The Canadian province of Prince Edward Island (PEI) issued 143 invitations to Expression of Interest (EOI) candidates in the Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact categories of its Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP).
A total of 133 invitations went to candidates under Express Entry and Labour Impact categories.
The PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category is aligned with the federal Express Entry system. It allows the province to nominate Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class candidates for Canadian permanent residence.
PEI’s Labour Impact category is designed for foreign nationals with a valid job offer in the province and support from a PEI employer. Candidates in this category may fall under three possible streams: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker and International Graduate. However, this program is not aligned with Express Entry.
Another 10 invitations sent out to Business Impact candidates with a minimum score of 112 on the program’s points system, under the Work Permit Stream.
Candidates who wish to be considered for a provincial nomination through PEI PNP’s Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact categories need to first submit an EOI. Eligible candidates in each category are then entered into a pool and assigned a score based on the information provided in their EOI.
The highest-ranked candidates are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws from each pool.
The August 15th Express Entry draw issued 15 more invitations than the previous draw held on July 18, when 118 invitations were issued.
