Nova Scotia Targets 430 Registered Nurses for PR in the Latest Draw

Nova Scotia targets 430 Registered Nurses for PR in the latest draw
Candidates who have work experience as registered nurses or registered psychiatric nurses were invited in the provincial draw held on October 28th by the province of Nova Scotia to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa.

430 candidates that were invited had a profile in the Federal government’s Express Entry Program. It is a point-based immigration program that manages the profile of the candidates who have applied for Canada PR through Canada’s three major skilled immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.

Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program (NSNP) has a stream that is in line with the Express Entry program – Labour Market Priorities Stream. This stream allows the province to search for skilled immigrants in the express pool with required work experience in an occupation that is in-demand in the province.

If an express entry candidate gets the provincial nomination certificate, they are awarded 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). These many points effectively make sure that the candidate gets the ITA and apply for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

There was no minimum CRS score required in this provincial draw.

In the year 2019, this was the fifth provincial draw that targeted a specific occupation. With previous draws targeting candidates with work experience as carpenters, early childhood educators, financial auditors and accountants, and French-speaking Express Entry candidates.

Invited nurses in the latest draw, have to meet the following criteria:

  • Have a primary occupation of the registered nurse or registered psychiatric nurse (NOC 3012)
  • Have three years or more of work experience as a registered nurse or registered psychiatric nurse supported with letter of reference from employers
  • Have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level of 8 or higher in either English or French in all four abilities
  • Hold a bachelor’s degree or have completed a program of three years or more at a university, college, trade or technical school, or another institute
  • Have an Express Entry profile that was submitted in the pool on or after November 1, 2018

Candidate has 30 days to submit their completed application to the provincial office of Nova Scotia from the day of getting the invitation.
