Prince Edward Island Expression of Interest system
The Expression of Interest system of Prince Edward Island was introduced in 2018 and Expression of Interest draws are held in every month. However, this had been disrupted for a brief period owing to coronavirus pandemic. In 2021, Prince Edward Island PNP issued a total of 1933 invitations while it was 1955 in 2020. Of the total number of invitations issued in 2021, a total of 1764 were issued to Labour Impact and Express Entry candidates and the remaining 169 invitations were issued to Business Impact candidates.
Prince Edward Island Express Entry stream
The Express Entry stream of the PEI PNP is aligned to the federal Express Entry system. To receive an invitation under this stream, a candidate must have their profile in the federal Express Entry pool. If they receive a provincial nomination from Prince Edward Island, they will have 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score points added to their total CRS score. This would guarantee them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
