In the latest provincial draw held on October 17, 2019, Prince Edward Island PNP issued 158 invitations to apply to immigration applicants under its Express Entry, Business Impact, and Labour Impact categories.
Out of the total 158 invitations issued, 146 went to candidates through the PEI PNP’s 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 Expression of Interest (EOI) score.
Another 12 invitations were issued to candidates under PEI’s Business Impact: Work Permit Stream, with a points threshold of 122.
PEI’s Express Entry Category is for candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system, which runs the pool of applicants for three main economic immigration classes- Federal Skilled Trades Class, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Worker Class.
In order to be considered for a provincial nomination, Express Entry candidates first need to submit a separate EOI to the Prince Edward Island PNP.
EOI profiles are given a score based on various factors such as education, work experience and proficiency in English or French and the highest-ranked candidates are then invited to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws.
Labour Impact Category
PEI PNP’s Labour Impact Category is not aligned with the Express Entry system and provides foreign nationals with a valid job offer and support from a PEI employer with a pathway to Canadian permanent residence.
Candidates in this category may fall under three possible streams: Skilled Worker (in PEI and outside Canada), Critical Worker and International Graduate.
Business Impact: Work Permit Stream
The PEI PNP’s Business Impact: Work Permit Stream is for individuals with business ownership or extensive management experience who are interested in owning and operating a business in PEI.
PEI PNP has now issued a total of 1,177 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian Permanent residence through its Express Entry and Labour Impact categories in 2019 while another 168 invitations have now been issued to foreign entrepreneurs through Business Impact: Work Permit Stream in 2019.
