Prince Edward Island Expression of Interest system
Though a job offer is not necessary to submit an Expression of Interest, the candidates who are living and working in the province are given priority. Prince Edward Island has a unique points grid based on which points are awarded to candidates of different categories. Points are awarded on the basis of information provided by the candidates on their Expression of Interest profile.
The first step in applying for immigration to Prince Edward Island is creating an Expression of Interest profile. The province will invite those candidates with highest scores to apply for provincial nomination.
