Prince Edward Island Express Entry

The Prince Edward Island Express Entry category, linked to the federal Express Entry system, allows the province to select eligible candidates from the Express Entry pool and nominate them for Canada PR. The Express Entry candidates who wish to receive provincial nomination from Prince Edward Island must submit a separate Expression of Interest to the PEI PNP. Those who receive provincial nomination will have 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points added to their total CRS score. That would guarantee them an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent Express Entry draw.

Prince Edward Island Expression of Interest

Those who wish to be considered for provincial nomination through the Express Entry and Labour Impact categories of PEI PNP must first submit an Expression of Interest. Each Expression of Interest profile submitted this way is assessed and awarded a score on the basis of the point assessment grid of the PEI PNP. The highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply for a provincial nomination in the draws that are held on a monthly basis.

In the case of the latest draw, PEI PNP is yet to reveal the exact number of Express Entry candidates who received invitations and the minimum score required to be selected.

Foreign nationals who have a valid job offer and support from a Prince Edward Island employer may apply for a provincial nomination through the Labour Impact category. The category has three streams: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker and International Graduate.
