The Canadian province of Nova Scotia invited 312 Express Entry candidates with eligible work experience as early childhood educators and assistants in a new draw held on June 3.
The invitations were issued through The Nova Scotia Nominee Program’s (NSNP) Labour Market Priorities Stream, which allows the province to search the federal Express Entry pool for candidates with eligible work experience in an occupation that is facing acute labour shortages in the province.
NSNP allows Nova Scotia to nominate a set number of immigration candidates for Canadian permanent residence through its eight streams tailored to specific economic needs in the province.
The June 3 invitation round was the second through the Labour Market Priorities Stream to target Express Entry candidates with work experience in National Occupational Classification 4214 — Early childhood educators and assistants.
In order to be considered for a provincial nomination through Nova Scotia’s Labour Market Priorities Stream, candidates are first required to enter a profile in the Express Entry pool.
Other selection criteria included:
• a candidate should have received post-secondary education in early childhood education for children aged 0 to 8 years;
• a candidate should have completed a program of two or more years at a university, college, trade or technical school, or other institute; and
• a candidate should have letters of reference from employers demonstrating proof of a minimum of five years of work experience in NOC 4214.
Those candidates, who received an invitation on June 3, had submitted their Express Entry profile on or after August 8, 2018.
The Labour Market Priorities Stream has now been used four times since its establishment in August 2018. Apart from the two invitations rounds for early childhood educators, the stream has also targeted financial auditors and accountants and Express Entry candidates who listed French as their first official language.
