Nova Scotia selects social and community service workers from the Express Entry pool
On December 5, 2019, the Canadian province, Nova Scotia invited immigration candidates through its Express entry linked Labour Market Priorities Stream. In the draw, it issued invitations to eligible social and community service workers having a profile in the Express Entry pool to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. Previous draws this year have issued invitations to Express Entry candidates with eligible work experience as nurses, carpenters, financial auditors and accountants, among others.
The Canadian province Nova Scotia operates its Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) to nominate eligible prospects with appropriate skills and work experience for Canadian permanent residence. Till date, NSNP has eight immigration pathways to meet the needs of the province’s market. In the previous year, it successfully marked a record for the entry of immigrants as new permanent residents in the province.
Labor Market Priorities Stream is an express entry linked immigration program which allows the province to nominate the eligible candidates from federal Express Entry pool for measuring up the shortage of labor in the market. Federal Express Entry system manages the pool for applications coming from its three economic immigration categories including Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class. This stream targets eligible candidates with required skills and experience to meet the shortage of labor in the market.
