Nova Scotia invited 278 nurses, who had profiles in the Federal Express Entry system, to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian Permanent Residency in new immigration draw held on February 8, 2021.
Invitations, also known as Letters of Interest (LOIs), were issued to candidates who may be eligible for the Nova Scotia Nominee Program’s (NSNP) Labour Market Priorities Stream.
To get the nomination from NSNP, invited candidates need to:
- have a primary occupation as a registered nurse or registered psychiatric nurse (NOC 3012);
- CLB score of 9 or higher in English or French in all language abilities;
- have at least three years of experience in their occupation;
- provide letters of reference from employers to demonstrate their Work experience; and
- hold a bachelors degree or have completed a three-year study program at a post-secondary institution
The Nova Scotia’s Labour Market Priorities Stream of NSNP targets immigration candidates based on the province’s labour market needs.
In order to qualify for a provincial nomination from Nova Scotia through this stream, candidates first need to have a valid profile in the Federal Express Entry system.
Candidates, who received an LAA in this draw, now have to submit their complete application for provincial nomination to NSNP before midnight on March 10. Successful candidates will be awarded an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. This will increase their chances to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in subsequent Express Entry Draw.
