In the second of a summer mini-series on Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs, CICNews.com is taking a look at migration to Eastern Canada, particularly the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
Following the news earlier this week that the Eastern Canadian areas have agreed on a coordinated immigration strategy with the government, booked to start next year, now is a decent time to audit the arrangement of PNP alternatives currently in place in the region.
The approach of the Express Entry immigration selection system, which was initially dispatched in January, 2015, was an important occasion for the PNPs, as it allowed regions to make “enhanced” immigration streams that are adjusted to the government choice system, while additionally allowing them to keep their “base” streams outside that system. Canada’s Eastern areas have taken the chance to adjust segments of their PNPs with Express Entry, in doing that it makes their projects significantly more alluring to potential newcomers than was already the case. This article will audit improved and base PNP streams across Eastern Canada.
Nova Scotia Nominee Program
Nova Scotia has been something of a pioneer among the provinces concerning PNP movement, as it has effectively campaigned the federal government for a series of allocation increases for the NSNP.
The Nova Scotia Experience: Express Entry stream, which gives a pathway to permanent residence for skilled candidates who have worked for a Nova Scotia employer for no less than one year, remains open as of now.
The NSNP was additionally the main PNP to contain various streams adjusted to the government Express Entry framework, to be specific the Nova Scotia Demand and Nova Scotia Experience streams. While Nova Scotia Demand is not tolerating new applications as of now, it is possible that the stream will revive later on, as it did twice in 2015. The latest criteria for this stream states that it is not a requirement to have a job offer, but rather to have involvement in one of 29 sought after occupations, incorporating occupations in financing, engineering, IT, and health care.
New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP)
The NBPNP stream that aligns with the government Express Entry system is known as the Express Entry Labor Market Stream (EELMS). This stream works on an ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) premise. Hopefuls may finish an EOI form and send it to the NBPNP. Applicants are then appointed a score based on the information given, after which they are evaluated according to the following criteria; highest score, evidence of training and experience in a high priority sector as determined by the province, demonstrated ability to become economically established in the province and the chance of positivity contributing to the provincial labour market. The highest ranked applicants are then invited to applyto the NBNP.
Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEIPNP)
A year ago, PEI issued more improved provincial nomination certificates, with respect to its own particular population, than anyother region. In doing that, Canada’s smallest province is demonstrating that it is feasible immigration destination for Express Entry hopefuls. PEI’s Express Entry stream apparently includes the simplest initial step of the all the provinces’ Express Entry streams, as applicants are just requested that finish a single page online form outlining their purposes behind wishing to move to PEI. In order to present this form effectively, applicants must have already created an Express Entry profile. The PEI PNP then invites a selection of these applicants to apply on a priority basis.
Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP)
Newfoundland and Labrador was generally late on the scene concerning adjusting its NLPNP to the Express Entry system, but has now effectively issued various upgraded provincial nomination certificates. Applicants for the NLPNP Express Entry stream must have a job offer and reach a point limit on an assessment grid.
Regarding its base stream, the NLPNP has separate streams for skilled and global graduates.
The NLPNP Skilled Worker stream accepts applications from people who have received a guaranteed job offer from a Newfoundland and Labrador business. The International Graduate stream targets global understudies who have moved on from a recognized tertiary educational institution in CanadaThe candidate does not need to have moved on from an establishment in Newfoundland.
