Who Can Qualify For Provincial Nominations Under PEI PNP?

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) is a unique arrangement that allows Canadian provinces/territories to maintain autonomy in fulfilling the labor demand by the immigration of desirable candidates.

They are also aligned with the federal Express Entry pool which expands their scope to nominate suitable candidates for provincial nominations. 

More often, the desirability of candidates depends on the following factors: 

  • Candidate’s provincial ties, including familial ties or graduation from any institute within the province; 
  • Work experience inside or outside Canada;
  • Age & mandatory language proficiency in English or French. 

Interested candidates must create an EOI profile with the PEI PNP in order to be considered for a provincial nomination. Such EOI profiles are evaluated and scored on the basis of the province’s unique points grid.

The highest-scoring candidates are then invited to apply through monthly-scheduled draws.

Analyzing the results of the PEI PNP draw on March 18, 140 invitations went to candidates under the Express Entry and Labour Impact streams. 

The invited Express Entry candidates may already qualify for any one of the three federal economic-class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Further, they are eligible for an additional 600 points toward their pre-determined CRS score after receiving a successful provincial nomination. This is enough to guarantee an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw.

Eligible candidates are given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for their age, work experience, education, and language proficiency in English or French.

Further, the Labour Impact Category is for foreign nationals who have a valid job offer in P.E.I., and have support from their employer. It is divided into three streams: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker, and International Graduate.

The remaining 10 invitations out of the total 150 invitations went to Business Impact candidates who had a minimum point threshold of 70. They are asked to apply the Work Permit Stream which allows foreign entrepreneurs to own and operate a business on the island.

Keeping track of the latest draws, matching your eligibility against the dynamic requirements, and predicting the highest chance of visa approval is a time-consuming task.

Further, Canada is set to target over 80,800 new immigrants through the PNPs alone this year. Another 108,000 new immigrants will be welcomed through the Express Entry system to apply for Canada PR.
