PEI PNP Express Entry category
The PEI PNP’s Express Entry category is aligned to the federal Express Entry system. The first step for an Express Entry candidate to be considered for provincial nomination from Prince Edward Island is to submit an Expression of Interest profile to the PEI PNP. Each of these profiles is assessed and awarded a score based on the unique points grid of the PEI PNP. The highest scoring candidates are invited to apply for a provincial nomination in the PEI PNP Expression of Interest draws. The candidates who successfully obtain a provincial nomination from PEI PNP will also receive 600 additional CRS score points that guarantee them an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
PEI Labour Impact Category
The Labour Impact category allows candidates with a valid job offer from a PEI employer to apply for a provincial nomination with the support of their employer. Under this category too, the candidates need to submit an Expression of Interest first.
The PEI PNP authorities have not revealed a breakdown of invitations issued to Express Entry and Labour Impact category candidates. The minimum EoI score of selected candidates in each category has not also been revealed.
