The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in Prince Edward Island (PEI) held its first 2019 draw on 17th January. 91 invitations to apply were issued to Express Entry candidates through the Business Impact and Labor Impact categories. The PNP for Prince Edward Island gives the province an opening to the Express Entry pool to nominate a specified number of candidates for Permanent Residence every year. Of all the 91 applicants who received invitations, 61 of them came through the Labour Impact and the provinces' PNP Express Entry categories. The Express Entry stream for Prince Edward Island is connected to the Canadian Government's Express Entry System. This system controls the pool of candidates in the three economic immigration programs in Canada; Canadian Experience, Federal Skilled Workers and Federal Skilled Trades Classes. Candidates who have previously registered their profiles in the Express Entry pool and would like to work and/or reside in Prince Edward Island should register a different Expression of Interest (EOI) with the PEI PNP. The EOI is a declaration of interest for Provincial Nomination and not an application of any sort. In Prince Edward Island, applicants from the Federal Express Entry pool can submit their Expression of Interest with or without a job offer in the province. It however preferentially considers those who work and live in the province. Applicants are screened by a point-based assessment method, in which points are awarded to factors like proficiency in the language, work experience, and education. Those who earn the highest scores would be given invitations to apply for Nomination by a province in one of the draws held on a monthly basis. Moving further, applicants who get nominated by a province have 600 extra points added to their ranking score. It means that they have secured a spot at the top of the list for those who would be invited to apply for Permanent Residence.
