These applications are required to be placed in Category B, wherein a job offer is not compulsory, but all candidates in the Express Entry must possess work experience in the eligible occupation.

They can apply for a provincial nomination, through the Nova Scotia Nominee Program. It is presently aligned with the enhanced Express Entry- stream, which can add 600 additional CRS points to the successful applicants. They also receive an ITA, which in turn leads to an application for PR in future draws in the pool.

Category B of Express Entry of Nova Scotia is extremely popular and is known for its short and quick intakes. The candidates interested in applying, need to be well prepared.
