Nova Scotia Invited Eligible Carpenters in Latest Labour Market Priorities Draw


On 20th September, Nova Scotia has held its second draw for Labour Market Priorities. The province has invited total 22 eligible carpenters for a provincial nomination to apply for permanent residence of Canada.

This Labour Market Priorities Stream of Nova Scotia helps the province find suitable candidates from the Express Entry pool to fulfill its labour market needs. Since its introduction in the year 2018, this stream under NSNP has invited financial auditors and accountants, early childhood education workers, and French-speaking candidates from Express Entry pool.

In this latest draw, the candidates are required to provide reference letters from their respective employers to show that they have 2 or more years experience in a skilled trade as a carpenter. In fact, self-employed carpenters may also qualify and are required to show documentation from their third parties clients to demonstrate that they have provided them the service along with payment information.

All the candidates who wish to get selected must score a minimum score of 5 CLB or higher in English or French language as well in all four language abilities. They are also required to show proof of funds to prove that they can financially support their and their family member s living expenses.


As per a statement issued by NSNP s spokesperson, "there was no minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement."

For this latest draw, no minimum CRS score requirement is issued. Though, it is always determined by a candidate’s rank obtained in the Express Entry pool on the basis of key profile factors like age, skilled work experience, education, English or French language proficiency, etc.

Moreover, candidates who are in an Express Entry pool and already obtained a provincial nomination will get an additional 600 points toward their overall CRS score, which guarantees them an ITA (invitation to apply) for permanent residence visa of Canada.

And those carpenters who have received their LOIs (Letter of Invitation) in the latest draw, they have 30 days time to submit their completed application to the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP).
