One of the consistent Provincial Nomination Programs (PNP) in 2021 is from the Canadian province of the Prince Edward Islands (PEI).
On July 15, PEI PNP held its pre-scheduled draw for the month of July 2021.
The province issued 127 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination under either one of the three streams: Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact.
Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are designed to accommodate the specific and specialized labour market demand of Canada’s provinces and territories. A successful provincial nomination will improve the scope to obtain permanent residence in a quick time.
Highlights On July 15 PEI PNP Draw
Since the launch of the federal Express Entry system in 2015, all the immigration streams under Canada PNP are categorized into two: ‘enhanced’ provincial streams and ‘base’ nomination streams.
A total of 118 invitations went to Express Entry and Labour Impact categories.
In order to be considered for a provincial nomination from PEI, candidates must create an Expression Of Interest (EOI) profile with the PEI PNP. EOI profiles are given points based on the province’s unique points grid. The highest-scoring candidates are then invited to apply through monthly draws.
If a candidate is already registered in the federal Express Entry pool, they could qualify for provincial nomination under the PEI PNP Express Entry category.
Foreigners like Skilled Workers, Critical Workers, and International Graduates with a valid job offer in PEI, and having support from their employer may qualify under the Labour Impact category.
The remaining 9 invitations went to applicants under the Business Impact category. Such candidates are issued invitations under the Work Permit Stream, which is for foreign entrepreneurs who want to own and operate a business in PEI. They required a provincial score of above 60 points in order to receive nominations. All other previous draws had a qualifying score of above 80 points.
Further, fulfilling the pre-determined residence requirement in Canada, eligible candidates can apply with the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residency.
