Express Entry Draw Nova Scotia

Canadian provinces are wasting no time in inviting eligible foreign workers who will be able to fill the gaps in their respective labor markets.

Nova Scotia has mentioned time and again that immigrants will play a crucial role in ensuring the post-pandemic recovery of the province. In fact, Nova Scotia invited more immigrants than usual to compensate for the losses caused due to the pandemic.

On January 19, 2021, Nova Scotia decided to host its first draw of the new year. While the Nova Scotia Nominee Program has not revealed the specific number of invitations issued during the draw, there is no doubt that this is just the beginning.

Details of the draw

The draw targeted immigration candidates via the Labor Market Priorities stream. The people who managed to secure invitations to apply will now have the chance to get a provincial nomination. Having a provincial nomination benefits people who aspire to become permanent residents because they receive 600 additional CRS points.


All the people who were invited had existing, valid profiles under the Express Entry system. The Nova Scotia Nominee Program browsed the pool and chose eligible candidates who will be able to satisfy the needs of the provincial labor market. The invited candidates are all financial officers, i.e. they fall under the National Occupation Classification (NOC) code 1114.
