Sept 20: Nova Scotia invited candidates with experience as Carpenters (NOC 7271)

Sept 20: Nova Scotia invited candidates with experience as Carpenters (NOC 7271) in a draw for the Labour Market Priorities stream.

Selected candidates are required to provide letters of reference from employers to demonstrate that they have two or more years of skilled trades experience as a carpenter.

Self-employed carpenters were also eligible and have to provide documentation from third parties indicating the service provided, and payment details.

Those selected must also have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of 5 or higher in English or French in all four language abilities: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

The Labour Market Priorities Stream was launched in August 2018 and since then has been used to invite early childhood education workers, financial auditors and accountants, and French-speaking Express Entry candidates.

The carpenters selected from the September 20 draw now have 30 days to apply for a provincial nomination.

Successful nominees receive 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points towards their Express Entry ranking score, effectively guaranteeing them an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
