Nova Scotia launched its recent Express Entry immigration scheme on November 17, 2018. It included 225 new nomination opportunities.
The Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry Stream offered immigration opportunities under the Category B, which is part of the four classes that allowed Canadians to pin-point eligible candidates wishing to gain full residency into Canada.
The Express Entry Program deals with nominations under the economic category that manages highly skilled persons. Applicants can either belong the Federal Skilled Employee Category, Federal Skilled Trades or the Canadian Experience category.
The B category of the Express Entry does not require an employment opportunity or work experience. Neither does it need one to have a Comprehensive Ranking Score, which is the criterion used to rank each applicant under the Express Entry program.
A CRS score of 600 comes from provincial selections and an approved proposition under the B category allows an individual to apply for permanent Canadian residency with no consideration of their initial CRS score.
The Express Entry, Category B requires applicants to have work experience in one of the 11 Nova Scotia occupational categories. The 17 November program had a first come, first serve basis. That means applicants who apply first are considered until the intake window closes, which typically usurps hours.
Another Category B Express Entry nomination took place on April 28, and it also took a matter of hours.
