The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) has urged the potential applicants to continue submitting Expressions of Interest for provincial nomination. The PEI PNP has informed that they may perform unscheduled draws in this period of uncertainty, a Canada immigration website quoted.
The third Expression of Interest draw of PEI PNP was scheduled to take place on March 19. But it had to be postponed indefinitely owing to the COVID-19 crisis. Yet another draw, planned on April 19, also had to be postponed.
The immigration office of the PEI PNP is closed in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis and the staff is working remotely. In these circumstances, it is uncertain when the next Expression of Interest draw of PEI PNP will be conducted.
