For those who are wanting to get into the Atlantic (New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, PEI), some great programs under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot initiative are coming our way. There are 2,000 spots allotted for these programs. And the IRCC will start accepting application for these programs in March 2017. The programs are: For skilled workers: Atlantic High-Skilled Program and Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program For international student graduates: Atlantic International Graduate Program Some key details for the above Atlantic skilled workers programs: - you will need at least 1 year of work experience in the last 3 years - inside or outside of Canada - an educational assessment that is equivalent to Canadian studies - language test - proof of funds - settlement plan - provincial endorsement certificate (see below some detail on job offer) - you will need a job offer from an employer from the Atlantic province - the job offer needs to be reviewed by the province - endorsement certificate will be issued based on this - but more details on these at a later stage - the job offer for high skilled will need to be at least for a year, the job offer for intermediate skilled will need to be indeterminate - and the best part is that...you do not need an LMIA Read up on the details of this great pilot initiative here - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/atlantic/index.asp and here http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/atlantic/eligibility.asp Get ready and good luck, peeps! P.S. - this is not PNP.
Hello everyone I've been keeping an eye on the NSPNP Express Entry: Demand since last year. They haven't been accepting new applications for EE Demand since sometime in 2015 & last year the doors remained shut for this stream. I haven't visited the other forum for a while, but thought I'd peep in there to see if there is rumor that something might happen this year. It would appear that applicants that received AOR in Nov 2015 is only receiving ITA now. Good golly! That is a long wait! I'm not sure which NSPNP streams these peeps are under though. Has anyone here heard any birdies whistle about the EE demand stream possibly opening up this year?
I just wanted to share some great news. I received a job offer from a company in Halifax this week. According to the company they have done this a couple of times before, and the job offer should let me qualify for the NSNP skilled worker category without the need of an LMIA. If that comes through the next step is an LMIA exempt work permit based on the provincial nomination in order for me to go over and start working for them while I wait for PR to be finalised. Unfortunately this stream is not aligned to EE and it seems the paper based PR for PNP candidates take quite a bit longer than EE. I am really excited about this and really happy that things are starting to move forward. I almost lost hope when NB closed the open category for their PNP which I sent an EOI for, but is it just that fact that made find the job opening which I applied for under the jobs section on the http://www.workingin-canada.com/jobs site. If all goes well I should be in Halifax in about 9 or 10 months.
MaryJane posted a topic in ApplicationSeptember 16, 2015 http://www.canadavisa.com/news/entry/nova-scotia-given-increased-allocation-for-express-entry-canadian-immigration-streams-16-09-15.html The province of Nova Scotia today announced that it has been granted 300 additional spaces for its Express Entry streams, known as Nova Scotia Demand: Express Entry and Nova Scotia Experience: Express Entry. Both streams are aligned with the government of Canada’s Express Entry immigration selection system, which manages the selection of new skilled immigrants to Canada. The move will allow Nova Scotia to nominate 1,350 immigrants under the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP) in 2015. "We pushed the federal government hard for this increase and they responded after they saw our proactive approach," said Premier Stephen McNeil. "This decision will allow Nova Scotia to nominate 1,350 immigrants under the Provincial Nominee Program, nearly double our 2014 cap of 700." Today’s news represents the first time that a province has had its enhanced Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allocation increased in the middle of the year.
