Candidates that have received a Letter of Interest (LOI) from Nova Scotia in this draw have 30 calendar days, until November 6, 2021, to submit an application for nomination to the province.
In previous Labour Market Priorities draws from 2020 and 2021, the province has targeted nurses (NOC 3021), financial officers (NOC 1114), programmers and interactive media developers (NOC 2174), vehicle body repairers (NOC 7322), automotive service technicians, truck and bus mechanics and mechanical repairers (NOC 7321), and Express Entry profiles with a high Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) in French.
Candidates cannot apply to the Labour Market Priorities stream without first receiving an invitation from the province. Nova Scotia uses the Express Entry system to select candidates that meet their draw-specific criteria. To be considered, candidates must have indicated their interest in Nova Scotia on their Express Entry profile.
