PEI – Canada’s smallest province launched its system of Expression of Interest at the beginning of the year 2018. Since then it holds monthly invitation rounds for immigration candidates who meet labour market needs in the province.
Candidates who receive an invitation through PEI Provincial Nominee Program’s (PEI PNP) Express Entry or Labour Impact categories can apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
The vast majority of invitations issued in November 21 draw – 157 – went to candidates through the Express Entry and Labour Impact categories.
However, the PEI PNP did not give a breakdown of how many Express Entry applicants were invited or the minimum required EOI score.
The PEI PNP has now issued 1,336 invitations to immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence through the Express Entry and Labour Impact categories in 2019.
Another 14 invitations were issued to candidates with an EOI profile in PEI’s Business Impact: Work Permit Stream, with a points threshold of 130.
The province’s Business Impact: Work Permit Stream is for applicants who wish to own and operate a business in PEI.
In order to apply under Work Permit stream, candidates must obtain a Canadian work permit and work for a PEI business for a certain amount of time as designated in a Performance Agreement.
