applicants must have a primary occupation-National Occupation Classification (NOC) code 1114. The stream has targeted programmers and media creators, automotive industry employees as well as nurses in previous drawings.
Candidates must have received a Letter of Interest from the NSNP via Express Entry to obtain an invitation. Invited applicants must also have met the minimum standard of work experience for the Express Entry stream for which they are eligible, and must have sufficient money to settle in Nova Scotia and pay the necessary fees.
