The Canadian province of Nova Scotia had a recent draw conducted on April 27, 2020, to invite Express Entry candidates with skill in the French language. The invitation was for eligible candidates to apply for permanent residence via the Labor Market Priorities stream.
The Labor Market Priorities stream allows the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) to look for eligible candidates in Canada’s Express Entry pool. They must match the labor market needs in Nova Scotia.
This eastern province of Canada has a few highly desirable qualities that make it a special place to migrate to. It has a quality of life to offer that is as much and even better than the USA. The province has great natural attractions and is highly suitable for family life. Besides, the province has the virtue of affordable living with the lowest living costs in Canada.
So, as the province needed more skilled labor, they conducted the draw that invited candidates with specific traits like:
- Candidates with a CLB (Canadian Language Benchmark) score of at least 8 in French and 6 in English
- Candidates who had selected French as their first official language
- Candidates with a valid Express Entry number
- Candidates with a bachelor’s degree or a 3-year program completed at a college, university, technical school or trade school
- Candidates who have met the minimum criteria to be taken into the pool
The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is not yet confirmed. The CRS score, calculated based on factors such as education, work experience, age, and language skills is essential in Canada immigration. Having a provincial nomination will give the candidate a guarantee to get invited to apply for a Canada PR immigration visa. This is because 600 points will get added to their basic score.
Those who got a Letter of Interest (LOI) in this draw are given 60 days to submit their completed applications to NSNP. They must also submit copies of their language test results and proof of education.
The list of professionals invited in the draw includes:
- Financial auditors
- Early childhood education workers
- Social workers and nurses
