Nova Scotia invited Express Entry candidates with job offers

Nova Scotia held a new draw inviting Express Entry candidates with a job offer from a Nova Scotia employer on December 1.

The invitations were issued through the Labour Market Priorities Stream, which allows Nova Scotia to search the federal Express Entry pool for candidates who meet provincial labour market needs.

To be eligible for the December 1 draw, candidates had to meet the following selection criteria:

  • have received a job offer from a Nova Scotia employer for full-time (at least 30 hours per week) skilled work in Nova Scotia;

  • have one year of qualified job-related experience;

  • have obtained a Canadian high school diploma or equivalent;
