Category B of the Nova Scotia Demand: The Express Entry immigration stream of the province which was scheduled to reopen on October 11th for receiving 300 new applications has successfully touched the intake limit for the present lock-in period. It now permits eligible candidates having the required work experience in a designated and eligible occupation can now submit an application for receiving provincial nomination under the Nova Scotia Nominee Program. It is considered a popular program in the country.

It is an enhanced Express Entry-aligned stream and has the feature of giving 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System points to the successful applicants. They also receive an ITA for permanent residence in future draws from the pool.

 The speed and swiftness of the intake period were expected, owing to the popularity of this stream in the past. The immigration authorities in Nova Scotia mentioned that a plan was underway to reopen the stream in the future also.
