Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities draw invites 204 candidates
204 Express Entry candidates received invitations through New Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities draw. The latest draw, which held in September 4, was the first since June 3 this year and overall the fourth in 2019.
The province of Nova Scotia conducted the first Labor Market Priorities draw in three months since June. 204 Express Entry candidates received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination to become a Canadian permanent resident.
The main target of the Labor Market Priorities Stream is eligible candidates, in the Express Entry pool, for the Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program who meets classified labor market needs in the province.
The stream was launched in 2018 and until now has invited many individuals including childhood education workers, financial auditors and as well as accountants.
The last draw mainly targeted the applicants in the Express Entry pool who have chosen their first official language as French. In addition, candidates had to have a Canadian Language Benchmark score of 8 in French for all the 4 proficiency skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Applicants who have been choosing also had to hold a CLB score a minimum of 6 or higher in all four skills in English. Additionally, they must hold either a bachelor’s degree or have completed a program of three years at a college, university or technical school.
According to the statement by the spokesperson of NSNP, there was no requirement for a minimum Compherensice Ranking System.
Generally, a CRS score defines your position in the Express Entry pool and is based on several factors including age, education credential, skilled work experience and also proficiency in English or French.
Having a provincial nomination gives Express Entry candidates an additional 600 points towards their current CRS score which, in turn, effectively guarantees to receive an invitation to apply during the subsequent Express Entry draw.
