Nova Scotia welcomed a total of 312 Express Entry applicants with work experience as early childhood educators and assistants in the latest draw on June 3. The invitations were awarded under the Labor Market Priorities Stream allowing the province to search for the Express entry pool for applicants with work experience in an occupation presently facing a shortage in the province.
Nova Scotia, Canada’s most famous province on the country’s picturesque Atlantic coast, last year welcomed vast fresh permanent residents in the province and many of them were through the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP).
The Nova Scotia Nominee Program is the area’s approved program used to assign a fixed number of immigration applicants for permanent residency every year under the eight streams tailored to the province’s financial needs and specifications. Among all the eight streams, three come under the Express Entry system that tracks the pool of candidates in the major categories of economic-class immigration – the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class, and the Canadian Experience Class.
Express Entry applicants receiving a provincial nomination from Nova Scotia earn an extra 600 points for their general CRS score and automatically receive an invitation to apply for escalation of Canadian permanent residence. You need to enter a profile in the Express Entry pool to get consideration for a provincial nomination through the Labor Market Priorities Stream of Nova Scotia. This was the second draw through the Labor Market Priorities Stream to target applicants with work involvement in NOC 4214-Early Childhood Educators and Assistants for express entry.
a) You must submit proof of post-secondary schooling for kids between 0 and 8 years of age in early childhood education;
b) Evidence of completion of a two-year or more program at a university, college, commercial or technical school, or other institution ; and
c) Employers ‘ letter of reference citing evidence of at least five years of work experience in NOC 4214.
The NSNP also stated that their Express Entry profile was lodged on or after August 8, 2018 by the applicants chosen on June 3. In August 2018, the Labor Market Priorities stream was implemented and used four times so far. In addition to early childhood educators, this stream also targeted economic auditors and accountants with French as their first official language, as well as express entry applicants.
