Social and community service workers invited in latest NSNP Labour Market Priorities Stream draw

Nova Scotia Nominee Program

In the latest Labour Market Priorities stream draw held on December 5th, Nova Scotia Nominee Program(NSNP) invited Express Entry candidates with work experience as social and community service workers. The occupation of the candidates invited in the latest draw is classified under National Occupation Classification(NOC) 4212-Social and Community Service Workers.

Through the Labour Market Priorities Stream, Nova Scotia selects candidates with specific work experience that is in demand in the province from the federal Express Entry pool and invites them to apply for provincial nomination. The December 5 Labour Market Priorities Stream draw is the sixth draw to be held under this stream in 2019. The earlier Labour Market Priorities draws had invited Express Entry candidates with work experience as nurses, carpenters, financial auditors and accountants.

The Express Entry candidates who successfully obtain provincial nomination through the Labour Market Priorities Stream and receive provincial nomination will also have 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) score points added to their total CRS score. It ensures them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada from the federal government in the subsequent Express Entry draw.

A job offer is not required for the candidate to be selected for invitation through the Labour Market Priorities stream. Those who receive invitation in a Labour Market Priorities stream draw may apply for provincial nomination within 30 days.
