Province of Nova Scotia invited the express entry candidates who have applied for provincial nomination via Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program (NS PNP) with eligible work experience as early childhood educators and assistants in the draw held on June 3rd.
These candidates were invited by issuing invitations by Labour Market Priorities Stream. This stream of NS PNP allows the province to search for the candidates with the required work experience in an occupation that has a shortage in the local labor market of the province in the express pool of the federal government’s express entry program.
Nova Scotia’s provincial nominee program – NSNP allows the province to nominate immigrants for Canada permanent resident status each year via its eight streams that are tailored to specific economic needs in the province.
Express entry program is a point-based program that manages the profiles of immigrants who have applied under Canada’s three skilled immigration programs:
Express entry candidate with a provincial nomination is awarded 600 CRS points which makes sure that the candidate is able to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) via which they are able to apply for Canada PR visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Being in the express pool is the very first step that allows the candidate to be considered for a provincial nomination through NSNP’s Labour Market Priorities Stream.
