The latest Nova Scotia draw invites Express Entry candidates through the Labour Market Priorities Stream.

The Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) issued new invitations on 1 December 2020 to apply for a nomination to Canadian permanent residence. The NSNP did not specify the number of ITAs (Invitations to Apply) that were issued in the draw.

Coming Through the Express Entry Pool

These candidates came through the Express Entry linked Labour Market Priorities immigration stream. 

In order to fulfill demand, the Labour Market Priorities Stream allows NSNP to search for eligible candidates in the federal Express Entry pool.

Eligibility Criteria

ITAs issued on 1 December went to eligible candidates having a full-time skilled work job offer from a Nova Scotia employer.

  • The job offer needs to be valid for at least one year after the permanent resident visa is issued.
  • A full-time job offer means at least 30 hours of work per week and throughout the year.
  • One year of skilled work relating to the job category is necessary to apply.
  • The education requirement for candidates is a Canadian secondary school diploma or equivalent.
  • The selected Express Entry candidates are required to have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of 5 or more in English or French. 


Candidates having received the ITA in this draw have 30-days time to complete the application and submit it to NSNP.

Ensure that you submit a copy of the job offer letter, proof of education and language proficiency tests along with the application.

Add 600 CRS Points

Express Entry candidates receiving a provincial nomination are awarded 600 CRS points. This will guarantee them an opportunity to receive an ITA in the subsequent Express Entry draw.

Past NSNP Draws

Draws held earlier through the stream have targeted nurses, automotive technicians, and media developers to meet the needs of the labour market in the province.
