Nova Scotia offering a Brief Opportunity.Nova Scotia has reopened one of its most popular Express Entry-linked immigration categories for up to 225 new applicants on November 17. Popular by the name of Category B of the Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry Steam, it is one of four immigration pathways that allow the Atlantic Canada province to nominate candidates in the federal government’s Express Entry system for Canadian permanent residence. Category B is popular with Express Entry candidates because it does not require a job offer or Canadian work experience in order to apply. It also does not require a minimum Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking Score, which is used to determine a candidate’s rank in the Express Entry pool. It functions on a first-come, first-served basis and applicants who obtain a nomination from Nova Scotia are awarded an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System points. This leaves candidates well-positioned for an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residence in a future Express Entry draw. 

 

Nova Scotia has updated their target occupation list. To be eligible for Category B of the NSDEE you must have one year of continuous full-time work in one of the following in-demand occupations:

 

Occupation Title NOC Skill

 

Financial auditors and accountants 1111 A

 

Other financial officers 1114 A

 

Professional occupations in advertising, marketing and public relations 1123 A

 

Administrative assistants 1241 B

Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses 3012 A

 

Licensed practical nurses 3233 B

 

College and other vocational instructors 4021 A

 

Paralegal and related occupations 4211 B

 

To become eligible for Category B of the Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry Stream, individuals must also:

 

Have a profile registered in Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry system;

Have their foreign education credentials assessed, authenticated, and given an equivalent value in Canada by one of the four designated credential assessment agencies;

Demonstrate, by way of a standardized language test acceptable to the governments of Canada and Nova Scotia, at least an adequate intermediate language proficiency in English or French (Canadian Language Benchmark) CLB 7; and
