Calling all Early Childhood Educators and Assistants

Aug 10, 2018Immigration

If you are an early childhood educator or assistant with at least two years of work experience, this is the time for you to migrate to Canada. There is currently a strong need for early childhood educators and assistants in Nova Scotia and someone like you is needed to help fill this labour shortage.

What is an Early Childhood Educator and Assistant?

Under the Government of Canada, Early childhood educators plan, organize and implement programs for children between the ages of infancy and 12 years. Early childhood educator assistants provide care for infants and preschool- to school-age children under the guidance of early childhood educators. Early childhood educators and assistants lead children in activities to stimulate and develop their intellectual, physical and emotional growth and ensure their security and well-being. They are employed in child-care centres, daycare centres, kindergartens, agencies for exceptional children and other settings where early childhood education services are provided. Supervisors of early childhood educators and assistants are included in this unit group.

Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities

The Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities stream selects candidates in the federal Express Entry system who meet provincial labour market needs to apply for nomination. Due to the shortage of early childhood educators and assistants in Nova Scotia, this new stream hopes to target early childhood educators and assistants and fast track their immigration process.

The change will allow the province to invite people with federal pre-approval to come to Canada to immigrate immediately to Nova Scotia to fill the need of ECE’s and assistants. This stream hopes to target around 180 international early childhood educators and assistants although there is no set immigration target.

Does this Apply to You?

You may be eligible under this new stream if you:

  1. Receive a Letter of Interest from the Nova Scotia Nominee Program within the Express Entry system
  2. Meet the minimum work experience requirements of the Express Entry stream for which you have qualified
  3. Can demonstrate sufficient funds to successfully establish yourself and your family in Nova Scotia and to pay your immigration costs and travel expenses
  4. Have legal status in your current country of residence
  5. Meet eligibility criteria in place at the time you are issued a Letter of Interest

If you meet the requirements to be eligible under this stream, this is the perfect opportunity to migrate to Canada. Let us help determine your eligibility and assist you to make use of this opportunity. Please contact us for an assessment or any additional information.
