Nova Scotia Demand Express Entry Stream Reopened Briefly on Weekend

Category B of the Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry immigration stream reopened briefly on Saturday, December 9th.

The Government of Nova Scotia stated that nearly 175 to 225 application will be accepted in the latest opening of the Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry (NSDEE).

As has happened earlier, the intake limit was reached within no time, as the NSDEE works on a first-come, first-served basis.

Looking at this trend, aspiring immigrants who want to apply for this stream will have to prepared before hand with all their documentations ready. This is the only way they can apply for this stream before the intake cap is reached.

The NSDEE has been specially designed for individuals who are highly-skilled and have a post-secondary education and the qualifications to successfully integrate in the labor market of Nova Scotia.

Category B: Paid Work Experience of at least one year of continuous fill-time or a similar amount of part-time paid work experience in the past six years in one of the Opportunity Occupations.

Opportunities Occupations have been defined as those professions for which Nova Scotia has employment opportunities.

You can apply under Category B, if you have:

  • Your profile registered for the Express Entry system from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
  • Scored 67 or more points in the six selection factors under this immigration stream.
  • A minimum of one year of skilled work experience in any of the target occupations.
  • A high school credential or equivalent from Canada
  • Proved language ability in French or English at Canadian Language Benchmark 7.
