Provincial Nominee Program from Nova Scotia released the details of its Labour Market Priorities Stream nomination draws held in February 08. The province seemed to prioritize Canada immigration for Nurses in its new provincial draws.
Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) issued 278 Letters of Interest to Canada Express Entry candidates having at least 3 years of professional work experience as registered nurses or registered psychiatric nurses. They are expected to fulfil the criteria under the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 3012 to get provincial nominations.
These foreign-trained nurses were expected to have a qualifying Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of 9 in all English or French abilities (reading, writing, listening, and speaking).
The invited candidates have 60 calendar days to submit a complete application along with proof of claimed proficiencies to NSNP for successfully getting their provincial nomination certificate.
Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program Targets 25,000 Newcomers Each Year
The Atlantic province attracts foreign talent with specialized skills or occupations that match identified labor shortages. The province also seeks to retain international students after they graduate from any institution in the province.
The Atlantic province now aims to attract 25,000 newcomers per year. With the province’s current immigration retention rate at 71 per cent, the ambitious target seems achievable.
Apart from operating its Provincial Nominee Program to attract skilled immigrants, Nova Scotia also selects eligible candidates through the federal Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP).
The excitement around the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) is at an all-time high as Canada recently made it a permanent federal immigration program. It will open doors for additional 6,000 eligible candidates to apply for Canada permanent residency annually.
Canada Immigration for Nurses Through Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program
Ever since the launch of the Canada Express Entry system in 2015, all the Provincial Nominee Programs are categorized into two streams: ‘enhanced’ & ‘base’ streams.
‘Enhanced’ stream allows foreign-trained nurses registered in the federal pool to be considered for provincial nominations. This guarantees Canada permanent residency as additional 600 points are added to their overall qualifying score. In fact, the latest Canada Express Entry draw invited a record-breaking 1070 candidates with provincial nominations to apply for permanent residency.
