The new Labor Market Priorities Stream of Nova Scotia issued invitations to attract Express Entry candidates who have eligible work experience as an Early Childhood Educator or as an assistant.
Totally 314 invitations were issued to candidates in the federal EE pool. The norm was having two years of work experience in NOC 4214.
Lynette Macleod, spokesperson of the Immigration Office says that the CRS of a candidate was not a selection factor.
EE candidates receiving a Letter of Interest presently have 30 days for submitting a complete application.
Nova Scotia announced the creation of the Labor Market Priorities Stream, with the intention of using it to invite candidates who meet labor shortages identified by the market to apply seeking the provincial nomination.
Express Entry Program observes the candidates profiles in the Federal Skilled Trades Class, the FSWC, and for the program of the Canadian Experience Class. The candidates gaining the approval for provincial nomination from the province get extra 600 points. With this increase in CRS score they move ahead to get the invitation to apply seeking permanent residence.
Attracting necessary skilled workers helps the people to increase access to services like Early Childhood Education. This measure also improves their life. It strengthens the communities and benefits the provincial economy.
The Office of Immigration says that this stream is flexible and the specified occupations will vary from each draw depending on the needs. This stream is a fine example of innovation in Nova Scotia. The existence of 30-day window to submit the application reminds the applicants to be active and prepare their documents in time. The first step for all candidates is to submit a profile in the EE system.
