Express Entry in Nova Scotia Reopened
Nova Scotia PNP Accepted More Candidates
The Express Entry stream in Nova Scotia was open very briefly at the weekend. The local government opened the door for between 175-225 applications on Saturday the 9th December. The stream, which works on a first through the door basis reached optimum intake very quickly. Due to this, in future prospective candidates should be prepared and have all their relevant paperwork nearby. Also ensure that the paperwork is up to date and relevant to the application. The Nova Scotia Demand Express Entry stream, known as the NSDEE is a visa stream that is specifically for immigrants with a degree or postgraduate study to get work in Nova Scotia’s job market.
Another option is for skilled workers who have at least one year’s full time experience in an in demand field. This is known as a Category B application. Applicants must have their profile in the Express Entry stream, as well as the year’s experience and a score of 67 points. Additionally they must be educated to high school level and have enough money to enable them to settle in the Canadian province. Applicants must also be able to show that they can speak English and/or French to at least Canadian Language Benchmark 7. In demand occupations for this Canadian visa programme include accounting clerks, administrative assistants, civil engineers, registered nurses, both general and psychiatric, financial auditors, computer programmers, paralegals and college instructors among other jobs. This programme allows Nova Scotia to attract candidates within three economic classes, namely the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC), the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC).
People who apply for a Canadian visa via the Express Entry pool are given CRS points based on their academic qualifications, work experience, age and even marital status. If they also get a provincial nomination, they are given an extra 600 points, which greatly enhances their chance of being sent an ITA for permanent residence in Canada. Other candidates who are eligible to apply via the NSDEE are those candidates who have already been offered a job by a local employer in an in demand occupation. If you feel that you may be eligible for the Nova Scotia Demand Express Entry Stream, then Canadian visa reviews suggests you speak to a regulated Canadian immigration consultant to help prepare your case for Canadian citizenship.
