Nova Scotia conducted its latest draw for its EE linked Labour Market Priorities stream on 20th March. The NSNP (Nova Scotia Nominee Program), however, did not specify the number of invitations issued.
The NSNP selects EE candidates who meet the province’s labour market needs through its Labour Market Priorities Stream. In the past, NSNP picked specific occupations like Accountants and Early Childhood Educators through this stream.
The 20th March draw extended invitations to those EE candidates who listed French as their first language. Eligible candidates had a score of CLB 7 or above in the French proficiency test. They also had to score at least CLB 5 or above on the English proficiency test as well.
Other eligibility requirements of the Labour Market Priorities Stream are:
- Candidates should at least hold a Bachelors degree or a 3-year or more study program. The program could be from any University, college, or any other educational institute.
- Should have submitted an online EE profile on or before 25th September 2018
Invited candidates need to submit their application for Provincial Nomination within 30 days of receiving the Letter of Interest. 600 additional CRS points are awarded to candidates who are approved for a provincial nomination.
The 20th March draw marked the 32nd International Day of La Francophonie. The province also launched the new Francophone immigration Action Plan on this occasion. The plan aims to encourage more French-speaking immigrants to migrate to the province of Nova Scotia.
3% to 4% of the population of Nova Scotia speaks French as their first language, as per CIC News. The new immigration plan will focus on attracting and retaining more French-speaking migrants in the province. It will also support these migrants to integrate into the community through its programs and services.
