French Speaking Applicants Invited by Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia released the details of the second draw held by the Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities stream.  

Francophones were invited to the Express Entry-linked Labour Market Priorities stream by Nova Scotia.

Letter of Interest was issued to applicants who have selected French as their first official language. The minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score required was 9 or higher in all the attributes of language proficiency.

There was one more requirement to have a minimum CLB score of 7 in the English language as well. The educational requirement was to have a bachelor’s degree or a completed three-year program at a college or university. 

The applicants were also required to have a valid Express Entry number and also meet the minimum eligibility criteria of the Express Entry program as well.

The CRS score requirement was yet not made public for issuing the Letter of Interest. 

As we all know that CRS score is an evaluating tool that ranks an applicant’s profile based on factors like age, education, working experience, and language proficiency (English or French).

There is an additional 600 points awarded to every candidate’s profile for getting a provincial nomination. This boost in the CRS score effectively guarantees an invitation for Canada Permanent Residency (PR)

The applicants receiving the Letter of Interest must submit their application within the period of 60 days to the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP). The applicant is also required to provide copies of language tests and educational documents. 

Labour Market Priorities Stream is a program that allows provinces to search for eligible candidates from the Express Entry pool in order to meet the labour market requirement for Nova Scotia.  

NSNP has held around 16 Labour Market Priorities Stream draw since its launch in the year 2018 inclusive of this draw. Some of the occupations that were invited in this draw were financial auditors, social workers, accountants, nurses, carpenters, and some other occupations.
