165 immigration candidates invited in PEI PNP draw

In the largest Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) draw held so far in 2022, the province invited a total of 165 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination. The draw, held on July 21, issued invitations to candidates belonging to the Labour Impact, Express Entry and Business Impact streams under the PEI PNP. While 138 invitations were issued to Labour Impact and Express Entry candidates, 27 invitations were issued to Business Impact candidates. The minimum score required by the Business Impact candidates was 60 points. The Expression of Interest system of the PEI PNP was launched in 2018. Last year, the province invited a total of 1933 invitations. In 2020, the number was 1955. In 2021, a total of 1764 invitations were issued to Labour Impact and Express Entry candidates.

Prince Edward Island Express Entry stream

The Express Entry stream of the PEI PNP is aligned to the federal Express Entry pool. The Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination, 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. The PEI PNP Express Entry category has two pathways under it, the one that requires the candidates to have a job offer and another one, which does not require a job offer.
