On Thursday, May 16, 104 immigration candidates were invited to apply to the Prince Edward Island nominee program in a draw that featured Express Entry, Business impact, and Labour impact categories.
Predetermined numbers of economic immigration candidates who meet the needs of the local market are nominated through Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP). 90 of the 104 invited candidates submitted an Expression of Interest (EoI) to the province PNP either in its several streams of Labour Impact Category or Express Entry category.
As obtainable in all Canadian provinces, PEI Express Entry category is connected to the federal Express Entry system. Federal Skilled Trades Class, Federal Skilled Workers Class and Canadian Experience Class immigration categories are managed by the federal Express Entry system.
In order to be part of the provincial nomination pool, candidates applying through Express Entry are required to register a distinct EoI with the PEI PNP. Candidates are not required to have work experience or job offer in the province PEI PNP has a preference for people living and working in the province.
Candidates are graded on a scale of 100 based on Education, English or French proficiency, etc. Then candidates who rank highest get an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination. Once nominated by the province, Express Entry candidates are certain of getting an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence because 600 points are added to their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
PEI did not reveal further details about Express Entry and Labour impact in the draw including the minimum score invited.
Business Impact category
The remaining 14 candidates were invited through Business impact with a minimum score of 107, same as the April 18 draw.
People who are interested in having or running a business in PEI apply through this category, and if nominated and approved, they are given temporary work permit to start the business. They can later apply for Canadian permanent residence if they meet the province’s performance agreements.
