Quick Enquiry

The Nova Scotia Draw Government issued invitations to Express Entry candidates seeking a Canada PR nomination. They need to have work experience in the capacity of Accountants or Financial Auditors.


These invitations issued on January 24 were in the Labor Market Priorities Stream, launched in 2018.  Additionally, this Stream permits Immigration Office of Nova Scotia to search the federal Express Entry pool. It can seek such eligible candidates who have good work experience in these specific occupations. EE candidates receiving the invitation in the first draw of 2019 of the stream needed work experience of five years in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 1111 especially for Financial Auditors and Accountants.

The date of the selection

The date of selection for candidates in this Jan 24 draw was July 1, 2018. They had to submit the EE profiles, and also get a score between 400 and 450, as a criterion. Furthermore, this ranking score depends on many factors like work experience, education, age, and proficiency in English/French. Moreover, a fixed number of the top scoring candidates receive the invitation to apply for PR in regular rounds. To get a consideration to immigrate through the LMP Stream, and also for other provincial nominee streams, having an alignment with Express Entry- candidates have to initially submit an EE profile.

Low score

Nova Scotia issued invitations to such candidates who had a score of 400; the recent EE Draw invited candidates who had a minimum score of 443. After obtaining the provincial nomination EE candidates also get 600 additional points in their ranking score. This also serves as an effective assurance to get the invitation seeking permanent residence in Canada in the following invitation round. Through this draw, good news comes for the EE candidates who have a rank score below the cut-off in EE draws. It’s a reminder that the PNP streams can help EE candidates who have a low score to achieve the goal of becoming a permanent resident.

A new dimension

Furthermore, the validity of an Express Entry profile is 12 months, but candidates must note that Nova Scotia considered profiles only submitted after July 1, 2018, in this draw. Following are requirements for the selected candidates in this LMP draw:
  • Having a bachelor’s degree or completing a three years program at a university/college, or a trade/technical school.
  • A CLB score of 7 in English/French for reading, speaking, listening, and writing.
  • Letters of reference issued by employers as proof of 5 years work experience minimum in NOC 1111.
