Nova Scotia targeted Social and Community Service Workers from Express Entry pool in its latest Labour Market Priorities Stream draw (WWICS : 09201912Ga1737)

The Canadian province of Nova Scotia has issued invitations to Express Entry candidates with work experience as social and community service workers (NOC 4212) in a new draw through its Labour Market Priorities Stream held on December 5.

Launched in August 2018, the Labour Market Priorities Stream allows the province to search the federal Express Entry pool for candidates with specific work experience and invite them to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence through Nova Scotia immigrant nominee program (NSNP).

The December 5 selection round was the eighth draw in the history of the Labour Market Priorities stream wherein candidates received invitations to apply Canada PR through Provincial Nomination Program.

It was also the first NSNP draw to specifically target NOC 4212 for social and community service workers.

Previous draws this year have targeted Express Entry candidates with eligible work experience as registered nurses or registered psychiatric nurses (NOC 3012), carpenters (NOC 7271), financial auditors and accountants (NOC 1111), Early childhood educators and assistants (NOC 4214), among others.

Candidates selected through December 5 Labour Market Priorities draw, had to meet the following requirements:

  • have a primary occupation of social worker or community service worker (NOC 4212);
  • letters of reference from employers to demonstrate two or more years of full-time or equivalent part-time experience as a social worker or community service worker in the last five years;
  • Canadian Language Benchmark score of 7 or higher in English or French in all four language abilities – reading, writing, speaking and listening;
  • Bachelor’s degree or have completed a program of three or more years at a university, college, trade or technical school, or other eligible institute;
  • Have a valid Express Entry profile that was submitted on or after December 6, 2018.

Candidates who received a Letter of Interest (LOIs) in December 5th draw, now have 30 calendar days to submit their complete application for provincial nomination to NSNP.
