A Brief Note on Express Entry, Labour Market Impact Invitations
Prince Edward Island’s Express Entry Category works along with the Canadian Federal Express Entry System. The Express Entry System is responsible for managing Canada’s three most economic immigration programs which are the Federal Skilled Worker Class program, the Federal Skilled Trades Class Program and the Canadian Experience Class Program. Candidates on receiving a provincial nomination certificate from Prince Edward Island will be receiving 600 additional CRS Scores to his/her total.
Prince Edward Island’s Labour Impact Category is divided into three Expression of Interest based streams:
- Skilled Workers
- International Graduates
- Critical Workers
It should be noted that Labour Impact Category is not aligned with the Express Entry System and candidates applying for these streams should either be working in PEI or should be having an eligible full-time employment offer from an employer.
Foreign Entrepreneurs who look forward to run or invest in one of the businesses in PEI should be pursuing the Business Impact: Work Permit Stream. The lowest ranking candidate on the April 18th draw has a score of 107 and this stream operates only on an Expression of Interest Basis.
